Write This Way

dog being stroked - standing absorbed in the pleasure of it.

Who knows the pleasure of a dog being stroked – standing absorbed in the pleasure of it.

Suddenly there is a proliferation of applications with which to write.

Refly describes itself as an editor for content marketers, bloggers and authors that helps you avoid grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes. It’s Mac only.

Telegraph is web based and it is so minimal that someone is bound to like it. Here is my post, entitled Published

Write As is another web-based offering and describes itself as

A writing platform
Write.as is built for productivity. It’s simple enough for you to concentrate on your thoughts, and powerful enough to support the most prolific writer.

Write once, publish everywhere
Write for yourself, or share a post with someone. Publish to a Write.as blog and any of these platforms (Medium, Tumblr, Twitter) where your audience already waits.

Private by default
Express yourself without worrying about who’s watching. You can publish without signing up, and even if you do, we limit what data we keep about you.

Draft is web based and has features that will be of real use to some people – as opposed to things that are nice to have but not that essential.

When you share your document using Draft, any changes your collaborator makes are on their own copy of the document, and you get to accept or ignore each individual change they make.

And you can see the changes on the screen with a side-by-side view.

Hackpad, owned by Dropbox, is somewhat similar to Draft. Check it out and see what can be done with it.
