  1. You rightly mention Mendeley for grad students but I would recommend Zotero instead. I found it easier to use on many levels. It just seems more polished.

  2. ZenWriter is also a pretty nice one. it can play music. in the background and it has a noise every time you type like an old typewriter, which makes it fun to use. it also takes up the whole screen and minimized distraction that way. I don't use it much, but it's a nice app.

  3. I like using Stayfocusd. Its an app that allows you to block certain websites that you know you waste too much time on. For example, I set mine to allow 15 minutes for browsing Youtube, Facebook and Twitter. After the that time the app blocks access to these websites until after 5 pm. And I set it so I have the freedom to browse on weekends. I need this app because I'm an extreme procrastinator >__<

  4. Thank you! I like using myWriteClub. Basically there is a writing sprint every half an hour and you write alongside other people around the world and you can see their word counts updating live. At the end of the sprint you see how many words everyone wrote and how many words you contributed to the over all tally. You can also make a private sprint with a group of your friends and use the chat function if you're working on a joint project for example. And like Nanowrimo, you can set a goal (eg. 20,000 words in May etc.) and keep track of it with a graph.

  5. Hi Thomas, how were you able to publish/print the book that you wrote? I have a short story I want to print out. Thank you.
