My 10-Years Refined Writing Workflow
Frictionless Writing & Publishing Workflow
The best writing workflow should allow you to jump quickly to the writing mindset and jump off once it is over.
I am not a prolific writer, yet I did write plenty in the last decade. Enough to call myself a ‘writer’ who writes for the fun of sharing and writing.
I am writing online since 2007 when I was in my college days. My writing started with Notepad, then moved to WordPress (editor), and eventually touched and tried almost all the options under the sun.
My writing workflow got refined every time and has become a well-defined process. That means I only worry about writing not about how, where, and with what. The content changes, but the process is the same.
I recently shared how I write and publish to my blogs and Medium.

It works for me flawlessly every time like a second nature. All I need to do is jump in, start writing, write my mind as my thought flows, hit publish and get out.
No support for Substack
Unfortunately, publishing to Substack is not so frictionless, if you try to publish your writing from external editors like Ulysses or AIwrtier.
Unlike other platforms which just publish the content, Substack sends them as mail (thousands of mail). So it is not a good idea to give control to external apps/services. But I wish Substack allows least to import writing from 3rd party apps as a draft.
Hope we’ll get Substack API soon.
