Two Things to Post Today

So, there are two things going on today. First, day 7 of the October Platform Challenge says I have to respond to 3 Tweets today. Not just chirp, but actually respond. So, okay, I'll get around to that. I did respond to a Tweet at 6 AM so I'm going to count that one.

The second thing is that Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi teamed up with Lee Powell and created a new software for writers. Don't know who these people are? Angela and Becca are the brains behind The Emotion Thesaurus and other useful resources for writers and Lee is the creator of Scrivener. Pretty cool. Anyway, their software launches today and below is their blog post.

Every once in a while, something comes along that changes things for the better.

And in the world of writers, this is especially welcoming, because we all know just how much sweat, courage and persistence it takes to write a book and then release it into the world. Today I'm pointing you toward a new website which I hope will help writers brainstorm stronger characters, craft deeper, more compelling plots, and teach us how to be more effective with our description so we draw readers in. One Stop For Writers is a collaboration between Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman, authors of The Emotion Thesaurus, and Lee Powell, creator of Scrivener for Windows. This powerhouse online library is filled with one-of-a-kind descriptive thesaurus collections, tools, tutorials and much more, all geared to provide the resources you need to strengthen your prose and write more efficiently.

Want to check One Stop For Writers out?

Hop on over to Writers Helping Writers for their Launch Week festivities (October 7-14th)! If you know Angela, Lee and Becca already, you probably can guess there will be some great prizes, and probably a bit of paying-it-forward too.
