Hiveword - Keep your Story Ideas online - For Free!

If you get stuck without your little black notebook or even think that such things are very old school then you might want to have a look at Hiveword, an online resource for creating and saving plots, scenes,characters, locations.

The best thing about it is its free and enables you to keep your ideas safely tucked away in the Cloud.
Could be just the thing for those of us addicted to smartphones and tablets (although there is no App available yet.)

Hiveword is from the folks over at WritersKnowledgeBase - which is in itself a great hub for searching out writing articles on the web.

Have a look and see what you think...

Physical Attribute Thesaurus

After the success of their Emotion Thesaurus, the folks over at The Bookshelf Muse have started a Thesaurus for Physical Attributes with a first entry all about hands.

This sits alongside other useful tools such as the Shape & Colour Thesaurus, the Location Thesaurus ,the Weather Thesaurus and the Character Trait Thesaurus.

(At this point you can pick your plural: Thesauri or Thesauruses! Collective noun for a group of thesauri anyone?)

Links to all of these can be found on their really useful site.

Check it out!
