The Writer’s Toolbox – Fictionary for Fiction Writers

I’ve been looking at an app called Fictionary. Has anyone that follows me used it or heard of it? Or do you have any other recommendations for fiction writing? I am thinking of signing up to their two-week trial to see how it works.

I signed up to the free trial and I am going to use examples of my writing to see how this tool works for fiction writers. I dabble in short story writing and fan fiction so I’d like to see how this app can tighten up my writing and whether or not it’s even something fiction writers should be considering for their manuscripts.

I also jumped onto the ProWritingAid bandwagon not so long ago and I’ve been really enjoying this app. It has a lot of bells and whistles but it is extremely useful for showing you where you need to work on grammar, spelling and style in general for any type of writing. I actually found Fictionary because it can come bundled with ProWritingAid.

If you have any suggestions for tools, please let me know in the comments as I am keen to try new things! Also for all the poetry writers out there, I think you can use Fictionary for poetry as well but I’ll confirm that once I’ve had time to use it.

Until my next post, stay safe, keep writing and I’ll catch you later

Six-Word Story Series: Movie Taglines #1

I’ve discovered that some movie taglines make amazing six-word stories!

If you’ve never created a six-word story before, you should definitely give it a try! It is a lot of fun coming up with something that has enough “meat” on its bones to tell a story or at least allude to something more, something bigger.

While thinking about six-word stories, I was posting a general movie news post about Anne Rice and The Vampire Chronicles and I read the movie poster’s tagline which I never really noticed before:

“Drink from me, and live forever”…

This is an amazing six-word story! While the words obviously point to some sort of supernatural vampire-related plot, the words are chosen so well that you just want to know more. It draws you in and I think that’s what six-word stories should do. In fact, that is what any good story should do.

What do you think? Have you seen any other movie taglines with six words that packed a punch and made you take notice of the film even more?

Let me know in the comments!
