Why You Should Write Your Drafts in a Text Editor

Especially compared to word processors or any other writing tool or app. With a text editor, there are few (generally no) formatting options.

What does that mean? You can focus on words. You don’t need to worry about formatting, where to put images, any of that. You write first, and add all the ornaments later.

Great advice, as usual, from Scott Nesbitt. His site, The Plain Text Project, is a must-read.
