First Draft Gives Writers Even More Tools To Quicken Content Development
Plus New Users Get a $20 Gift Card Just For Trying Some of Them
By: Nicole Miller
According to the developer, Nicole Miller, "The addition of the planner was provided for date-conscious writers, and it gives them easy access to event-driven topics. It answers the question of not only what to write, but also when to write it." The software makes it just as easy to find related writing jobs as it is to write about them too. "This way," Nicole continued, "writers can make content relevant to a day's events and get paid for it in one fell swoop. Or they can, at the very least, plan to."
Other additions to the software include the ability to summarize existing material. And that's not just from one file. First Draft also summarizes material from multiple files. There's a growing list of over 170 content blocks (pre-written paragraphs) available as well. These individual blocks of content quicken the writing process with 3 – 4 sentences of pre-written text that can be inserted with a single click. Topics range from company announcements to personal reflections, and, of course, writers have the opportunity to add their own content to this database as well.
Over a hundred (100) shortcuts have also been added to the program, plus a palette of options that personalizes First Draft even more than before. Through these options, writers can configure the way the software looks; the way it generates content; and the way it starts- opens- saves- and edits files. Improvements to existing functions include a content update in all non-fiction content modules, improved response times, and improved documentation.
Writers who are new to First Draft can try the software for free and get a $20 gift certificate after leaving a review. Nicole adds, "Feedback is critical to how the software evolves, and as a way to say thanks to everyone who contributes, Capterra is giving away $20 gift certificates that can be used at Amazon, Starbucks, or anywhere that accepts Visa. No purchase required."
