The 5 Best Tablets For Writers in 2020

While most writers prefer a full-size keyboard for their day-to-day work, that’s no reason why a writer needs to sacrifice the portability and convenience of a tablet.

In fact, for writers who want or need to write wherever life takes them, whether they are in a café, on a train or airplane, in the office or on the beach, a tablet can be a fantastic way to take your work anywhere you need to go. 

Today’s tablets have many of the functions and features of laptops.

They can be fully-featured work machines for writers who need comfortable interfaces, fast research, comfortable typing, and intuitive multi-tasking — more than they need lightning-fast processors or huge amounts of onboard storage.

Here are some of the best tablets for writers:

The Ultimate List Of Tone Words

Tone Words FI

As a writer, you know how important it is to choose the right word for the meaning you’re trying to convey.

And part of that is knowing what tone words are and which one to use in a particular context. 

The wrong one is like an errant note in an otherwise flawless performance. Even if it has the same dictionary definition, it just doesn’t sound right. 

But where do you go to find the words with just the right tone and cadence to make the sentence flow as it should? 

Welcome to our ultimate list of tone words

175 Words to Describe Tone for Authors

Any tone words list (worth the time it takes to make it) should provide the fuller meaning of each word — i.e., not just the denotation (dictionary definition) but it’s connotations, too. 

For this tone words list, you’ll see each word explained with a short definition or with synonyms that have the same general tone.  

All you have to do is open a thesaurus to find synonyms for a particular word to realize that some of those words do NOT have the tone you’re looking for. Some are obviously negative. Some are positive. And the rest are more or less neutral. 

The tone word you need for the moment is the one that evokes the right emotions and that allows your sentence to flow without speed bumps.

37 Words To Describe Diction

When was the last time a reader asked you about the diction you’re using in your current work in progress?
