Text File Editor

A web app that allows you to create, edit, share and save text files to your device or to Google Drive as an editable Doc.

Create a new text file by clicking the + New Text File button below.

+ New Text File

A plain text editor that allows you to keep notes throughout the day, create a list, write or edit code without worrying about unwanted auto formatting.

Share a link to your text file through a unique url to a work colleague, a client or a friend through a simple url accessible to anyone with the url. Lock the file with a password.

Google Drive

Save your text file in Google Drive as a Doc rather than a TXT file. This allows you to save important files that are editable, rather than auto saving every file.

Copy & Paste

Copy & Paste text to and from Textdoc without formatting including unwanted characters. This allows you to clean up text before it's pasted in email or chat platforms.

All Platforms

Meant to be an alternative to Notepad (Windows), TXT (Chrome OS) and TextEdit (Mac OS), Textdoc is available on all platforms because it's a web app.

Open and edit all text based files including TXT, CSV, HTML, XML, CSS and JSON. This allows you to use Textdoc for all text files.

How to use Text Doc

Use Cases for Text Doc

Textdoc can be used as a casual notepad for keeping track of items throughout the day without taking up space on Drive or elsewhere. If the notes are deemed important, they can be saved to your Drive account as a Doc.

Remove Formatting.

Copying information from a website and pasting it directly in email usually results in the websites formatting coming along for the ride. Instead, paste the text in Textdoc first, then from Textdoc into email to strip out all of the formatting.

Draft Messages

Write a draft message before entering the text in a messaging platform that has a typing indicator or unwanted formatting. This allows you to edit and finalize your message outside of the platform before indicating you are working on a message in the platform.

Create or Edit Code

Copy and pasting code from one source to a communication platform like email or slack can change the format of the code. Use Textdoc to create or edit code and share it via a unique url without the format or characters changing.

Document Collaboration

Create forms or questionnaires to gather information from work colleagues or potential clients. Textdoc gives users a place to collaborate together in a quick and easy way. If the information inputted is important, it can be saved to Drive as a Doc.

Plain Text Editor - No Installation is Needed

How can you edit the text using wordpad online, free online text editor with no access limitations, effective error-free editing in very less time.

Is this tool helpful?

Enter E-mail to get response?

Even the best content submissions get rejected if they have grammatical issues. Students face such issues regularly when they are working on essays and other research assignments.

Consider that you have to submit a research paper on agile project management. While writing a research paper, one has to focus on two major sections. One is carrying out complete research so that all points mentioned in the scope are covered properly. Research papers are rejected if there is content redundancy.

The second important requirement is the submission of grammatically correct content.  Reading through every line of the research paper would be a very tough task for students. Prior to submission, each line would have to be read to correct the mistakes.

In terms of time, this is a very exhausting process that can be avoided easily. Using this online text editor, you can make a content submission without any mistakes.

Installing a plain text editor is a big hassle as well. Before anything, you need to check the compatibility of the laptop, tablet, or smartphone on which the installation has to be done. When you are sure that the editor would work on the selected machine, you can proceed with the installation. If you wish to use the editor on multiple devices, an individual installation has to be done on each one of them.

For instance, students do have text editing tools on their tablets and smartphones as well. This gives them the option to perform editing tasks while being on the move. When a student is commuting and suddenly remembers that an assignment has to be edited, the easiest way would be to use this online notepad editor.

No installations or cumbersome downloads are needed to use this edit pad. If your device has network connectivity, this tool can be used easily. There is no need to go through any setup files.

The user interface of the online text editor (Wordpad) is incredibly easy. Whether you are a student, working professional, teacher, or any other user who wishes to edit content, this word pad would work perfectly for you. Let us go through the steps you need to complete to gain more understanding.

Content uploading / pasting

There is a section in which you have to paste the required content or write it from the start. The tool has a list of quality writing/editing options and you can modify a document on end to end basis. For instance, there is an option to insert a table as well. At times, corporate professionals have to insert tables at the last minute prior to submission.

Saving Options for users

If you have created a document from the start using this online text writer or need to finalize an existing one, you can save it using two formats. After completing the editing tasks, click the “save as word” or “save as PDF” option depending on your needs.

For instance, students mostly have to submit their assignments and essay papers in word format. Similarly, the finance professional would make a submission in PDF format.

The best thing about online tools is that they do not have device-based usage restrictions. When you are using offline tools, they can only be used after the installation has been done successfully on a device. If you wish to use the tool on three devices simultaneously, the installation would be done on each of them.

This online text editor is not dependent on installations in any manner. It can be easily accessed on multiple devices with internet connectivity without any installation steps. It is the best alternative to Editpad.

At times, one has to perform editing tasks for multiple documents. Consider that you are working on a detailed research paper and all the sections have to be edited individually. Considering this requirement, you need a tool that is free and can be used as many times as needed.

This plain text editor is a free tool and no limitations have to be faced by the user. It is recommended for students, corporate professionals, marketing personnel, and other user types.

