Tools for Writing

I came across this blogsite with a nice long list of tools for writers, and I thought I'd share them with you guys:

Re: Tools for Writing

The reason so many writing tips tell you to avoid adverbs is that they're so often abused. Adverbs are like spice...a little bit gives a bit of zing to a dish, too much overwhelms the natural flavour of the food.

Re: Tools for Writing

Now there's a saleable concept: Twist-on Cliches!

New, from Ronco[sup]TM[/sup] -- Hackneyed phrases for any occasion! Easy-to-use in day-to-day conversation or even in important correspondence -- when you can't find a new way to say something, just pick a tired, overused image or allusion from the patented Clause-O-Matic 5000[sup]TM[/sup], and slip it in with a simple twist of the tongue or click of the mouse!

Comes with over 50,000 cliches pre-installed, and special-purpose add-on modules are available for War, Love, Economics, Religion, and many more.

Act now, and you will also receive these amazing Ginza knives, ideal for fending off the competition at End-of-Season sales and charity bazaars ...

You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
