    Excellent tool

    This is an excellent device for fleshing out characters and working through ideas. Writers block? What a great way to stimulate the thought process. I would definitely recommend this to my students. A must have for creative writers.

    I like this app.

    I like this app. However, I wish it had a little more to it. Being a writer myself, lists are a good form of inspiration. I just wished this had a little more bang for its buck. Just a slight more depth would make this app a must-have tool.

    App

    Great for writers of all kind. Worth the money, but I agree with the post that says it could be a little more.

    Just Not Enough

    This little app is a well organized referance, useful to a student. However, to an aspiring writer, the amount of information presented just falls shy of employable. As an app it's straight-forward in its display and purpose. It lacks one level of depth; expansion. You are presented with lists on different subjects and examples on areas of writing, but that is as far as it gets. No word on how or where each of these listed items is used or even defining their meaning (beyond
    definitions of obsesions or phobias).

    All in all, useful for a studyguide or quick refrence for seasoned writers. Not for those looking for an interactive guide to the art of writing.

    P.S.
    Please ignore spelling errors I missed. Writen on a tablet.

    Useful

    The app is exactly what the title states, a "list for writers". It is not a teaching a tool for aspiring writers but a compilation of terms, devices, nouns, definitions, and more for active writers. I find it great for working out character attributes, scenes, concepts and ideas, as well as breaking through writers block. This app is worth it for anyone searching for an ultimate writer's glossary.

    Creative writing list

    I would give it more because I have it on my old nook color and I love it so I bought it and it won't even open. It won't even show up in all my apps so I can try to archive it to get it to open. Either fix it on my new hd nook or I want my money back
