How fortunate we are to live and write in the digital age!
I often wonder how much more volume Trollope might have achieved if he’d been able to use a laptop, or whether Tolstoy might have enjoyed strolling around Yasnaya Polyana listening to audiobooks?
Don’t get me wrong — I embrace the power of writing — and indeed editing — longhand. I try to begin each serious writing session with the Morning Pages ritual advocated by Julia Cameron in her must-read work on creativity, The Artist’s Way. I have a significant hoarding issue with blank books — particularly the upscale kind from Il Papiro and Code&Quill—and I own more fountain pens than I’m comfortable revealing in this public forum.
But I also embrace the tech, and so should you! Online and computer technology have made it possible for writers to be both prolific, productive, and prolific!
Working from multiple homes and always on the move, I’ve come to rely upon these 11 apps and software programs to keep me nimble and mobile, certain of hitting my word count goals consistently!

Exploring food markets, developing recipes, and just eating was once my hobby, but now it is a full-time job. I write about food markets around the world, develop recipes, and study culinary history and emerging trends. I have a particular interest in Russian and Eastern European cuisine and culinary history.
I believe that great books are part of a life well lived and this extends to audio entertainment. Under the Lifestyle umbrella, I review books, podcasts, and audiobooks, I discuss writing and reading and am constantly on the lookout for new ways to be productive and clear all manner of clutter from my life.
