Do you have any difficulty making your writing clear, persuasive, and concise? Maybe you’ve found your work has some grammar issues, or that you simply have trouble organizing your thoughts. While practicing writing is always the best way to find improvement in your authorship, there is no reason to start at square one. In a similar way that simple graphic design apps like Canva.com have made it possible for more people to have access to quality graphics tools, there are a number of free writing applications that simply make the process of writing easier.
Wikibuy put together an informative infographic with a number of examples of the best apps they found that connect with distinct writing goals. Of course, the best writing application for you may not be immediately apparent. It’s possible that you will have to try a few things to see what you find works best for you. It may be necessary to assess your writing goals and then look for an app that helps you gain ground toward that goal.
The best way to share: Google docs from the Gsuite of Google writing products is a very useful application that allows you to connect with your work from any networked device and has the added bonus of allowing you to work simultaneously with many people on one piece, if necessary.
The best grammar check: Go beyond spell check with Grammarly. While the application also looks at spelling, it can find grammar and punctuation mistakes, as well as spot where you may have used the wrong word. While the basic application is free, a premium version can even look at genre-specific writing style to make sure you are following a good trajectory.
The best way to stay productive: Do you suffer from too many distractions to write cogently. An app called Anti-Social acts to cut out your social media and messaging apps to make sure you stay on task. It even has a customizable timer so you can be as productive as you like.
Check out the infographic below for even more free applications that will allow you to write more effectively, with greater productivity, and allow you to get more work done in a shorter span of time.
