Using this page, I’ll be linking to websites that help me with inspiration for writing.
Fic Promptly – A Community over at Dreamwidth where a daily theme is posted and others post with prompts relating to the theme.
Daily Prompt – Another community over at Dreamwidth where a daily theme is posted and members will post their responses in the comments.
Tales 100 – A small community on Dreamwidth dedicated to writing 100 word drabbles dedicated to Bandai Namco’s Tales of Series.
DailyPrompt – This is like Daily Prompt so it doesn’t really need a lot of explaining.
Fiction Drabbles – A lovely little community on Dreamwidth where you are given a weekly theme and you can post a response to the community. The great thing about this place is that you can post either fan fiction or original works!
Write or Die! – An online writing tool. Put in a word count, put in a time you want to write it and for the love of all things holy, don’t stop writing! Terrible things will happen if you don’t!
NaNoWriMo – If you haven’t heard of National Novel Writing Month then tsk tsk. Here’s the deets, every November, a lot of netizens take up the challenge of writing 50,000 words in the course of 30 days. Give it a shot; you just might enjoy yourself.
Writing Prompts – A Tumblr that posts daily prompts for writers.
LitReactor – An online writing community geared toward original fiction. It works on a points system and you need fifteen points to post a submission. Points are earned by critiquing others’ original works.
Visual Writing Prompts – Probably one of the best way to conquer writers block is through writing prompts. I’ve used these quite often recently just to keep the creative juices flowing.
NaPoWriMo – A version of NaNoWriMo except it’s for poetry. The goal of NaPoWriMo is to write one poem a month. It’s quite fun actually! It runs every May.
Archtype Writing – The Fiction Writer’s Guide to Psychology.
Poetic Forms by Brian Buckley. This page from Elfwood contains a list of many different forms of poetry along with examples.
A list of Writing Tutorials from Elfwood. These tutorials are geared towards Fantasy but a lot of the techniques used can applied to other genres of writing as well.
Camp NaNoWriMo – This different version of NaNoWriMo takes place twice a year in April and July. Unlike its November cousin, the camp lets you set your own word count for the month.
Archive of our Own – aka: AO3. The more fandom friendly version of The Pit. If you don’t know what The Pit is consider yourself lucky.
Grammarly – A grammar check for those whose grammar is not the greatest.
