5 Ways Technology And Gadgets Can Improve Your Writing - by Kristin Savage by Jessica Barrah

Writing can be a complicated business – with so many ideas, plans and different drafts to keep organised. But these no longer need to be a jumble of papers, or even a list of confusingly labelled files. Guest blogger Kristin Savage outlines five ways technology can help you take control.







1. Brainstorming and Capturing Ideas

Brainstorming can be a great way to think of new ideas to write about. However, instead of trying to manage all your brilliant ideas on bits of paper, you could use a brainstorming app to capture it all in one place and ensure they aren’t lost.
One of the best and most popular apps to help you capture your ideas is Bubbl.us. This app helps you create visual diagrams of all your thoughts and ideas, creating trees with different levels and sub-levels. It’s easy to use and it ensures all your ideas are safely stored. It also allows you to share your ideas with others and come back to them whenever you want.


2. Organizing the Writing Process

When you have a lot going on and the deadlines are getting closer you can’t simply go with the flow and hope for the best. Organize your entire writing process and create a schedule to guide you to a successfully finished project.
Evernote is a great tool for organizing your thoughts, tasks, and goals.
Use this app to create a personalized To-do list and write down everything you need to achieve on a daily basis. You can set up reminders to ensure you actually keep your own promises. You can create voice reminders and capture images to ensure maximum productivity. Making a plan can work wonders for your writing process and help you stay on top of your game.


3. Accuracy in Writing

Errors in grammar or spelling can really detract from the power of your writing – but luckily there are lots of writing apps that can help you with this. Just copy your text and paste it one of the following apps, and it will highlight your errors and suggest corrections.

Grammarly
WhiteSmoke
Hemingway App


4. Digitalizing Your Thoughts

Inspiration can strike at any time – but you don’t always have your laptop with you. Jotting notes on paper can be a good alternative – but what happens if you lose your notebook, or that scrap of paper you’ve written on? A Smartpen allows you to take notes on paper and later transfer them on your computer, using nothing more than a USB. Its in-built memory can capture voice recordings and your handwriting, storing them instantly.


5.Tuning Out

When you’re creating your masterpiece, you’ll probably want peace and quiet – but if there are screaming children, a pneumatic drill outside your door, or just the noise of the coffee shop disturbing you, then pick up some noise-canceling headphones.
They create the perfect silence you need for focusing on your writing and avoiding distraction. It will increase your productivity and help you tune out completely.

All these tools help you focus on what matters most: your story.

    Thanks for sharing this post. I am very interested in this topic. I would like to share my opinion in this Start BBQ As with morning tea your may suppose that creating a day tea in your BBQ is hard, however its not. BBQ’s are excellent for creating completely spherical, completely cooked pikelets or pancakes. Massive hotplates not solely disperse warmth evenly but additionally have sufficient area to prepare dinner many pikelets or pancakes directly. Create your favorite batter then let your BBQ’s present you all how easy and simple making a yummy afternoon tea is.