There is no room for errors in content submissions. If you are a human resource professional and submit a job description with grammatical or format mistakes, your boss would not be happy at all. At the educational or professional level, the content would be free of mistakes irrespective of the form in which it is submitted.

People are involved in writing tasks across many fields, and they have to prepare and edit files using software like MS Word, WordPad, etc. However, the problem people face with these programs is that they don’t come for free. They need to be installed on your device, and the device should be compatible enough to run them smoothly.

How to write a text

What is a text.

There are several text definitions, none is generally accepted.

"A text is a communication tool that an author uses to communicates a fact to a reader. The author tries to control the consciousness of the reader by means of linguistic formulations in such a way that the reader understands what the author means." (Schnotz, W.(2006). Textverständnis, in: Rost, D.H. (Hrsg.), Handwörterbuch Pädagogische Psychologie.(3. Aufl.), Weinheim: Psychologie Verlags Union, p. 769-777)

A text can inform, explain, prompt, entertain or attempt to manipulate. Common to all texts is that everyone has the goal to communicate at least one statement. Statements always have two sides: content and style. An arbitrary string of letters (e.g. uihagnund) is not text.

What is a good text?

A good text is understandable, pleasant, interesting and stimulating.

We can "summarize our basic right to understandable, pleasant, interesting reading into three basic requirements ... 1. Writer and speaker: Be brief! ... 2. Grasp the matter - hit the target ... 3. Love your reader as yourself! ... What they [the readers] find pleasant, what inspires them: That counts."

(Schneider, W. (1988). Deutsch für Kenner. Die neue Stilkunde. Hamburg: Gruner + Jahr, p. 40 u. 41)

A text is interesting if it offers the reader something new that is important to him. It is pleasant when the reader feels entertained. And it is inspiring when the reader is made to use his imagination.

When is a text easy to understand?

"Everywhere there is a lack of the insight that someone always has to plague when a complicated process is to be described in a comprehensible way: the writer or the reader. Writers tend to pass this plague on to the readers ... "

(Schneider, W. (1988). Deutsch für Kenner. Hamburg: Gruner + Jahr, p. 43)

Based on their research findings, Hamburg psychologists have found four characteristics that make a text easy to understand:

1. Simplicity

"Simplicity refers to the choice of words and sentence structure, i.e. to the linguistic formulation: common, descriptive words are combined to short, simple sentences. If difficult words occur (foreign words, technical terms), they are explained."

(Langer, I., Schulz von Thun, F., Tausch, R. (2002). Sich verständlich ausdrücken. München; Basel: Ernst Reinhardt, p. 16)

An understandable text is written in correct and stylistically good English. I have to master my language in such a way that I can express myself accurately with simple words and sentences.

What is proper English, says the grammar, which is responsible for the formal rules of the English language (the spelling is a branch of grammar). There are countless books and websites about grammar.

What is good English, examines the style. Style is the way someone speaks or writes. There are many books on style that explain what style is.

2. Structure/Outline

A text is understandable if it has a clear structure.

"This feature refers to the inner order and the outer structure of a text. Internal order: ... The information is presented in a meaningful order. Outer structure: The structure of the text is made visible. Related parts are clearly grouped, e.g. by headlined paragraphs". (Langer, I., Schulz von Thun, F., Tausch, R. (2002). Sich verständlich ausdrücken. München; Basel: Ernst Reinhardt, p. 18)

I can only describe a complicated issue in a way that is easy to understand if I have understood it myself. Understanding something means knowing not only the facts, but also the relationships between the facts. Structure is the way the parts of a whole are arranged and relate to each other. I must have understood the structure of the facts in order to be able to write a well-structured text about them.

3. Brevity/Conciseness

A good text is not too long and not too short. It is limited to the essentials. If a text is too short, questions remain unanswered. If it is too long, it describes superfluous or too many details.

4. Stimulating Additions

A scientific text should be factual, but also stimulating. Therefore, it should contain a few stimulating additions. Used sparingly, they increase the clarity of the text and its memory value. An interesting example would be such a stimulating addition.

How to create a clear text structure?

A longer text (Latin textum: tissue, assembly) has a hierarchical structure. This results from the need to explain the main message by using partial statements. The partial statements are described by partial texts, which are also called text segments. These represent "essential units of meaning." In them, "sub-themes are developed that contribute to the development of the overall text (and the main theme) ..." ( https://web.archive.org/web/20081222153848/http://www-user.uni-bremen.de:80/~schoenke/tlgl/tlgl.html , siehe unter Teiltext, 20.10.10)

"For Harweg, texts are formed as 'hierarchically structured entities' (Harweg 1990: 17), 'from top to bottom' with consideration of the text theme, and are also constituted linearly, 'from left to right'."

( https://web.archive.org/web/20081222153848/http://www-user.uni-bremen.de:80/~schoenke/tlgl/tlgl.htm l siehe unter Textstruktur, 15.11.12)

The structure of a text could look like this:

How to write a text? The red thread - www.learn-study-work.org

Each table of contents shows in principle such a hierarchical text structure. Each text answers a main question whose answer is the main message of the text. Likewise, each chapter and subchapter answers a subquestion whose answer is a partial statement.

