Quit your text processor

Are you a writer? What about not using a text processor to write your text? Read on, I promise it will make sense :)

There’s a nice article about text-only writing at Linux.com. Three tools are mentioned to substitute the big memory-hungry Office processor:

  • A text editor – Vi
  • A formatting tool – txt2tags
  • A spell checker – Aspell

Check it out! Minimalist tools for writers by Dmitri Popov.

For more detailed information, read the Writing Books with Txt2tags document.

  1. Aspell is not needed. Vim 7.0 has spellchecking built-in.
