5 Great Writing Resources That You Should Know About #amwriting

1) Chaotic Shiny:

This site, in reality, is the probably one of the only sites you need. It has like 50+ generators, and has many uses. Great for science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction writing.

2) Behind The Name:

It has a random name generator, name meanings for both first names and last names, and names that mean specific things.This could be used for any type of fiction writing when you need to come up with cool-sounding names, and especially when you want your characters’ names to have specific meaning.

3) Seventh Sanctum:

Like Chaotic Shiny, this site has lots and lots of different generators, including the What-if-inator, and the Alien Race Generator, which includes up to a paragraph of description for each generated result. This is a good website for fiction in general, but especially for fantasy, science fiction (and writing fanfiction crossovers!)

4) Word Hippo:

This is a site for all your word needs. Keep using the word ‘awesome’? Want to stop doing that as much and find other words for it?  What about when you’re writing a poem or a song and need words that rhyme with ‘you’? What about words for the opposite of ‘forward’? What if you want to know the word for apple in German? All of this can be done on one site: Word Hippo.

5) StoryToolz:

Construct titles from generated results. Generate conflict, and more conflict.  There’s also a cliché buster, and if you sign in/register, you can create a word count meter to track your writing progress.

Awesome. Er, amazing. Uh, astounding.

Hope these helped you! 😀
