I just published a new post over at Tweak Your Biz called 10 Killer Writing Tools That Will Get The Job Done. I wrote this post as a follow on from one of my first posts on this site: Top 5 Writing Applications.
You can use any of these tools to write a blog post, an article, an academic paper or even a book.
As great as digital writing tools are, writing on a computer can feel confining. The blink of the cursor and the lure of other distractions such as email, social media or the internet can place boundaries around creativity.
Computers can make for more productive writing, but there is no such thing as the perfect writing tool. Just as a bad tradesman blames his or her tools when they botch a job, a bad writer blames his or her tools when they can’t accomplish something on the page.
If you’re having problems working a piece out, try writing for 30 minutes with pen and paper before returning to your computer. I’ve found this method forces me to write slower and stay with a thought for longer.
Find and use what works, and accept it in all its imperfections.
