October 1st, 2016 - Today is my birthday. NaNoWriMo is only a month away, unsure if I will partake this time but we'll see. Check it out of course, always a good way to get your novel first draft started.
I have discovered that there are even writing software that are online only, several sites came up in searches and I joined them all. LitLift is one that takes on, in a lot of ways, the old Authonomy method of putting your book out there while it is being written to be reviewed so that you can use that to better the book itself. It is a lovely site, with many different settings and options that allow you to really plan out your novel. I haven't used it all yet but it looks very nice considering it's online. It's also Free which is a big bonus for me.
LitLift - Free on-line novel and story writing software.
Absolute Write Water Cooler - Forums for writers to connect with each other and form friendships, gain knowledge and share work.
NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. (words pulled directly from the site btw)
