Writer Lists

Nice app!!))

Was skeptical, but proves very handy!

I wasnt entirely convinced the reviews were honest, but as a very quick go to, it certainly helps keep me focused when I hit a brief block when creating characters or possible scenarios. One other reviewer said it wont write for you, which is true, but the randomizer really helps add some flavor to whatever it is you are working on, so long as you utilize it in tandem with your own creative process.

Both inspiring and informative.

This app features various lists, some of which can serve as prompts and inspiration, or can be used to flesh out a character that has already been created. Whether you use these lists to create a new concept or expand upon older ideas, it is useful and excellent for any writer. I find myself using this app frequently.

Very useful

Helps the writer flesh out all aspects of his piece.

Writing Possibilities are Endless!

The possibilities with this app are endless! Youll never be the same writer again! I suggest this to all writers!!! :)

This app is FANTASTIC!

Or should I say "fantabulous" or "marvelous"? So many words to choose from! I write ALL the time, but I often find myself reaching for a thesaurus because Im tired of using the same old word. Lists for Writers solves that problem and then some. I also used to spend hours searching for names - enough that my search history looked like I was trying to name a baby - which I no longer have to do. This app is a lifesaver and a timesaver!

Super helpful

This helped me so much in my writing. There are so many lists with so much information. This is the cure to writers block! 5 stars all the way!
