Toys and Tools

While nothing can replace the raw pleasure of touching pen directly to paper, the proper application of a well-designed friend can often accelerate the linguistic process for a writer.  Check out these implements that are designed especially with a writer’s comfort in mind.

Scrivener for Mac is an extremely flexible system that allows you to shuffle your content in a myriad of ways.  View your chapters as notecards on a corkboard, eliminate all distractions but the text, and save time with pre-established formatting.  Could you ask for anything more?

The Evernote System allows you to synch all your thoughts and notes across many different peripheral devices.  Like a swift smack to the backside, this enabling software never lets you go anywhere without forgetting who you are and what you are doing.

If you are reaching for Hollywood and beyond, Final Draft Script Writing Software is the industry standard that will take you there.  And if it helps you meet Matt Damon, you must give him my email–that’s my only finder’s fee.

More porn, please!
