"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe. ~ Abraham Lincoln.
It's often been said, you're only as good as your tools. And even though a keen mind and an even keener pen (or computer these days) are still the main tools of a writer or blogger in 2018, there are others out there.
Which is the problem. How do you know which to use?
If you tried them all, you'd never write or publish a thing. And if you ignored them all, well, that's not a smart move either. The serious writer or blogger of today needs to know where the advantages are, what the competition is using.
And there's no point in sharpening an axe if it's a bandsaw you need.
Which is why we here at Write to Done have put together this resource for the serious writer or blogger. To lead you safely through the minefield of tools out there.
The Write To Done team have included all their favorites, many of which they use on a daily basis. The list is not exhaustive, we'll add to it as we go.
If you have a favorite tool not listed here, add it in the comments and if we can, we'll get hold of it and give it a test run. If it measures up, we'll add it to the next update.
In the meantime help your fellow writers and bloggers and share this resource around.
