Good resource.

Grammarstation is coming up in the browser as a broken or nonexistent link.

Wonder what happened? Change in URL?

Thanks for posting these tools, guys!

Wow! What an amazing collection of resources. I already had many of these in my bookmarks but there were several listed here which will be very useful in the future. Thanks to all who contributed!

My writing has seemed to wane in recent years but this particular forum has provoked me to recall my (somehow lost) love of writing and to stimulate my desire to write creatively.

If I were to gain nothing else from my time here at ATS, this in itself, is worth more to me than any words can convey.

Someone once asked me what I felt was my purpose in life. I was unable to answer for quite some time but ultimately, it was to create. I have created many things in my life with my own hands, but none of these has meant so much to me as the thoughts which I have been able to convey through words.

Don't forget Open Office. It's a free open-source alternative to Microsoft Word.

I use it.

I have used a lot of the information on this page. There is a plethora of information available here. There are work shops, how to's, and articles on the writing life. With all of the information available you should find something to help push your writing forward.

FEMA
Most serious writers consider this book to be their bible.

www.bartleby.com...

While you can purchase the book, this link provides an excellent resource as you can read the book online.

Hope you enjoy it.

[edit on 28-9-2005 by FEMA]





It's funny-- I knew you were linking "Elements of Style" just by your description.



And yes-- many writers, and books on the craft of writing recommend this book.

Another thing I also find useful (especially for designing characters) is tvtropes.org...

peace.

Hi everyone (boy am I coming to this thread late)

I've tried many of the suggested programs at one time
or another plus some others- my main criteria are
useful and free. (except for that one time but I'll get
to that)

My mainstay for writing is roughdraft
It's basic but does have tabbed browsing which is a must, a decent spell
checker, and word counter. There are other features like a thesaurus
plug-in, and the ability do a few different formats including Script style.
It's an older program so no updates. I highly recommend it.

For jotting down ideas, plot flow, etc, I use freewriter
It's a more fully developed program which I actually paid for a pro version
but I ended up not liking it overall. What I did like was the post-it-note
feature which can be arranged per chapter, etc. Now I use the free version
for that feature only. It's indispensable!

Those together make up my current *all free* writing suite.

anywho...happy writing!!
