5 Apps That Can Improve Your Writing Skills

As a writer, if you want to get better, the biggest thing you can do is to keep writing. The more you write, the more consistent you become, and the better a writer you’ll be. Having a great writing environment is a huge part of that, but the biggest thing is to keep writing. Here are 5 apps that can help you do just that, and improve your writing skills.

Scrivener

Scrivener

      WordPress

      Wordpress

        One of the best ways to keep writing is to start a blog. There’s a lot of blogging options out there, but the best long-term option is WordPress. WordPress powers almost 20% of the internet (including LifeHack!) Getting your words out there and posting on a regular basis is a simple way to ensure that you’ll be publishing — over and over and over again — which is really the only difference between writers and people who want to be writers!

          If you’re writing online (using WordPress or something else), you’ll have to deal with formatting. You can do it manually or you can do it via html — both of which are a little time-consuming. iaWriter bypasses this by using a markup language called “markdown” to format the posts for html. With a few specific formatting markups while writing, iaWriter will automatically format your posts for html, which saves tons of time down the road.

          While there’s a bit of a learning curve to start with the markdown language, once you get the hang of it, it can speed up your overall writing, editing, formatting and publishing process. Keep in mind that this is mostly useful for sites where you’re writing online. If you’re focused on offline projects, then the other apps in this list will be more useful.

          Google Docs

            If you write, you need an editor. There are lots of collaboration tools out there, but none simpler than Google Docs. You can share and collaborate with countless others, track changes and see updates in real time. If you need to work with a few people remotely and don’t want to deal with tracking 20 different versions of documents scattered around your hard drive — get Google Docs, start collaborating there, and be done with it.
