Below is a list of tools that I have created and use to write my own stories. Since I am an engineer, I like to call this my writer’s toolkit. As such, use whatever you find in here as you believe is best to fit your style.
As a writer, I am still discovering and experimenting to understand where I am in the spectrum between a “discovery writer” and an “outliner”. I don’t use all of them all the time but I pick and choose according to where I feel I need structure. I suggest you do the same – don’t stick to a process, make the process stick to you.
What does the toolkit include?
During my travel of self-exploration to understand my own process, I have collected quite a lot of “tools” that I have now decided to share here.
You’ll see that there is quite a lot from novel planning, to setting, characters, and even a goal tracker. As I come up with new stuff, I will attach it below so that you can benefit from it too.
So here it is, this is my writer’s toolkit. I hope it will be useful to you and your writing as much as it has been for me. I would really love to hear your ideas, so feel free to ping me in case you want to let me know what you have been doing with it or if you feel there is anything that can be improved or can be added to the toolkit.
Don’t stop writing and exploring your style and your process, but most of all, don’t stop having fun.
Keep playing with your words!
