Writing Tools

 

 Writing

Scrivener is my go-to platform for writing. It’s the Swiss Army knife for writing, organizing, researching, and publishing. I consider it the ultimate organizational tool for writers. It allows you to comfortably view your notes, save research, easily create your outline, and to finally write, all in one place.

Microsoft Word is still the standard that that many writers use for word processing and copy creation. If I’m working collaboratively on a project with a client that uses it, then so do I. I love the  Microsoft Word Tracking feature. A great alternative to Word is Google Docs.

 Grammar

These days, if you’re an independent writer who doesn’t have ready access to an editor, you need Grammarly. Whether I’m working on a rough draft or putting the final polish in an article, Grammarly just works..

If you’re a fiction writer, then AutoCrit is a must. Not only do I get all the usual grammar and spelling checks, but I can tell the software what genre my writing is and get editorial recommendations as well.

 Research and Organization

Evernote helps you keep your ideas, notes, and research organized, quickly storing all of it as you find it. The tag, file, and folder system allows for speedy retrieval.

Dropbox is also great for securely centralizing all of your files in one place, which you can then sync across all your work platforms. It can be used in a team environment as well, providing access to designated group folders, while keeping all your personal folders and files separate.
