Resources for Writing Help
I know for some English is not their first language here, and for others it may be your first language, but perhaps you still have a list of bad writing habits you'd like to improve upon. I figured it might be helpful for us to post various resources for writing whether it be general grammar, design terms, etc. So I'd like to start off with my own list of things that I may look to sometimes, although I still highly recommend asking peers in Achaea to look over your work because it does help a great deal. Feel free to post any of your own resources that you have found help you out when you're writing.
- Grammarly: Helps improve your writing and corrects it up to ten times better than a word processor. Supposedly the world's most accurate grammar checker, and far more accurate than MS Word. You can also set it to check using British English instead of American English, where MS Word only uses American English. The British English part helps because that is what is used here in Achaea.
- Grammarly Blog: Grammarly's blog with different articles on writing tips, and common mistakes that people make while writing. Lots of great information here.
- Thesaurus: Because every writer should get familiar with a thesaurus for suggestions of using different synonyms and antonyms with their descriptive writing.
- 178 Ways to Describe Women's Clothing
- The Phrontistery: Plenty of lists in the glossary on words for everything from fabrics, combat, worship, etc. All kinds of tools you can use here.
- Words to describe colours
