This week’s Coaching Connection question comes from Kristine and our topic will be writing software. Let’s get started!

 

 

Kristine,

Thank you so much for your question; it’s a good one!

 

Two writing software applications I use daily and recommend are Google Docs and Grammarly.

 

It does depend on what type of writing you’re doing, but for articles/blogs, those are the two I recommend. Deanna spoke about using Scrivener if you are thinking of writing a book.

 

Google Docs

I have written about Google Docs before because I can’t begin to tell you what a difference it has made in my career! I am often running around with my kids and my laptop, or if I am at work, I can always log into Google. It is an excellent platform because you can do pretty much anything you can do in Word, minus a few technical things. What’s also cool is that you can collaborate with your team on it. If you are having a meeting, everyone can write into the doc at the same time. Really cool. Also, many clients like Google Docs because it is compatible with every system.

 

Grammarly

I love Grammarly because it is an inexpensive option to help with my grammar, sentence structure, and voice. I was a nurse before I was a writer; therefore, my grammar is never 100%. I like to write in a conversational tone, which sometimes isn’t the best to read. Grammarly is nice because you can integrate it into your browser and use it for email (and everything else) as well!

 

I hope you try those tools, Kristine. Let me know if there is anything out there that you have tried and love.

She quickly became a breastfeeding resource nurse and certified CPR instructor. In 2007, she took a position in a higher acuity facility in the Cleveland, Ohio area. There she worked postpartum and labor and delivery. She became the assistant manager and educated new nurses, developed educational content, and managed other labor and delivery specifications.
