Writing Tips from Evernote Users
My writing students are using Evernote to organize evidence for research papers. No more index cards! Tagging makes keeping track of evidence topics a snap. Notebooks organize writing assignments or subjects, and working on Evernote gives students the ability to save pictures and hyperlinks of each source. — Becki M.
All ideas go into Evernote almost right away. This way, I don’t lose any of my ideas and I can cull through them at a later date. This is especially helpful when I’m in the middle of writing. — Elizabeth P.
Here’s my process: I write an outline in a single note. Starting at the top, I create a New Note for each main item in the outline. That’s where the real writing takes place. As each section takes form, I link to its note from the pertinent line in the outline. It’s exciting to see the outline as the blue hyperlinks start to take over the page. — Dave S.
I write all my university assignments in Evernote. All my references are tagged and stored in a notebook. I then use links within Evernote so I can quickly find what I referenced from the assignment essay. — Peter H.
Evernote is perfect for researching for essays. Simply clip and tag articles and come back to read and cite when the time is right. I also use it for workflow to keep track of writing assignments and specs with Reminders flagged for deadlines. Plus, with the new Post-it® Notes feature, I can brainstorm on my favorite Post-it® Note color then tag them with “ideas” for inspiration later. So it’s great for creativity as well as organization. — Carey B.
Evernote is great for character sketches. I can add details, stock photos and links to resources that help me shape my protagonist and other characters. — Ericka C.

My story ideas are notes. When I pick one to write, I start a notebook. Always give your stories a place to grow.
