Here are some of my favorite sites:
- Springhole.net – There’s a portion of this site with useful writing tips I have used in the past, and random generators that have helped me find ideas.
- TV Tropes – A wiki dedicated to documenting and playing with the various tropes used in fiction. Warning: this site is extremely addictive.
- Deviantart – An artist’s community. I have gotten many good ideas while browsing the art posted there. I also post some of my works to my own account there, and I have a separate alt account for my papercrafting.
- Wikis – Wikis related to existing fictional universes have always fascinated me, and given me a new perspective on these series, which I feel has ultimately inspired me in my writing. Such wikis include Memory Alpha and Fringepedia.
- WordPress – My blog’s host.
- Dafont – A site for free fonts. I got the font used in the title image from here: Underwood Champion by Vic Fieger.
- Lost and taken – A site for free textures, including the one I used for the title image.
- Webtreats – Free textures and stock images. They’re where I got the space image for the background from (or more specifically, I got it from their Flickr page).
- Paint.net – The art program I used for the title image and other images.
- GOG.com – The only downloadable game store I trust completely.
- Humble Bundle – Great pay-what-you-want deals, mostly on gaming, but they also have regular eBook/audiobook deals.
- The Ur-Quan Masters – Star Control 2 is the best, most underrated space game ever. A free and legal version is available here, or get the HD version here.
