Resources for NaPoWriMo 2016


Here are some resources that might be useful I knocked together:

The Official NaPoWriMo Blog:
NaPoWriMo.net

A few different writing prompt blogs/prompt generators in case the NaPoWriMo ones don't take your fancy:
writingprompts.tumblr.com
wonderfulwritingprompts.tumblr.com
creativity-portal.com - imagination.prompt

A random word generator that can also be used for prompts:
textfixer.com

Rhyming dictionaries:
rhymezone.com
hymer.com

A few Thesauruses (although if you can get hold of it I recommend Roget's Thesaurus):
thesaurus.com
collinsdictionary.com
macmillandictionary.com

A few inspirational videos:
Poets vs. Prose writers
Patti Smith: Advice for the young

Good playlists/albums to write to:
Sigur Ros
Earth (this is my favourite album, but Hibernaculum and Hex are good too)
Hawkwind (Chronicle of the Black Sword is also very good)

How-to's for various poetry forms (I also recommend the books Adventures In Form, and The Ode Less Travelled):
Villanelle (and alternative guide)
Sonnet (and another alternative guide)
Sestina
Haiku (an intersting site for haikus) and Tanka (alternative guide)
