I graduate soon and would love - LOVE - to write a novel or script. Does anyone have any particular writing resources, software, or communities they enjoy using and would like to recommend? Are there any other writers here that want to talk about the craft?

Oh, or blogging places, too! I guess Neocities is good for that? I wouldn't know, I've never had a blog, but I used to read them a lot when I was a teenager.

I don't write super seriously but I've started keeping a thesaurus on hand which seems to be really useful. It really helps for when you're trying to finish off a sentence and that last word is on the tip of your tongue but you can't quite figure it out. It feels great to just page through the book too haha

I use Joplin for everything, from grocery lists to scripts. Markdown is great as it allows to format text on the fly.
I think writing communities are just a time sink. Find people interested in anything but writing to enrich yourself, read good books that you actually want to finish, and do the writing part alone.

I've been using the fact that my universities closed to work on a draft of the thesis I'm supposed to be working on. It keeps me occupied and focused.

(Extremely) amateur writer here. I write mostly as a fun side thing, but rn I'm helping a friend with a novel he's working on.

Some guides I like to refer to every now and then:

Haha I feel that. Quarantine's giving little excuse to slack off on writing.
