Hi all,

Apologies if this is something previously discussed. I have been using FireFox with the program "StumbleUpon" quite a lot recently and find it a great way to discover some WWW gems. One of the topics you can choose to stumble includes writing and I've come across a few that people might find useful in reviewing or improving their writing.

The Passivator (A passive verb and Adverb flagger)

A Cliche finder
http://cliche.theinfo.org/

Hope people find it useful, or at least fun .

-W.

This page is quite useful from a research perspective, and done nicely as well:

Thanks Monk.

And thanks for telling me about StumbleUpon - first FF add-on I've used.

Beware! StumbleUpon is addictive and may cause loss of productivity. That said, you can find some really amazing websites or cool inspirational ideas as well.
