Simple, unambiguous, clutter-free writing made easy for anyone. Hemingway is a godsend for people like me that, completely unintentionally, wax poetic about stuff that can be said in a few words.
I started using Hemingway from it's first iteration. First for my uni assignments and since then I've used it for almost everything. Slide decks, presentations, social posts, campaign copy, you name it. I even used it for this review! haha
- Draft is a fantastic tool for collaboration. Share your writing privately with a friend and they can directly suggest edits which appear as diffs (you can visualize what they removed or added as you do in GitHub). It's helped me become a better writer. You can also pay professional copy editors to review your writing, directly from the web app.

I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.
Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.
- Every time I try and move away from this, I get pulled back in. I have features that I'd love baked in, and a cleaner interface/UX I'd love to see. But a few things get me back here. You mentioned a "network" of creators, and everyone I know has a Google account. So friction is removed there. There's versioning and commenting. Everything else, despite how much I want it, becomes secondary when I'm working with others.
