Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) June 01, 2009 -- Canadian writer and web site manager Rowdy Rhodes of the Freelance Writing Organization - Int'l (FWO) has astounded the writing resource world by creating the first ever tool bar specifically for writers. Completely compatible with both IE7 and FF browsers, the Instant Writing Resources Tool Bar (IWR) provides full access to the thousands of writing resources hosted by the FWO all with a single click of a button. The software is being released as freeware for any and all that might be interested in or currently making a living at writing.
Mr. Rhodes seized upon the opportunity when he came across an online community service system, Conduit, which provides the core engine for the tool bar and the ability to custom design a bar for the FWO. This is turn became the launch pad for IWR as it blasts off into cyberspace.
Brian Wilson, owner of the FWO, comments: "We live in an age when individuals are strapped for time due to work and family commitments, and this can often stifle creativity. Mr. Rhodes is a great example of adapting to this environment and providing a tool that will assist writers, journalists, authors, playwrights, and wordsmiths in general. He has not only been creative with accessing our system resources through the use of the IWR, he has also provided entertainment value by adding in online chat rooms, games, a radio station for writers, and a number of other fabulous options. I'm really very pleased to have Mr. Rhodes on our team, extremely impressed with the Instant Writing Resource Tool Bar and proud to be able to participate in its success."
By thinking like a writer and combining his online experience, Mr. Rhodes divided the tool bar into the four most important areas that writers need instant access to:
1) How-to write resources (which the FWO has specialized in providing since 1999),
2) An employment search system linking a variety of providers together,
3) A library of Amazon books about learning how to write,
4) A socializing, entertainment area and even a Writers Radio plus much, much more.
The tool bar took him 7 weeks to create.
Mr. Rhodes says: "Finding reliable writing resources is a difficult task these days. Everyone and his brother are touting they are writers or want to become writers. The jump in the need for how-to-write resources provides an opportunity for us to give back to the community something (the Instant Writing Resource Tool Bar) that is invaluable."
The IWR is freeware without malware, spyware, or adware. It is simply what it claims to be; it's a fast, reliable access tool to thousands of high quality writing resources. Web Managers are welcome to use the freeware as an incentive or give-a-way on their sites.
