I Stumbled across this innovative tool to help overcome writer’s block today and wanted to share it with you. It’s called, “911 Writer’s Block,” from WEBook.com, and it’s geared toward fiction writers, but even if you don’t write fiction, you’ll get such a kick out of it that your mojo will bounce right back. It looks like this:
It’s as easy to use as it looks. Click a button according to your needs. Stuck for a character? Let Peg inspire you:
Dial “5” to commiserate (quotes to help you feel a little less…alone). Dial “3” for dramatic entrances, and when you’ve had enough, dial “8” to kill your character off.
Katie Krum, of WEBook, says,
WEbook is an online community for writers and readers alike. Our goal is to help improve the writing of aspiring authors by allowing them to share their work and receive feedback in a variety of ways. So, whether authors are looking to tweak their skills, find a literary agent, or enter their manuscript into PageToFame, our innovative writing competition, WEbook is the place to be.
911 Writer’s Block is one of our writing tools that’s meant to help authors punch through those occasional freeze-ups. The interface offers quick suggestions on everything from picking a setting to killing off a character. It’s fun, and it can really bail writers out when the idea-faucet dries up.
WEBook also has a forum for real, live writer’s block recovery support. So if “911 Writer’s Block” doesn’t quite do the trick, head on over to the forum for some human interaction.
