Giving GoogleDocs a second chance.
My husband has always been a huge supporter of using GoogleDocs, and I have always been skeptic. There’s something about writing in your own program and having everything just where you like it. I’m possessive, I admit.
I tried writing in GoogleDocs a few times, and was always put off by myriad formatting issues. I can tolerate lots of clunkiness in the way of a word processor, but if it can’t do a handful of things I toss it out entirely.
Well, I’ve been contemplating novel storage, and as a backup, I’ve been importing stuff into GoogleDocs. Then I decided to give it another try, just to see.
And I must say I’m impressed. Not only is it significantly cleaner than it used to be, but it also allows for a full-screen version, getting rid of just about all other distractions. Granted it’s not as distraction canceling as Scrivener’s full screen mode, but it’s a huge improvement, and actually makes writing on it feasible for me.
I don’t think it’ll entirely replace my current writing program, especially when it comes to editing large works and outlining, but it’s certainly viable for day-to-day writing. Kinda neat.
Anyone out there love/hate/meh GoogleDocs?
