This is a cool workflow post. It’s a great time to be a writer, though. The tools are great. It’s more-than-viable to write a book using Linux/Unix/pretty-much-any-open-source-tool-you-want.
Writing a Book with Unix | Joe M.
I am aware that the computer can’t do the writing for me…But I’m for convenience, if I can write twice as much and the quality remains the same, then I prefer the computing. Writing is when I fly, writing is when I start fires.
