Websites For Writers-Wednesday Prompts and Inspirations

chalkboard-3-AToday for my Wednesday prompts and inspirations, I’d like to share four of my favorite, free, writer-helping websites.

The Wednesday before last, I mentioned onomatopoeia as a great writer’s tool. Onomatopoeia refers to the sounds people make when they laugh, drink, yell, as well as other human sounds. Onomatopoeia also covers the sounds of cars, any movement, liquid spilling, Halloween sounds, musical sounds, and so much more. Wouldn’t it be great if a website existed where you could do such a search?

Here you go! The onomatopoeia dictionary!
