My writing workflow is fairly simple.
I start out generally writing it down in my physical journal (if the idea comes up in my devotions or I am at home) but if I am on the go I just create a txt file and jot it down there so I don’t forget it.

When Writing at Home

Once I am home and ready to write, ~I open up my FocusWriter program and start typing away. I love it because….~

I now use Ghost Writer.

  • it is simple
  • shows a example of the end product
  • fast
  • distraction free

When Writing Away

If I am traveling for my secular job, I write just using my phone and a built in text editor. Or just open up a simple notepad.

Editing After First Rough Draft

I will say that my writings stay in this phase for a long time. I have a tendency to keep re-editing, expanding, shrinking, adding, subtracting…phew… I think you get the idea. I have written a lot but most never get published due to me probably being too critical of myself. It is something I am trying to work on.

Final Formatting

After I have written and edited my words, I then start the process of formatting and getting it ready in markdown. For this I currently use Notepad++ ( I now use Ghost Writer as my main formatting tool). You could use VSCode, iAWriter, and a host of other markdown editors. I prefer just free and simple programs. I then add the multimedia (if there is any) and update any links I might want to add (external websites, verse links, etc).

And that is about it. Super simple and not a very complex system. I generally do an outline and go from there but sometimes I just start writing to see where the words take me.

Thanks for reading!
