I wanted to list a few of the things that I use when writing.
Microsoft Word. The flexibility of this program works perfectly for me. However, I have never tried any of the other writing programs out there, so I might be a little biased.
My laptop. I like laptops for the ability to write anywhere. Granted I have limited battery power when not near an outlet, but that can be a good thing in that it sets a determined time for me to write and I use it to keep my focus.
A thesaurus. I like to use varying words for the same thing. My added spice.
Dictionary. Word has spell check, but still it misses words sometimes.
So these are my basic tools for writing. What are some of your favorite tools?
