So with NaNoWriMo(National Novel Writing Month) on the way, I thought I would share with everyone some of my favorite free writing resources out there available just in case they might help any fellow writers out there.
- Writers Knowledge Base. A search engine for writers.
- Odyssey Podcasts. A collection of podcasts which are recordings of lectures of writing.
- Descriptive Thesaurus. A thesaurus on how to describe everything from settings, to colors, to people.
- Ambient Mixer. This one was given to me by R.M.Walsh. It is a sound mixer where you can turn on or off the certain sound effects you need.
- Fantasy Map Generator. Another one given by R.M.Walsh. This literally creates a large size map.
- Medieval Demographic Generator. From the same site as above, but this one gives you stats on your locations. It will even generate how many bakers are in your city.
- Springhole.net a collection of helpful generators; such as a coin description generator, Magic secrets, character motivation, and more.
- Ywriter5. My favorite (free) writing software. It separates your novel into scenes and chapters, and let’s you have notes and character info in the software.
- SFWA World Building Questions. My favorite questions for world building.
- Fantasy Map Generator. This one was created by someone participating in NaNoGeMo. It even comes up with great sounding names.
