Free help. Who needs it?
If you have downloaded iTunes or, like me, you are an Apple fan and have automatic access to the store, then you could do worse than download (for free) the series of podcasts entitled Roy's Writing Tools. These are fifty short podcasts of two or three minutes each during which the author Roy Peter Clark, examines one aspect of successful writing. Now, he is a journalist and as such favours the succinct, punchy style one associates with column inches, but his explanations of what does and doesn't work, backed up by succinct examples, is very useful indeed.
