This blog is now defunct, but you can find more stuff over at my personal site

Useful Stuff: Writing

Sites wot I sometimes turn to when writing:
Dictionary and thesaurus. rhyming dictionary
Apparently nothing rhymes with ‘dictionary’.
Guardian Unlimited: Style Guide
Full of quirky details and the occasional cartoon.
The Economist: Style Guide
Clearly structured (rather than just an A–Z of miscellaneous points).
Get It Write: Tip Archive
Lots more finger-wagging advice.
Lorem Ipsum Generator
More traditional than my Text Generator.


"Apparently nothing rhymes with ‘dictionary’."

Must not be a very good rhyming dictionary, I can think of a bunch off the top of my head. Big and hairy, the tooth fairy, guy named Larry, etc.
