About the Writer’s Blocks Blog

Welcome to the Writer’s Blocks Blog.  Here you’ll find posts about using Writer’s Blocks to write stories, books, movies, articles, and academic papers.

If you are familiar with any popular word processing program, you’ll be an expert Writer’s Blocks user in no time. Most users spend less than 15 minutes learning the major differences between Writer’s Blocks and standard word processing programs. While Writer’s Blocks is full of features, the heart of the program is the visual outlining benefits of the movable, sizeable blocks. If you’ve ever had to take notes on index cards and spread them on a table to organize them, then you understand Writer’s Blocks.

Organize, Organize!

Columns are available to help you organize your blocks. Columns and blocks have titles that you can edit. There is a separate footnote area in each block that you can optionally use. Not sure where to put a block? There is a place for those blocks, too (the neutral area). You can easily search your blocks, customize the look of blocks, connect blocks with links and arrows, and much more.

What Do I Do With My Blocks When I’m Done?

Writer’s Blocks has a built-in word processor so that you can output what you have written in a linear way. The text in each block becomes a paragraph and the footnotes (if you used them) are used to create endnotes. You can view your manuscript alongside your blocks and each block is linked with its corresponding paragraph. You can continue tweaking what you have written or export to your favorite word processing program. From our basic word processor you can print, spell check and create headers and footers but if you are ready to do more complicated functions like creating indexes and table of contents then you’ll want to export.
