Great writing environment

Nucvarian

I am a casual writer. I like to write, and I like to write in markdown, so I don't need anything super flashy in a markdown text editor. My previous favorite editor was Ulysses, but their recent business practices left a bad taste in my mouth, so I went on the market to look for a replacement. I tried a LOT of different text editors. And many are very good. But Byword is really, really great. It’s very simple and straightforward, and it lets me write the way I want to write. Just simple flat text files that I can imbed pictures in for my journaling. That’s all I want, and Byword does this for me wonderfully. I also like that I can change the editor font to what I want. One of the big contenders I was considering didn’t let me do that, and that was the deciding factor in favor of Byword.
So I am now a happy markdown text journal writer again! Just so long as Byword never becomes subscription-based, I will be a happy customer.

Just what I have been needing

My writing has been scattered all over the place - Pages, documents, cloud - and I am completely disorganized in trying to get them together in one place. Then along comes Byword and I can write so easily, title it and keep it on the Byword app. I think. My problem is that Byword is part of Pages and the ‘Cloud’ thing and I would like it as a separate icon on my side bar so that I can open it without going into Pages. Any idea if this can be done? I thought I could go through the other places and put all scattered writings into the Byword but not sure I can because I moved one but it moved out again and back into the Cloud, As a writer, I don’t spend too much time using by beloved Mac for other things but this is one thing I would like to get straightened out. Any help out there?

Clean Interface Makes Me A Better Writer

I have been working on improving my writing by trying to write 500 words each day. I have use a variety of word processors (Word, Pages, etc..) and they each have their niche. When I discovered Byword, it was like a gateway to creativity had opened. The minimalist interface was a joy to work in. Nothing to distract me from my writing, just me and a blank “piece” of paper. I love it.

Having used it for close to a year now, I really have come to rely on it’s simplicity. I feel like I write faster and better because there are less distractions. When I have to use Word it just kills me. I feel like the screen is screaming at me to look at all the “shiny” buttons. It has become my go-to writing tool.
