munchman: Want to Write/Collaborate in the Cloud?


Of course you do. Modern culture frowns on lone/lonely writers. Dissertations could, or should, be written on this change from the alienated writer to the social butterfly creative guy/gal and the effect that has on the work/product/piece of crap/genius that appears when all the toil is over–

But I digress. Let me start over:

I’m currently playing experimenting with a new app/proggy/whatever called Draft, which uses a minimalist interface for the writing bit and then allows you to…oh, wait, why should I sit here trying to think up the right words when Draft’s creator already has done this for me?

Welcome to Draft! Thank you very much for signing up.

Just to highlight two powerful things Draft can do:

First, use the “Share” buttons to send documents to your own collaborators. When your collaborator is done editing, you’ll get an email alert to accept or reject their changes using a view like this.

Second, if you need professional help editing a document, use the “Ask a Pro” buttons. For a very affordable price, you can get an extra pair of eyes helping you.

If you ever need anything, please let me know. I’ve got a lot of great features coming up, and would love to hear any thoughts you have on what you’d find useful.


You can close this window to get started.

Or to start a brand new document.

Or use the import button to import a text or Markdown document from your computer, Dropbox, Evernote, etc.

For my part, I, the munchman, will let you know whether I end up loving or hating this thing. (I know my feelings won’t be somewhere in the middle cuz, hey, they never are, as you regular motherfuckers readers already know.)

Meanwhile, I’m putting this out there for other takers. If you do give Draft a whirl, write in and let me know how it works out. Of course, if you disagree with me I’ll think you’re an asshat, but nobody takes my opinion seriously, right, cuz you know I never really mean what I say.
