As a result you can easily stick to meters and create lines with rhymes and rhythms that don’t sound forced.

On the right, you get a constant stream of words that rhyme with the word you’ve currently typed. This gives you a plethora of options to craft your next line.
Clicking on the Word Explorer tab at the top, you are taken to the entire database created around that particular word, which includes definitions, rhyming words, words nearest in meaning to that word, words which fit into a similar type, synonyms, antonyms, etc.
You also get helpful links to Google, Dictionary.com or Wikipedia, if the database of the program fails to satisfy you.

Besides this you get a choice of nearly 50 online dictionaries to dig for information on your particular word through the Online Lookup tab.
