A very short and practical post: a list of the coolest online tools I’ve found that can help aspiring (or perhaps even professional) writers in their endeavor.
- The Hemingway App : a great tools to analyze your writing, its statistics, and its readability. (Don’t really agree with their ‘No adverbs’ policy, but still super useful)
- Romance Divas : not a tool in itself, but rather a really cool community for romance writers, where you can learn a ton of things about writing and advertising your work, either as a published or self-published author
- Thesaurus.com : your friend!
- Dictionary.com : my favorite dictionary, because it also provides the first date of use for most words, which is super useful when writing historical texts, since you can then determine whether the word was used already at the time you place your story.
- CloudConvert : a great online app to convert your Word/doc file to a mobi file. \o/
- The dictionary of Victorian London : an amazing resource on all things Victorian. Love to check it while writing one of my secret WIPs…
- Authonomy : An online writing community set up by publisher Harper Collins. Allows to publish a book online, have it read and reviewed, and even considered by HP editors if it make sit in the website’s top 5. A lot of whoring going on in there, and no, you’ll never make it in the top 5 because getting there is about being a social media ho rather than writing, but still a fun place if you don’t take too seriously.
That’s it for now, but I’ll update this post if I find some good stuff!
