What are the best tools that can help improve creative writing?

While reading fictional stories definitely helps, I'm more interested in tools/products/apps that can improve the craft of creative writing. Are there any you've used which have helped you become a better creative writer?

    Make your content more easily readable. Paste your text into its free web app and it'll assess your writing and identify opportunities to make it simpler. First, it sums up how readable your writing is with a grade. Then, it suggests how to improve readability. PLUS this article (https://blog.hubspot.com/marketi...)

      I started using Hemingway from it's first iteration. First for my uni assignments and since then I've used it for almost everything. Slide decks, presentations, social posts, campaign copy, you name it. I even used it for this review! haha

      Simple, unambiguous, clutter-free writing made easy for anyone. Hemingway is a godsend for people like me that, completely unintentionally, wax poetic about stuff that can be said in a few words.

      When you use grammarly, they put some kind of advert for youtube, so when you watch youtube videos, it will stop and their advert will start. Note, this is not a youtube ad, this is an ad directly from them.

      The browser extension is a must have, but I regularly pass my emails through this, or draft them in it just to catch dumb mistakes and make noticeable grammar improvements on the fly

    I like the concept Jotterpad created with Snapshots. While you can hack together something like this in Google Docs, this is also designed for distraction-free creative writing.

    750 Words

    It's about writing, and getting into your brain

    Brain dumping - writing whatever in your head, here. Gamification makes it fun. 1 point for writing anything, 2 points for 750 words+, and more if you write consistently.
