Writing skills are an incredibly important part of being a good communicator – which lets you get your message across to a larger audience.

Nowadays, anyone can be an independent journalist, blogger, writer, or even author of a self-published book, but what is it that makes certain writing stand out from the rest? What types of tools to accomplished writers use to hone in on their craft?

In this post, we'll take a look at 5 writing tools to help you become a better, more productive writer.

1. Writefull

Writefull is an app that provides feedback on your writing by using an algorithm to check your text against databases of correct language. It can be used in any writing tool – from MS Word, to Gmail, and more.

2. Hemingway Editor

Hemingway is an app that cuts the dead weight from your writing. It highlights wordy sentences in yellow and more egregious ones in red – which helps you write powerful sentences and paragraphs. 

3. Paragraphs for Mac

Paragraphs is a minimal writing app built built for one thing and one thing only: writing. It gives you everything you need to create brilliant prose and does away with the rest.

4. Flowstate

Flowstate is one of my favourite writing apps. It is a response to the amphetanminic digital age, born out of ancient writing disciplines. It frees the writer to turn on, tune in, and block out. If you stop writing, all of your work disappears! 

5. GitBook

GitBook makes writing easy. As a modern publishing toolchain, GitBook makes both writing and collaboration easy.
