Writing Tools

  • Scrivener – the program I use to write with. I don’t think I could put together a full book without it and I hope I never have to.
  • Learn Scrivener Fast – Scrivener is a big program. While you don’t need to know everything to be able to use it, the more you know, the more you can do with it. Joseph Michael offers a wonderful training program to learn to use Scrivener. Be sure to join his mailing list because he does free mini-trainings regularly.

Editing Tools

  • Grammarly
  • Pro Writing Aid

Email Tools

  • MailerLite
  • MailChimp

Website Tools

  • Hosting – Name Hero – the hosting I use for CreativelySustainable.com. I have not had many problems, and the few I have had were quickly solved with tech support. Highly recommend.
  • WordPress.org – this is the self-hosted version, which means you have complete control over your website.
  • WordPress Theme – Astra – the theme I use for CreativelySustainable.com. Michelle Phillips at Codefetti has a great series of video tutorials to get you started using Astra.
  • Domain – GoDaddy
  • Domain – NameCheap
