re: writing

Here are a few things I’ve been reading. They cluster around the topic of writing, which — for whatever reason — I’ve been thinking about recently:

  • OmmWriter is a new Mac-based tool for writers that Guan/Bec recommended.
  • Still on OmmWriter, Rands shares his experimentation with it.¬†And makes some great observations about distractions and your workspace (underlining what I’d already discovered about the all-round awesomeness of TextEdit for Mac).
  • Feeling stuck is a pretty universal experience for any writer. This post has a bunch of helpful tips for getting traction and generating momentum. I’m sure it’s more widely applicable too.
  • And Natalie drew my attention to this list of resources that promise to help you get under way. It includes the fabulous Bird by Bird (of course).
