WRITING GUIDE

USING MODERN TECHNOLOGY

TO WRITE DOWN YOUR THOUGHTS

AND RECORD YOUR DREAMS

 

The power of a single idea can change the world, or shake the very foundations of an empire to its core.

This is why it is so important for today's creative and artistically minded people to bring their ideas to the world,

beyond the restrictions of money.

Our guide below contains ideas for how to do this.

Many of these programs can be used on phones, tablets and computers.

 

USE YOUR COMPUTER, TABLET OR PHONE

We have listed programs below for the computer, tablet and phone (iOS or Android).

Most of the apps and programs we have mentioned can be used on an tablet or phone.

Much of what you can do on a computer, you can also do on your phone or tablet.
 

It is possible to attach a mouse and keyboard to your Android phone.

And a keyboard to your iPhone or iPad.  (Cannot use mouse.)
