Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 15, 2013 10:13 PM

StoryToolz provides seven resources to help authors. 

* The Story Idea Generator "picks a random conflict from each of the Internet Public Library's list of 7 plots, 20 plots, and 36 plots."

* Random Conflicts combines "the Internet Public Library's list of 7 plots, 20 plots, and 36 plots" and "randomly presents 10."

* Word Count Meters allows you to keep track of and share your progress.

* Readability - This tool analyzes your text. It will tell you the reading level (based on a number of different indexes); sentence information, including the number of characters, words, paragraphs and more; word usage; and sentence beginnings (type of word). 

* Half Title Generator - Select from a list of beginnings and then for ends of a title and see what comes up!

* Example Word Count Meters - show actual word counts of existing projects as well as the goal

* Cliche Buster - Reviews your text and lets you know if it finds any cliches.

This tool would most likely work best with students in middle school, high school and college. Students might also use it as a tool to check their story before having a peer edit the story.

StoryToolz is a nice ensemble of useful tools for writers. Writers who are struggling to come up with ideas for their prose will like the story starters - random idea generators for plots, conflicts and titles. StoryToolz also provides tools that will analyse your work, identify clichés in your writing, and evaluate its readability.
