Writing Tools on the Go

A friend and fellow writer posted a tip on how to capture ideas, or continue your work in progress, when you are out and about. Carrying a small notebook or index cards can help you capture those ideas before they are lost to the wind.

But what do you do when you forget everything but your smartphone?

If you have an iPhone, there are several apps that can capture those ideas, such as Notes, To Dos, Evernote, and yes, even sending an email to yourself can suffice.

What if you wanted something more? What if you could capture an idea and begin writing a first draft, in the same app?

Then I would recommend Story Skeleton.

It’s a story mapping tool that helps keep your thoughts and ideas organized. Want to continue a work in progress?  Importing and Exporting via Dropbox is a cinch.  You can also send via email.

And the best part? You can export your file in 6 different formats, like .Rtf, .Txt, and even .Scriv. Yes, you can export file into the Scrivener extension.

Give it a try. You may never forget another writing idea again.
