Three of my favorite tools to use when writing.
My favorites bar on my computer screen is crowded one, though I honestly don’t use all of the sites regularly. There are three that get clicked on almost a daily basis.
The first one, of course, is for Triond. Triond is my escape, where I get to express myself and actually earn some cash for doing just that. It’s a little corner of the world that actually accepts my crazy mind as it is. If you enjoy writing and are looking for an outlet that gives back to you, the writer, then definitely check out Triond.
Equally important to me are two other sites: Dictionary.com and RhymeZone.com. I use Dictionary.com very frequently, as I do not want to put errors in my writing. The built in spell check is nice, but I always like to double check. Nothing turns a reader off more than silly errors in writing. Within the Dictionary.com website, there are also links for Thesaurus.com, Reference.com, as well as to a spanish translator and another translator that can translate from English to over 50 languages(and vice versa). These are tools that any writer can use to make a more meaningful statement with their writing. If you do not have Dictionary.com bookmarked, I suggest doing so, you will use it once you realize how helpful the site is.
RhymeZone.com is so useful for me, especially as I quite enjoy writing poetry but sometimes feel at a loss for words. I do not always, or even often, use a rhyming scheme with my poetry, but sometimes the site works as just a boost, to give me ideas as to where I want to go with a particular piece. As with Dictionary.com, RhymeZone.com has other features such as quizzes, games, quotations, and famous documents. I stumbled across this website, quite by accident, but it has become one of my favorite writing tools.
As writers, we are always looking for ways to make our writing to evolve into a more meaningful creature, with these sites at your fingertips, that creature is just waiting to be born!
