If you want to write then you will do that. It doesn’t matter the tools you have access to – physical notebook and pen, laptop or typewriter.
Yes, some might be easier for you. But a writer writes with the difficult tools too. The art of writing stems from practice of writing and you do despite the difficult condition.
But if you have access to different things then you force yourself to write on tough things.
Thanks to internet, now you can find many different writing platforms, combinations and make the most from your writing experience. And for me, it had done wonders. For example, I write most of my blog post on Google docs and I couldn’t imagine anything else which would fuel my typing hands.
It works so well that it feels like I am taking a shortcut. And that’s why I want to share it with you so you can focus on your writing and take it to the next level.
The number thing for me is the Google docs. It is so white that I feel compelled to write something. Couple that with the ‘Nunito -Semi bold font’, it pleases my eyes as I type words. And as such, I keep on writing without any distraction.
Although medium advertises as a publishing platform for everyone with less hassle. I love them for the writing experience it provide. Their writing interface is beautiful it makes your writing looks big, beautiful and worthy. Since, I publish some articles on medium too, I can say it is a beautiful writing tool.
Another publishing platform which helps established bloggers to easily set up patron support has a beautiful writing interface too.
I signed up for them and although I don’t write their often because of other issues – their writing tool is a superb one with minimal extras. And as such, I sometimes write my drafts in them.
When I started writing, it was in a physical book. And then I transitioned into the online world. I used to write on Google’s blogspot platform. After writing for so many years, I upgraded myself to WordPress platform.
And after many iterations, I finally settled on Google docs version. For you, it can be totally different and it’s okay.
The gist is – although being a writer you can write on anything – why not use the available resource and make most of your writing journey.
Go and find your comfortable place so that you write more, free flowing ideas come in and your level of writing goes up.
