@eylul I use vim for writing :) Though because I tend to max out my 500 chars, I wouldn't have space for an extra tag.

@eylul Thank you for this post; I learned about a lot of new free software! Don't forget about , which lets you make sheet music. github.com/musescore/MuseScore

@eylul I like this idea!

When I do creative writing I usually just use #orgmode , since I can smash together outlining and note taking and everything all at once.

Also I think at this point, org-mode and glitch music might be the two closest things I have to a religion :)

@Azure would love to hear more about how you use orgmode for sketching at some point. :)

@Azure @eylul Thanks for pointing out #orgmode. Didn't know that. I ususally take notes for my #dissertation with #Zettelkasten. But switching to #emacs seems to be hard for a #vim and #Atom user, just to use org.

@K_REY_C @xldrkp @eylul Oh, yes. I /also/ use evil-mode. It is amusing when someone comes over to to modify a file I'm editing and yells, "Azure, why does nothing you use ever WORK NORMALLY?"

@xldrkp @Azure @eylul

I don't think it's hard to switch. I use #vim for programming, and #emacs + #orgmode for everything else, with the default keybindings, because evil doesn't cut it for me.

It's a question of habit I suppose.

@eylul What about #writers who use #FOSS tools like Vim, Emacs, LibreOffice, etc? Should they use #artwithopensource too?

@starbreaker yep! if you are posting your fiction as a VERY long thread directly to mastodon, maybe consider tagging once/twice by chapter or story, rather than each one but yes writing is welcome. :)

@eylul I think I'll probably share my fiction via links instead, but thanks for the advice. :)

@eylul Wait, I can post about my Twine game and tag it as art with open source? That feels like cheating!

@cidney why would that be cheating? and yes you can. :)

@eylul Also considering adding Ink (an open-source plain text scripting language for game narratives) to the list of #FLOSS tools for gamedev. inklestudios.com/ink/

#FOSS #designedWithOpenSource #artWithOpenSource

@Pedro I hadn't thought of it that way, but I guess it is. It is unfortunately missing several programs (mostly due to char limit :D)
