Best of the Random Bookmarks

I am home with a sick child today which means that while he sleeps, I am working on my book (and taking the occasional "Google Break").  So, as you can imagine, I have been bookmarking a lot of good sites lately, so I thought I would share a few of them with you.
  1.  AutoCrit is manuscript editing software that can help you identify problems with your manuscript, including pacing problems, spelling and grammar errors, repetitive words and phrases, cliches, and more!  There is a free trial available, if you are interested!
  2. WritingFix has writing prompts, lessons, and inspiration to help you get back to writing when the dreaded Writer's Block strikes. 
  3. Writers FM is a radio station for writers!  There is music, author interviews, writer prompts, and more. 
  4. Wordsmith is the place for word lovers.  It has "Word a Day" features, and also an anagram function that enlightened me to the fact that an anagram of my son's name is "A Cancelled Law."  Huh.  Who knew?
  5. I also stumbled upon some of the most amazing libraries!  Some of them are a bit too modern or froo-froo for my taste, but they are full of who am I to complain?
I need to get back to sick kids but, for inspiration, I will leave you with one of the libraries that amazed me:

Just LOOK at all those books!
