From the average person’s point of view, writing is an easy thing to do. Such prejudices arise in almost any intellectual profession; writers are no exception. Yet it is still one of the most difficult professions in the world.
Let’s put writers and playwrights together conditionally: there are very few good ones. How many movies have you seen lately with beautiful visuals? And how many with a great, deep story? I have a suspicion that the ratio is at best 10 to 1. People have learned how to make good graphics, write good music, and portray great actors, but the situation with dramaturgy is unchanged.
Because of this, writers and playwrights need essay helper from the outside. Here are a few apps to help you with your writing.
The Brain Stormer
A paid app is available for Android and iOS. What it does. Breaks the creative exhaustion and maybe even cures it on a long-term basis. It’s fun to use because the app has a fun design and thoughtfulness: you just spin a drum, and the app randomly selects a story, theme, environment, or style for you. You can use the built-in reels as well as come up with completely new scenarios and developments. A very simple app with great potential that not only writers can use.
Many people these days lack time management skills, but it’s easy to instill them in yourself with this app. You simply set a timer for 25 minutes for a specific task (in our case, it’s writing). During it, you can not get distracted, and if this happens, it is assigned a penalty. At the end of 25 minutes, you can rest for 5 minutes, then go back into action.
The app is based on the tomato method (very famous in the field of time management) and is considered by many to be very convenient and efficiency-enhancing.
Remember: if you write every day, it will become a part of you.
A free iOS app that helps you figure out the publishing business with the help of literary agent Laurie Abkemeyer. She shares her tips, from negotiating a contract to creating an effective letter to a publisher.
The publishing industry is complex, and any knowledge of it can help the aspiring writer. Abckermeier gives good advice on a wide range of topics.
This app (and browser extension) was created to immerse you in the writing process fully. You won’t find anything distracting in it, just the bare minimum of tools you need. If you’re going to find writer’s flow somewhere, it’s in this app.
There are only two fonts to choose from, and that, too, is fundamental to this app: it shouldn’t be a difficult choice.
This platform gives you the freedom to write texts online but completely anonymously. It’s very similar to CalmlyWriter and can help you immerse yourself in your personal experiences.
Sometimes the biggest annoyance can be the text editor itself, with all its optional buttons and options. Ilys, like the previous two apps, offers only the necessary functionality.
On the Ilys site, you can set a word count goal and enter text directly into the box, one character at a time. The program’s point is that you cannot see your text as a whole but only a separate block of it. It dramatically changes the writing experience and makes you treat text more consciously. Plus, you can’t go back and edit what you’ve written. Thus, the platform kills your inner critic and censor.
This one-person app and platform allow you to set a goal and see it achieved visually. We advise you to use the browser version, which has many more features.
All your goals are presented in the form of a large concentric pie chart that allows you to enter your goals, set their size based on importance, and track them by dragging a slider. This will all be very useful to writers who need to keep a lot of information and goals in their heads.
Write or Die
This is one of the most relentless writing apps you can find because it will start deleting your work if you don’t meet the pace of text entry that you yourself set in the app.
Artificial limits have been known to work. And it’s worth setting the tempo, and your brain starts working differently because it has nowhere else to go. It can come up with a lot more ideas than it normally would. The app considers rewards, so you’ll be happy after you finish the work.
We wish you the best of luck!
