I found an interesting little character creation program called Character Writer by Typing Chimp Software. It sells for $69.99, a hefty price for students and struggling writers. You can try out a very pared down version of the software's character personality creation FREE online here. As far as I can tell, you may try it unlimited times--so if you need a FREE character IDEA starting generator...

Celtx is a FREE software program designed with five internal text writers (templates) for producing screenplays, stage plays, AV scripts, audio scripts, comic books, and novels. They offer a Plus version currently on sale (33% off) for $9.99 (aka $10). As a disclaimer I must tell you I have not used Final Draft or other screenplay software yet. I chose this software because it is FREE and does everything I currently need it to do. Well, and it was suggested by both Jared Sexton and Matt Mullins, authors and creative writing professors at Ball State University.

Ever feel the need to create a timeline or Storyboard for your story events and don't have enough wall space? I've found a few solutions, some of which make great brainstorming and notes organizing options as well.

What can you do if you want to write that awesome novel, essay, legal document, blog post or online journal post but you find yourself wasting time on Facebook, or surfing the web, instead? (Facebook, please don't sue me for referring to my frequent forays into your domain as "wasting time.")
