Writing Aid Programs

Programs designed to facilitate writing.  I find them helpful for either encouraging me to get the first draft done or get me over those writing slumps. I would appreciate if you used my referral links.

  • 4theWords – Fight Monsters with your words!  This interactive game has monsters with different word amounts and time levels.  Game mechanics applied to writing creates the needed impetus to get over writing humps.  The quests give the user direction but also a reason to keep writing.  I use the game for all my stories but also my Morning Pages, an Artist Way philosophy.  There is a supportive forum that offers:  encouragement, suggestions, and community support.

  • Grammarly—Grammar software has a free feature (basic grammar, spelling, and consistency), but I opted for the yearly premium subscription. The added features provide another layer of defense against those pesky editing errors. As a gold star collector, I love getting scored on my writing.
  • Carbonite is a backup program. I pay the yearly fee. I have used it three times: once for lost files and the other two times when I upgraded to a new computer and needed to transfer files. Again, it is another way to ensure I don’t lose files.
