From Writing Workflows: Beyond Word Processing by Tim Lockridge and Derek Van Ittersum

  • This workflow map depicts the roadblocks I encountered with various combinations of tools. First, I was not able to take advantage of version control features while using Word files. Next, I was not able to collaborate with co-authors while using Scrivener. Lastly, I have found that I can use the Atom text editor, along with the git version control system, to write with a co-author while meeting all of my technical and affective writing requirements.
