There’s quite a few Alexa skills available for the writing process. These types of skills are particularly useful for school goers, but are also a great companion when the writing process sometimes hits a brick wall.
A new skill called My Thesaurus has to be one of the best of the bunch. You ask My Thesaurus for words related to, or synonyms for, a certain word and Alexa will deliver a list of potential candidates. For example, when I ask for another word for ‘smart’ the Alexa skill comes back with 39 synonyms. When asked for another word for ‘helpful’ she comes back with 26. Alexa then rattles the list off so you can capture just the word you want.
