Drafts. While it’s a very simple feature, it’s unbelievably useful. The ability to put together half-thoughts while they’re going through your mind and return to them later to write a sensible post can dramatically improve your quality of writing. I’ve already done this a number of times and currently have 3 drafts lying in wait.
Now before you go picking through by blog pointing out all of the problems with my writing, please keep in mind that I said that it could improve your writing I also don’t use it all the time. For example, this post is being written all at once. There’s no particular rhyme or reason to when I use drafts, but I do use it on a regular basis.
If you haven’t yet used the Save button next to the Publish button, give it a try. Your drafts will show up at the top of the page under both Write and Manage. It’s one of those great features that you just don’t notice, all good software is full of them.
