Ulysses

The app I use to write all my Medium articles in. As well as writing notes for different books I read.

All your writing in one place is the motto and the underlying design of the app. I hook up my wiki as an external folder and I love how it creates an index of everything that I can search over:

It also has pretty awesome export functions that let you export the text you write to PDF, ePub and HTML. I mostly use it's ability to export text to Medium.

I use New Wave 80s theme in dark more when I write. Here is how it looks:

I describe my thoughts and approach to writing here.

Content structure

I group my writing into appropriate categories. Here are how my categories look like.

I use two Alfred file filters to search through both Ulysses sheets and Ulysses groups.

Writing an article

I start writing all my artciles by jotting down notes as dashed points below the title. Here is how that looks:

I then start writing the article and try to touch on one or all of these points as I write the article. I add/remove points as I write the article.

Publishing the article

Once I wrote the article that I am quite happy with. I export the article straight to Medium with Ulysses Medium export function. I then reread the article again in Medium's editor and fix any styling issues/mistakes that happened. After that I publish the article and share it on Twitter and other internet places.
