This is a collection of links, tools and information that I myself have found useful over the years or I developed to make things easier for other writers. Perhaps, you might find some of this useful yourself.
I keep a list of all the agents and publishersI have submitted my novel(s) to in my submission tracking software, WriteTrack. I built up this database over the years by doing a lot of research online and by finding and combining the contact details from many different websites. Of course, given that I write science fiction, most of these agents and publishers are also for the same genre. However, I felt that this list could prove to be useful for others too. So instead of doing the same legwork again, you can benefit from my work :)
My wife does NaNoWriMo every year and she loves the little progressbar that they provide while a contestant is writing their novel during the month of November. However, the progressbar is there only during the month of November and she misses it during the rest of the year :) So she asked me if I would create a program/utility for her where she could always have a progressbar for different writing projects that she was doing at any given time. This is the result. The page does require registration but it will allow you to add as many writing projects as you want, to track the progress for each project individually and then have a progressbar for each of those projects that you can display on your site, blog, e-mail signature or even forum signature. And yes, it's totally free!
These are Microsoft Word 2007 macros that I developed to make certain writing tasks easier. They should work on previous versions of Word as well but since I currently use Word 2007, that's the version that I know for a fact that they work in :)
Here are a few writing related tools that I've developed over the years:
