Helpful Websites for Those Who Are Brave Enough To Embark On the Adventure of NaNoWriMo

    It's exactly two weeks until NaNoWriMo and before the craziness begins, I thought I'd show you all some of my favorite websites that can be very useful for your novel-writing quest.

    Sometimes the characters in books can be incredibly cliche, so to make sure that your character doesn't fall into the same rut as so many have in the past, take the Writer's Mary Sue Test by clicking here. (And answer the questions honestly or a deranged, zombified monkey will come and find you and then eat you.)

    And awesome blog that helped me get through NaNoWriMo last year was Inkygirl.com. This website is full of awesome and hilarious comics and during the month of November, there are always comics related to NaNoWriMo that your friends won't understand but you will because you conquered NaNoWriMo and they didn't. Get to the website by clicking here.


    I've never used this website for NaNoWriMo last year because I've only stumbled upon it recently but I'm sure I'll be using it this year. It's called Write Or Die and basically what you do is type in how many words you want to write and how much time you want to do it in and then a text box will pop up with your time and word count beneath it. It's a great way to just get your story down when you're having writer's block. Click here to try it out. 
   Coming up with names for your characters can be tough, a website I like to use is Nymbler.com. All you have to do is type in your favorite names and a list will be generated based on your specific taste in names. And it works! Click here to find your character names.


Well that's about all I can think of for right now. Do you know of any good websites that can be helpful during NaNoWriMo? Tell me about it!
