Resources like dictionaries and thesauri are as individual as the writers who own them. Some writers use multiple resources and can't even imagine starting to write without being surrounded by their nearest and dearest. Other writers only pick one up when they're looking for a specific word or are stuck on a particularly unrelenting language pothole.
I recently queried people from two Facebook groups and asked which resources they couldn't live without. Here are their responses with the most mentioned resources listed first. Maybe you'll find something on this list to help your writing journey. Let us know which resources are your personal favorites.
