Grammarly


Grammarly Logo
We love Grammarly for everything writing-related. It is a grammar and spell check extension you can add to your browser, Microsoft® Office, OS X, or Windows to check nearly anything you type. We can’t say enough great things about Grammarly, especially because it’s free and incredibly robust. You don’t need to pair it with any other spell checker or app because it is that good. You can add words to the dictionary, see stats of your writing and error ratios, and so much more. You won’t regret downloading it.

Stephen King’s On Writing


Even if you’re not all that interested in writing, this book is an excellent read. King is such an amazing writer that he could make any boring topic enthralling – and this book is no different. Get excellent writing pointers from one of the greats, and learn more about him as a person in the process.
