Tools to use when you’re writing
Tools that are making your life easier when you are writing (for you, for a client or just because you can)
Most of my time is dedicated to social media and content marketing. Starting from blog articles, to e-mails or brochures, no matter the industry or the client, one just has to respect a few writing principles:
- Keep it short and simple — no matter who is reading, people do not have enough time to scroll more than a few minutes. Also, no matter the field, you have to explain everything as you would speak with your granny.
- Edit like a motherfucker (Tara Skurtu, a Romanian-American poet said that once, so I keep quote her)
- Don’t hyphen if you are not sure. It can be tricky.
- Too simple? Too obvious? It’s finished.
Anyway, the list can continue, but this is not the topic now. Back to the writing tools!
Fortunately, nowdays, we do not need only a typing machine and plenty of ideas to make a text happen. The internet is fast and full of resources. Here are some of them that you might like & use:
- Hemingway — Hemingway App makes your writing bold and clear.
- Grammarly — Finds & corrects mistakes of your writing.
- Medium — a community of readers and writers offering unique perspectives on ideas large and small. But I guess you already know this by now.
- ZenPen — The minimal writing tool of web.
- Liberio — Simple eBook creation and publishing right from Google Drive
- Story Wars — Writing stories together.
- Headline Analyzer — Emotional marketing value headline analyzer.
- Plagiarism checker: duplichecker.com, copyscape.com, plagscan.com, plagium.com, etc.
This is pretty much it. If you have any recommendations, shoot!
