These are a personal choice of mine and what I actually use when writing.

It is going to be structured in such a way that there is a part of the actual writing process and then publishing & marketing.

Let’s just jump right into it.

1. Editor

This is the most basic thing that you should choose when starting to write something. Whether that is Microsoft Word, LibreOffice Writer, Google Docs, Medium’s Editor (which is the best in my opinion because there are so many features built-in that you should be using especially for Medium) or anything else, you are supposed to be comfortable with using any of those.

It does not really matter as long as you write and put your work out there!

2. Headline checker

I always start from the headline, just because then I can stay in the niche and focus on the thing I am writing about. Some people think of the headline after the fact, but that is okay too.

This tool is very dear to me and I use it every time. It is called CoSchedule Headline Analyzer and it is really easy and interactive for users.

You just have to type the Headline you had in mind and the tool will analyze the headline for you.

It is based on the category and strength of words, the number of them and also the number of characters.

It will also give you tips and a list of words from different categories.

Headlines 55 characters or 6 words long tend to earn the highest number of click-throughs.

There are so many more useful tips in that Analyzer you would be impressed so check it out next time you write something.
