The system to write
Are you feeling lost on Medium?
When I began in February 2021, I did.
1.5 years later, I’m enjoying my entrepreneurial journey with Medium as my main income source.
Now, I have a robust and comprehensive writing system in place to keep track of my stories, gain deeper insights into my stats and analytics, archive my work, back up my email subscribers, and manage my tasks or to-dos.
Here’s my Write OS.
What’s Write OS
I run my writing system in Notion. Notion is an all-in-one productivity tool that’s free to use and infinitely capable.
It combines the powers of a to-do app, calendar, project management tool, writing app, database system, spreadsheet and word processor, and so much more.
And it’s free.
Inside of Notion, I write my Medium stories. It’s a brilliant writing tool.
I also create content for Substack, Vocal, NewsBreak, WordPress, my blog, and social media. Lastly, I keep track of my YouTube videos and digital product designs for Gumroad.
All in one app. Synced across my devices, accessible from phone, tablet, and desktop. For free.
Why am I telling you this
Write OS has been such a game changer for my full-time content creator business that I’ve decided to turn it into a digital product.
That means I’m going to release the full Write OS as a digital download on Gumroad very soon.
For all of you, Medium writers, who are looking for a robust and detailed management system for writing, this is perfect. Not just for Medium writers, though, anyone can benefit from this system. It’s made to be platform-independent.
But there’s more.
Write OS features
Write OS does not only include comprehensive Notion templates for writing, organizing, and archiving your work, it also features
a database to back up your email subscribers manually or automatically
a 7000-word e-book about writing and succeeding on Medium in 2022, with tips and tricks to get the best out of this platform.
a list of writing resources like apps, add-ons, extensions, and software to better the Medium experience
a list of reference articles about Medium and writing in general
You might not be using Notion. I get it.
I’ll strongly advise you to take a look into this powerful free tool, though.
For some it seems too complex, they might not know what to do with it. I get it. I had the same issue when I started using Notion a few years ago.
It’s easier than you think. The key is a good use case. For me, this use case was building a great writing system.
I quickly learned the basics. And now, I’m fairly deep into the advanced stuff you can do on Notion. I still have a lot to learn and discover, though. It’s fun.
Notion is great for writing. The editor is simple and straightforward. You can use Markdown to write which is fantastic. Then, you have all the metadata to add to your posts like tags, times and dates, URLs, complex formulas, and more.
Give it a shot! Organize your content in Notion.
The bottom line
I’m excited to share my Write OS with you very soon.
In the meantime, I already have a couple of free Notion templates for Medium writers and content creators available on Gumroad. Yes, completely free.
Check them out on Gumroad.
Have a few seconds left? It would mean the world to if you shared this post on your socials or with friends who’d be interested. It only takes you seconds, but it’s a huge deal for me. Thank you!
