The huge variety of tools and resources available that can be useful to a writer just starting his or her freelance career can be overwhelming.
The choice is so great that sometimes you just don’t know which tool to add to your writer’s toolkit first. This post should help with that problem.

That’s what we’re going to examine in this post.
