- 750 Words. Unfortunately I didn't discover this website until after NaNoWriMo, but I'm so glad I did find it. Thanks to my lovely seester. This website encourages you to write at least 750 words a day by giving you points and badges. Not only that, when you've finished your words for that day it will tell you, an assortment of interesting information about your writing. Such as, how many words you have in total, what your writing is rated (G, PG, ect.) What the overall feeling of your writing was (affectionate, upset, sad), and your frequently used words, among other things.
- Write or Die. A rather popular tool among NaNoers. Keep those words flowing, or you'll be sorry. (Check the sidebar for the writing tool!)
- Baby Names. Easy to use, millions of names, meanings, origin, pronunciation and more!
- RhymeZone. Not only does it find a rhyme for any word entered, but synonyms, definitions, similar sounding words, homophones, checks spelling, and finds quotations, to name a few. All in all a great one stop word help.
- Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing. They work too. For those who just can't figure out where a comma really belongs, or for those who think diagramming is fun, this book is incredibly helpful!
- The 38 Most Common Fiction Writing Mistakes: And How to Avoid Them. I didn't agree with everything Mr. Bickham had to say, but this was still rather helpful!
- Big Fat Paycheck. For those interested in writing film scripts, this book just might come in handy. I do have to warn about some bad language however.
One thing that inspires me the most is having a chat with my "writer friends." Here are some blogs of some other writers I know.
