For most of us, writing comes natural. We learn how it's done from the moment we're old enough to sit at a desk and trace letters with a big red pencil. And it's pretty much just a written version of the language that we speak everyday. Somewhere along the line, however, we tend to lose that natural ability. And what was once a "fun" or "easy" school lesson turns into sheer dread the minute we're asked to arrange those letters into something original -- something substantial -- substantial meaningful.
Reasons vary and are honestly too expansive to address here. But whatever happens between that time, it's enough to encourage some people to disregard it altogether. As a result, writing skills decline. They decline so much that the "art" of writing is on it's way to becoming a "lost" art. And what's really unfortunate is that with today's technology, there really haven't been any efforts to preserve it.
Well, that is, except for First Draft.
The Art?- of Writing?
To understand what's at stake, you have to know what "art" is in writing. The "art" of anything, actually, is the intelligent and creative approach to something. It doesn't matter what that something is. That's why we have the "art" of cooking, the "art" of electronics, etc. It addresses the most minute details of a process and then builds some rather fantastic philosophies around those details. It's also what makes things meaningful. So this isn't anything that anyone should ever disregard.
Unfortunately, its preservation is largely being ignored in the automated content generation industry. And it's what separates First Draft from the bulk of available options.
Yes, It Matters, and It's In First Draft
Because the content inside First Draft was built with the "art" of writing in mind, it's more than the typical text editor or content generator. From day one, it was approached with writing's rules, principles, and even creative allowances in mind. That's why every single thing that it creates makes 100% absolute sense.
There are many reasons why this is so important. But in short, the main one is that preserving this art makes the difference between a failure to communicate and a trusted readership. Should you be a freelance writer, it could also make the difference between earning minimum wages and earning the income of a college graduate.
So if this is important to you (and it should be), here are six ways First Draft helps to make that difference:
Feel free to ask any questions if you have them. My goal in developing this software has always been to facilitate writers with high-quality, well-written drafts. It was never to insult them with anything less.
