Writing: Practical tools part 1

18 Aug

Lately I’ve been trying out Yarny. Yarny is an online writing tool. So far, I think it’s very useful. You can set a word count, write and arrange chapters, save snippets (characters, places, and things) and it automatically saves your work regularly.


I think it is very practical, user-friendly and intuitive. You only have to create a free account to get started. There’s also a pro-account (with a monthly fee) but there’s nothing I miss in the free version so far. You can also easily export your text, but so far only as a .txt file (maybe a minor drawback) and there is also some support if you want to publish your work immediately as an e-book (though I haven’t tried out that feature yet and can’t tell you more about it).

To sum things up…

Pro:

-word count

-intuitive usage

-flexible use of snippets and chapters

-free version after registration

-automatic saving feature

Contra:

-export to .txt only

-only works while you have internet access
