    Default Writing-related links + How to write an AAR

    This likely exists somewhere, but I've been running into quite a few good sites in the past few weeks I'd like to share, just in case they're helpful. If anyone else has some, do feel free to post them up.

    Writing Style



    Writing Exercises/Writers Block Breakers

    • oneword.com - get a random word, write for sixty seconds on it, and it's on their website
    • Language is a Virus - many different techniques for engaging creativity


    Writing Technique & Strategies



    Reference

    • 100 Ways To Say "Said" ...using only a quarter of the english alphabet. You'll look at this list and say "I knew that" but it's a good reminder of how many ways English has to add colour to poetry or prose
    • Psychology for Writers
    • Visuwords - Very cool visual thesaurus
    • Character Traits - thorough coverage of characteristics with which to define a character


    Expert Advice



    Writing Tools

    • Q10 - highly recommended (unfortunately only for Windows). Free text editor with on-screen word count, timer, and that's about it. Excellent for making you focus.
    • Title Generator - just hit the button and get six titles! Thought provoking at the least.

    Good idea!

    Three years ago the Shadow One also attempted to set up a writing class. Unfortunatly, he submitted only two articles before real-life commitments forced him to retire. You can find them here and here.

    That's digging farther back than I went in the archives. Thanks! Links added above.

    I've moved the 'How does one AAR" mini-guide into this thread for tidiness.

    Fixed broken links and added Vonnegut's "How to Write With Style".

    Some piously affirm: "The truth is such and such. I know! I see!"
    And hold that everything depends upon having the “right” religion.
    But when one really knows, one has no need of religion. - Mahavyuha Sutra

    Freedom necessarily involves risk. - Alan Watts
