Writer Tech Tips

I’ve been grateful every time a fellow author shows me a new tip, so when I spot something neat, I try and return the favor. Below are a few blog posts writers might find useful. 

My author toolkit consists of the following

  • ProWritingAid desktop version (integrates with Scrivener and I swear by it!)
  • Evernote for notes and reference materials along with Captio (for quick notes on my phone when Evernote would take too long). 
  • Canva for graphics paired with Fotor (extra photo editing if needed).
