1. Apps that help you focus
Cold Turkey (for Windows) and Concentrate (for MAC) allow you to block websites that distract you from your tasks, which in our case is writing our novel. You choose how long certain websites are going to be blocked. Cold Turkey is actually so genius that you can’t reset your settings, which means you can’t cheat.
2. For Poets
Poetreat helps you to find the right words depending on the rhyming theme you choose. Welcome to the future!
I’ve already talked about this app but it’s really perfect, which is why I’m repeating myself. It’s like a virtual notebook that helps you to organize your whole life and your stories.
4. Get Encouraged
Ever heard of Help Me Write? It’s very simple: you add your writing ideas and your audience will help you decide if you should pursue that idea by saying if they’d like to read that.
5. For Radicals
Write or Die is an evil little app that will punish you if you don’t achieve your goal. You set how many words you want to write and choose what kind of ‘punishment’ you want, should you not succeed.
6. Get Help - literally
Poetica is a community of writers who are willing to put their work up for editing by anyone who is a member. Unfortunately it’s not open to everyone yet, but you can subscribe to their mailing list and wait. I think it’s worth it!
7. Organize Your Brainstorming
Scapple , Scrivener and Index Card are apps that help you structuring your work in order for you to get to the end of your first draft.
8. Name Generator
If you’re like me, you’re obsessed with names. I choose names carefully because I believe that names influence the story a lot (this might be silly, but I can’t help myself). I used to stare into nothing for ten minutes trying to come up with good names for side characters and then started a 30 minute Google search and then all of a sudden I was on tumblr and…yes, exactly. I lost track of what I was actually doing: writing. So this name generator that I found really helped me.

i can't tell if you review books anymore. it's sort of hard to find stuff.
I still do. I’ve been kind of on hiatus because of school, but I should be posting some over Christmas break.
When you’re in love with your best friend there’s nothing more terrifying than crossing that line.
After a devastating break up, Little-Miss-Like’s-Having-A’s Jenny Wessler is a total wreck. Only her best friend, sarcastic Chance Masters, can help her through it. As graduation draws near, college acceptances start rolling in, and rumors run through the school, Jenny is forced to come to terms with her feeling for her best friend. Were they ever even “just friends” to begin with?
Chance has been in love with Jenny since 8th grade. Their habit of making up stories about their pasts doesn’t help the matter. After her boyfriend ditches her, Chance finds himself struggling with his feelings more than ever. With his parents gone, his brother’s wedding, and a secret about his future, Chance has a lot of choices to make. The most important being: does he really want to risk losing Jenny?
what even is this movie summary
It’s the result of cramming three books into one movie, that’s what it is.
I really hate Carmen in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She learns the same damn lesson every book then forgets it and acts like a total ass in the next one.
