There are many useful writing tools. It starts with the more than a million words in the English language. One of the things that writing electronically does is allow you to use search to look once again at what you have written. You can even assess the statistics to discover what your reader’s interests are. Search can make sure information relating to specific topics can all be collected together. It isn’t always accurate, but even the search oddities can be of interest.
Reason to Recap Useful Writing Tools
There are many tools used for writing, what it is my intention to do here is collect together some of the things that I have written about both here and in other places. All have one thing in common, they are tools for writing or may aid your publicity efforts as a writer. The idea being, to provide a way to produce a quick reference guide for the writer, who is interested in extending their knowledge in any of the areas covered here. Not many words will be added, just enough to guide the curious.
This is an area I have made a mental note to write more about in the future. That said other sections also include tools which are used to enhance writing.

At some future time I intend to review how readability tools function and how they can be used to improve your use of language and how to understand the innate quirks of how they test your writing. Today I am still testing Grammarly, Scribbens, and Hemingway to see the advantage they offer the writer.
Pictures, in my mind, are an essential presentation tool that writers need to use more of. The can act on the subconscious while the reader continues reading the words used. We all know the old adage that a picture paints a thousand words. Not all paint a thousand words, but they do offer a setting for the words that you use. Diagrams enhance complex articles and stop them from becoming boring.

One of the stated aims of GobbledeGoox is to offer thoughts on writing. This is an urge I have to suppress, especially when I moderate on a general writing site and see some truly awful submissions. One lesson I have learned is that it is best not to criticise when you see errors, but it is possible to learn from them.
We all make mistakes from time to time, the ones that annoy me the most are those that creep up on you, typos, and when your finger fails to make contact with the key, leaving words short an “s” or a “v”. Writing required conscious effort all the time.
