Pancake publishing

Wherein writing tools get better.

I’m currently jazzed by the idea of full stack writing:

Hi is what we call a “full stack” writing and publishing platform. Just what is a writing stack? Capture. Write. Publish. is our summary of it, but really it breaks down into five parts:

  • Sudden inspiration!
  • Capture
  • Draft
  • Publish
  • Converse

Some platforms provide tools for parts of the stack. Hi gives you tools for the full stack.

All the pancakes.

Love the breakfast food metaphor! Hi’s tools and community integration seem pretty nifty. That said, the break down of inspire, capture, write, converse is what I can’t get out of my head. I don’t think you need special tools to approach it with that breakdown. WordPress, Jekyll, Medium, whatever. Always be writing, publish small ideas frequently (a thing I need to do more often!), develop the ideas that stick in your head or that lead to great conversations, repeat. Don’t let the layout of your blog template or the name of the tool limit your writing. It’s an easy mental trap to fall for!
