Creating content for the web isn’t easy, especially when there are so many tempting distractions. Hence it is important that a web writer is familiar with some tools of the trade that help in enhancing his productivity as a writer.
Following is a list of 5 tools which I think should be present in every writer’s toolbox. With the exception of the last one, they’re particularly suited for online writing
1. Dark Room for Windows and WriteRoom for Mac
2. Windows Live Writer
Windows Live Writer is undoubtedly the best desktop blogging client available. None of the other such tools, even its Mac counterparts, come close.
Writing web content generally involves a good bit of research. Evernote helps in capturing and organizing notes, images, links etc so that you can quickly access them when you are doing the actual writing.
Freemind is a free mind mapping software to help you generate ideas and document your thought process.
5. Pen and Paper
It’s surprising how underrated pen and paper have become in this era of laptops, cellphones and iPad. But when you are stuck with a thought, disconnecting from the computer and turning to these two tools could be the best bet to get your creative juices flowing.
