Whether you are participating in NaNoWriMo or not, these sites will make helpful resources for your writing.
- Got a grammatical question? Try Daily Writing Tips.
- Ever use a word cloud? It can be a great way to keep a visual reminder of your character’s traits or a fast way to see if you over use a word. Word Clouds for Kids worked best for me.
- You know about thesaurus.com, but sometimes a rhyme is what you need instead. Try Rhyme Brain.
- An app that identifies what age range you’ve written to and offers suggestions on how to tighten. A great little editor for the cost of a couple cups of coffee: The Hemingway Editor
- If you just want to make sure you are writing appropriately for your target age, Readability-Score is free, but doesn’t offer the editorial options available in Hemingway.
Bonus: If you are looking for good reading about writing, Kristen Lamb’s blog always offers something worth reading.
I received some of these from fellow writers in my critique group, Six Pens. If you’re not in a critique group, find one ASAP. Nothing sharpens your writing better.
