So this is a test blog entry to see if Ulysses is synched up to my blog. I’ve not been blogging much, but as I recently withdrew a bit from Twitter and Facebook in order to finish a novel and wrap up another really cool freelance project, I started to think about ways to optimize my own eco-system.
Once a year or so I get the bug to get this all running again. So we shall see if this lasts. But at the very least it’s a neat trick.
What is Ulysses you ask? It’s a pretty interesting Scrivener competitor that uses Markdown. Which has honestly kept me away from it for a while. But it syncs between iPad, iPhone, and laptop so seamlessly I am playing with it for the next month to see if I can move some of my writing over to it that would benefit from that. Like my short stories, which I often come up with ideas for on my iPad. It would be nice to be able to skip a couple organizing steps I usually go through.
Anyway, here we are testing to see if I was able to upload a picture:
What’s your favorite piece of writing related software? It feels like we are in a golden age of neat tools and solutions for creatives. A far cry from when I wrote most of Crystal Rain in Text Editor, each chapter an RTF file!
