Resource Roundup: 5 Time Savers for Writers

Today, I'd like to offer five nifty sites that can save a working writer time on a variety of tasks.

Task #1: Alphabetizing Lists.

Task #2: Finding Overused Words.

Task #3: Researching Etymology.

Task #4: Hunting for Descriptors and Synonyms.

Task #5: Finding Costume Inspiration.

    1. The Costumer's Guide is one of my guilty pleasures. I jusify it as research, but sometimes it sucks as much time as it saves!

  2. Love the Costume inspiration site. But, like you, somehow I don't think that will fall under the "Time Savers" category! :p

  3. I'm such a word geek, I'd spend too much time on with the Etymology Dictionary!

    1. The Bookshelf Muse (#4) is fabulous. They actually just came out with a book, The Emotion Thesaurus, compiling a lot of their best info.
