Today I was checking my links for word count helps and discovered that one I had on my Writers’ Helps page no longer takes us to the page we need. That’s disappointing, especially as it was a link to more than one ‘help’. That sent me on a search. Now in its place I’ve posted four great tools I found, plus a promotional help, that should be wonderful for your use.
- Rapid Word Counter not only counts your words, it counts the number of characters, including punctuation, you use in your story or paragraph.
- dCode changes uppercase to lowercase – and vice versa – for you.
- Worth a mention is something you might find will come in handy sometime – writing in reverse. How fun is that to work into a story! 🙂 It’s on DCode’s page where you can also see a list of other fun tools to use!
- I found an online typing test that rates your typing speed in a one minute test. After you type the words shown you are given a detailed report of your efforts. Very interesting.
Promotional help: Thanks to funtimesthree for this tip! An online business that looks to be a really good way to promote your book, skills, passion for writing and/or reading – or whatever – is Zazzle International. This link takes you to Zazzle.ca but you can select Zazzle.com or one of ten other sites for other countries. (Scroll to the bottom of their front page for the list.) It’s a site where you can order products that make a statement, or you can design products the way you want them – such as business cards, mugs, t-shirts and much more. I plan to use this site; it’s very similar to Café Press which I have tried. 🙂
You can find all the above-mentioned tools on my Writers’ Helps page. Please check them out and the many other helps listed there. I hope there is something of use to you.
Have you found anything that helps your writing, or aids in your promotional goals, that you wouldn’t want to be without?
Thank for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
