Materials Writing does have a creative side, believe it or not. You do have to come up with stories and topics and fake names and website addresses. I’ve been slowly accumulating places where I like to go to find fake names or topics or sample dialogues to follow.
- Fictional Universities and Colleges Just a fun list of famous fictional universities and colleges. Easily changeable by adding a North, South or New to the end.
- Anagram Maker A fun way to take a well-known word or brand and turn it into something new. PS My name anagrams to Laws Burnt On!
- List of Names and Meanings A place to find names.
- Foreign Names on About.com A google search that takes you to about.com sites on different foreign names in case you need a typical Chinese or Muslim or French name.
- University of British Columbia student news on Youtube Great source of student friendly topics.
- Shaun Roundy on Youtube An English professor with a good source of student friendly writing advice and actually a couple of recorded classes for authentic conversation and interaction.
