Admit it. Writing can be both boring and difficult. Sometimes it is a good idea to take a break and play some games, but if you are trying to stay focused, here are a few tools to motivate you, help improve your writing, conquer writer’s block, and make it fun again.
Some unique and fun writing tools include:
A Cliché Finder – a must-have for any writer
BlaBlaMeter – it lets you know how much bullshit hides in your text…
Written? Kitten! – counts your words as you type them and shows you a picture of a dog or a cat every 100 words (or 200, 500, or 1000)
I Write Like – a free, statistical analysis tool, which analyzes your word choice and writing style and compares them with those of the famous writers.
You Should Write – provides a new writing prompt each time you visit (for a new one, just “refresh”)
Vocabulary.com – provides a multiple choice quiz to help you learn new words (or to reinforce the meaning of words you might already know
One Look Dictionary Search – a unique search tool that helps you find what you need
I have to give a shout-out to Michele Clements James for the last four tools. 🙂
750 Words – This site tracks your word count, gives you a nice big screen to write on, automatically scrolls as you write (like a typewriter), and automatically saves your writing as you go. It also lets you know when you’ve passed the 750-word mark. 250 words per page is considered to be the standard accepted number of words per page. So, three standard pages are about 750 words. (Yes, I know I already mentioned this tool already.)
