A Master List

This is a master list, or round-up, of all the resources I would recommend looking into. Below, you will find planner printables and printables to help you stay organized. You'll also find mental health resources, including help lines and screening tests. If you're interested, there is also a creative writing section for my fellow authors.

Mental Health
Resources

I know how hard it is to reach out when you suffer from any mental illness. This page is intended to give you the resources you can use to try and help yourself. I am always looking for resources to add to this page, so if you know of any I haven't included, please make sure to get in touch!

Websites

The websites we recommend usually consist of both information and worksheets. I feel it is important to have worksheets to keep yourself on track.












Apps (For Android!)

I know there are a lot of mental health apps on the market, but not all of them are going to be helpful. I'm are only sharing the apps that I personally found useful.

Daylio is one of my favorite mood-tracking applications. It allows you the ability to customize your own moods and activities. This means you can track exactly what YOU want to track, not just the typical tracking stuff. It's great because it's basically a planner journal on-the-go. It works offline so you can always access your history and input new logs. The app is also free to use unless you want bonus features or the ads removed. - Ali

Replika is a conversation bot that is fairly useful. It's limited in depth, but it can help if you're bored and just need a distraction from your own thoughts. Alternatively, you can use this application as a responsive journal. The bot asks questions about your day plans, goals, and even personality. Occasionally, you'll get notified of a new token or personality trait the AI has associated with you. This can help you to unlock more of yourself as well. Check it out. It's free of charge.


Vent is an app that allows you to share thoughts, similar to Twitter. Except, it's aimed at struggling individuals like yourself. Users can comment and give you support. This helps you to feel less alone and less hopeless. You can also chat in private with other users if you'd like. It's definitely worth checking out. It's free and a great resource.

Blogs I Recommend

These blogs are run by people who know how it feels to struggle. You may be able to find inspiration.

Positively Present has adorable graphics designed by the founder, with inspiring sayings and an amazing collection of posts to encourage and inspire you. If you're the type who enjoys reading a book, she has many for you to choose from!

Creative Writing
Resources

The first resource I'm going to share is my go-to, no matter what I'm looking for. E. A. Deverell has dozens of worksheets that you can download and use to build any size story. Sign up to the mailing list and start building your master piece. Click the link above or on the image below to head over:


Think Written; Tips, prompts, and ways to make money with your writing!

My Vocabulary; Word lists for everything you can think of - essential addition to any writers toolbox.

Write Smarter, Not Harder; Great for character development, complete with worksheets.

Now Novel;  Tools to get you writing RIGHT NOW.

Writers Digest; Education, resources, tools, and even communities to help you be the best writer you can be.

Well-Storied;  Free courses and workshops, plus a blog with many helpful tips.

Spring Hole;  Although it's primarily a role playing name generator, there are many great options that writers can take advantage of.

Make A Living Writing; If you want to make money through your writing, this is where you need to go.

Random Word Generator; There are just too many generators on this site to list, but they are all useful beyond expression. From names to random words and even sentences, you can generate exactly what you're missing.

Inkitt Writers Blog; Articles & advice for the writer of any skill level.

Apps (For Android!)

Note Everything; Allows you to write text notes & record audio notes. The best part about this note app is that you can easily export the text notes onto your phone.

Writing Exercises; This is a generator that can give you sentences, character descriptions, subjects & plots. You can generate at random & save your favorites for reference later on. I really like the character one. It helps when you're in need of a background character.

Writer Tools; This is a great resources for tracking your progress. You can create a project, choosing time frames & goal words. You can also create custom lists, for resources like the ones listed here.

Loffee; This is a lo-fi background noise app. There are dozens out there, but this is one of my favorites. There isn't an endless selection of music, but the playlists are simple and get the job done. I put this on when I need to tune out the outside world, but not get distracted by my music.

I also recommend downloading an offline Thesaurus - You never know when it may come in handy!
