Mellel, TextMate, and paper (ah, paper!)
Authored by: terceiro on Dec 06, '06 01:00:30PM

The only virtue of Microsoft Word is its ubiquity. I used to think that Word haters were nuts, but after using Mellel for a major academic project, I have now come to see Word as the Worst Possible Option for Writing on the Mac. I do use Excel pretty often, though, and so I have no plans to rip Office off my machine.

Most of my writing is done in TextMate due to the absolutely wonderful "Edit In TextMate..." input manager thingie. Working in TextMate is so fast, so rock-solid, so unfroofy that I get more done in less time writing there -- real, generative, prose writing -- than anywhere else. Well, anywhere else that's not a yellow legal pad which, as all real writers know, is what God probably used for the first draft of the Bible.

Agreed - the 'Edit in TextMate' function is fabulous - I use it for any blog post more than a few lines. And the blog constitutes most of my writing these days.
