In the past two or three decades, Technology — which has become a merging of many things — has changed almost every aspect of human life. Writing isn’t an exception either. Just go back to 1980s and you can see hundreds of thousands of paper sheets being wasted every day — until writers reach the perfect draft for a book, essay or anything. Today, since almost everything has been digitalized, that’s a story for the memories of retro. Nonetheless, that’s not the only way technology and gadgets have improved our writing experience. In this article, we take a look at some of the prominent aspects.
#1 Dedicated Writing Solutions
Be it a Windows PC, Mac or an Android, you have dedicated writing solutions nowadays. There are free tools that let you write in a better manner. For instance, there is a tool named Vellum — available for Mac — that let you write eBooks with complete ease. Similarly, there are many tools that offer dedicated interfaces for writing content like novels, poems, articles, blog posts and academia content. So, apart from saving a huge-enough number of paper sheets every day, technology has made it possible to write easily but effectively of course.
#2 Better Writing
We talked about dedicated writing solutions, right? Well, we should also talk about how these tools can have an impact on your writing skills. Almost all these tools have an in-built grammar checker and suggestions. It lets you have on-time notifications when you are writing. After using these tools for quite some time, you’ll understand that your grammar and syntax skills have improved. It’s a brand-new way to learn as well. So, it should be noted that the technology upgrades can also impact what you write and how well you write. As it goes without saying, this has helped thousands of writers across the globe.
#3 Better Opportunity
You can take any sector and say without doubt that technology has enhanced the opportunities even while making things simpler. For instance, let’s consider CustomWritings.com, which is a provider of writings under different categories. It means that customers now have an easy way to get the writings they want. It would also mean that writers now have easy ways to earn more revenue. Even if you are a freelance writer, you’d be able to publish your content in global publications and keep earning. In fact, the pervasive nature of the technological world has also lead to a new type of writing, like the ones for blogs.
#4 Writing On-The-Go
On-The-Go Writing has been one of the best things that has happened. In the past 15 years or so, there has been a rise of mobile devices, which you can take and roam around. It has also led to a new culture that can be aptly called the on-the-go writing culture. For the common writer, it means that you don’t have to sit in front of a large desktop to write what you love. In fact, there are even some cooler smartphone applications that offer seamless writing interfaces and features. The next time you want to write an awesome poem, you can be anywhere in this world.
#5 Easy Publishing
This might sound quite ambiguous but we are now living in a world where anyone can publish content. And, technology is where all the credits are due. In the past decade, we have seen the rise of writers who would have otherwise left unknown by the world. Of course, we should consider the impact of blogs, social media and many other platforms that have made online publishing easier. At the end of the day, it means a number of people are writing and writing.
So, these are some ways how technology and associated gadgets have improved our writing, in the past few years. If you think there is something we left out, let us know via comments.
