Helpful Resources (formerly Helpful Resources and Sites until September 2019, and Helpful Orgs and Sites before that) is a NaNoWriMo forum for discussing useful writing links and tools Wrimos have found. Some of the most popular threads include Write or Die and other writerly tools. Occasionally participants will post links to their own personal sites; these should generally be posted in Classifieds. Similarly, posts about software belong in Software & Tech. Various social media site threads also lived here before gaining their own forum in 2015.
Helpful Resources is one of the original forums introduced in 2002. By 2005 its forum description was changed again and remained the same for ten years before a small addition in 2015.
As of September 2019, Helpful Resources is a top-level forum and contains four subforums: Software & Tech, Soundtracks & Music, Social Media, and Artisans. Before September 2019, Helpful Resources lived in the Resources & Writing Support forum category.
