8 Apps for Aspiring Novelists | Mac|Life

8 Apps for Aspiring Novelists | Mac|Life | inspiring | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"There's no perfect formula for crafting a novel. In fact, some of the best tales that withstand the tests of time are the ones that break the rules and invent a new narrative. The simplest of ideas can blow up into 100,000 words of masterfully crafted storytelling with proper development. While the words are the most important part of any novel, what is a craftsperson without his or her tools? We've collected eight apps that will help you turn aspirations into novelizations. These come just in time to join the scribbling scribes participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so grab them and embrace your craving to compose some prose."

Katherine Conner's curator insight, March 29, 2013 1:39 PM

Everyone, without exception, requires a tool to complete the task that they were employed to do. Often, when writing, people may not know where to begin. They may not have any idea as to how to organize their thoughts. The applications suggested by AJ Dellinger on Mac Life seem like an excellent way to structure not only the key points within your story, but also helps you structure your time in order to incorporate those key points. The application "Novel in 30" allows the user to set a word count target, and a deadline goal. It also allows you to sync the document between itunes and allows the use of Dropbox for easy access. "Writers App" helps structure all ideas dealing with plot, character, and setting. "MindNode"allows the user to create a literal map of their thoughts, and therefore allowing the user to re-create or continue their previous thought process at a later time. Other applications discussed in this article assist with research, brainstorming, timing, and even publication! I think these applications will prove to be powerful tools not only for aspiring novelists, but also authors who are veterans of the writing and publication processes. Each story that a person decides to tell is individual, so each journey to bring that story to an audience is just as individual.

3 Free (But Powerful) Presentation Tools For Teachers - Edudemic | inspiring | Scoop.it

Posted by Katie Lepi

 

"Teachers are presenters. Let’s be frank. They get up in front of a room of people and present. They then encourage the students to work together and continue the presentation through other methods. in other words, teachers need to know how to present and create slideshows. If you’ve been hunting around for a few free presentation tools for teachers, then you’re in luck.

 

"Here are three of our recommended tools for teachers, admins, students, and just about anyone looking to show up to class with a kick-butt set of informative slides."

 

Animoto, Knovio, and Zentation - each with a useful description of key features. -JL
