Writerly Tech: the hardware, the software and the why. Episode 356

Sarina explores her favorite writer technology!

We’ll admit it. We like our writerly gear. We get a little rush from visiting our favorite Vermont stationery store together. (In fact, we just did this last week.) But in all seriousness, we spend a lot of time on this job, so it’s good to figure out what works for us.

Today Sarina takes us through her novel-writing tech stack. She covers hardware, software and the “why” behind the tools she chooses. 

Links for some of Sarina’s tech: 


Keychron K series Keyboard

Inexpensive ergonomic mouse

Campus binders with removable pages and extra paper

Remarkable 2

Otter.ai app