It would be optimal if an author already has such a text structure in mind when she starts writing. But this is not necessary (see below) and a text does not start with the main message.

The red thread shows the linear linking of the subtexts. These must follow one another logically. This means that the reader must first read the subtexts that are necessary for understanding the following subtexts. There must be no omissions or jumps.

The red thread is the guiding principle that runs through the text. The above picture makes this clear:

Definition: The "red thread" is formed by all subtexts that have a connection to the main message of the text and are in a logical order.

In the image above the s ubchapter 1.3 is superfluous because it has no connection to the main message and therefore does not belong to the red thread of the text. It does not help to clarify the main message and should be left out.

What is the main message of a text?

The main message is the most important statement of the text, formulated very briefly, preferably in one sentence. It expresses the essence of a text:

"After Uncle Herbert has read the first story in the magazine Stern, he calls for example into the kitchen: ' Helga imagine: If the climate catastrophe continues like this, Wiesbaden will be on the North Sea in 40 years' time! ' This ... kitchen call ... is the answer to the question: ' What does the author want to tell us with his text? ' " (Reiter, M., Sommer, S. Perfekt schreiben (2009), München, Carl Hanser Verlag, p. 20)

The kitchen call is the main message of a text. It is often difficult to formulate such a main message, because it depends on the reader's perspective from which he sees the text (what interests him most in the text). Each reader can determine the main message himself. Sometimes it is easier to determine the main question that the text answers. The main message would then be the answer to this main question (see below).

"Text comprehension is a ... goal-oriented process. ... Microstrategies are aimed at understanding the consecutive statements ... Macro strategies, on the other hand, focus on working out the main ideas of a text." (Schnotz, W. (2006). Textverständnis, in Rost, D. H. (Hrsg.), Handwörterbuch Pädagogische Psychologie, Weinheim: Beltz Verlag, p. 774)

Why is writing often a problem?

A problem exists when there are obstacles on the way to a goal. Obstacles can also arise when writing a difficult text. That is why it is important to have a writing pan.

" A writing plan becomes necessary when the writer is unable to realize his communicative goal directly. The obstacles can be very different; the writer may lack the necessary thematic knowledge, he does not know the addressees and their prior knowledge, he has no ideas for the unfolding of the topic, he lacks suitable formulations and other things." (Becker-Mrotzek, M. (2007). Planungs- und Überarbeitungskompetenz entwickeln, in: Informationen zur Deutschdidaktik, 31 (2007) 1, p. 25-34)

1. Obstacle: The necessary thematic knowledge is missing

Anyone who wants or has to write a text usually already has some knowledge about the subject in question. But you must not believe that you can simply write the text down. Only experts who have already written several texts on the subject can do that.

"It is a well-known phenomenon to come across unexpected questions that remain unanswered when one tries to present a problem coherently and convincingly, because one then passes less lightly over what seems to be known. ... Problems are often an indicator of one's own incomplete knowledge." (Ascheron, C. (2007). Die Kunst des wissenschaftlichen Präsentierens und Publizierens, München: Elsevier GmbH, p. 179)

"Writers must therefore constantly ask: what am I trying to say? Surprisingly often they don’t know." (Zinser, W. (2001). On Writing Well, New York: HarperCollins Publishers, p. 12)

If you have "writer's block", the first thing you should do is check whether your thematic knowledge is sufficient. New knowledge always builds on existing knowledge. The same applies to texts. That's why I need other texts as a basis and as models when I want to write a new text.

When I combine other texts, my new text is different and hopefully better than the originals. It should express my opinion and my thinking. If the content of my text is not much different from an original, then of course I always have to give the original as source (otherwise it is plagiarism).

I may have to find and read many different texts to acquire the necessary thematic knowledge.

2. Obstacle: No idea to unfold the topic

If you have no idea how to unfold the topic, you don't know how to structure your text. The following describes how to proceed from the general to the particular in order to structure the text. (How to proceed from the particular to the general: see " Text Outline ".)

The quote above says that writing a difficult text requires a plan. The first step to a plan is to decide what the main message of the text should be. I need to do a literature review to see what others have written on the topic, because my main message must be consistent with the existing literature.

If I know the main message of the text I want to write, I can use it as the starting point for my outline. I ask myself, what do I have to tell the reader to understand the main message? By answering this question, I find partial statements. I subdivide this further: What do I have to tell the reader so that he understands the sub statements?

So I can continue until I have reached the lowest level of my outline (the lowest level of my chapters). A text should not have more than 3 outline levels so that it does not get confusing. Even at the lowest chapters, I ask myself: what must be written in this subchapter, so that the reader understands the sub statement of this subchapter? I then write the text as an answer to this question. I subdivide it into paragraphs so that it looks good and is easier to read.

The following figure describes the procedure for the first two outline levels of a text:

How to design the structure for the reader - www.learn-study-work.org

With this approach I have to estimate the level of knowledge of my readers to find the right structure. A text for non-professionals looks very different from a text for professionals.

If I don't know the main message of my text at the beginning, I can use the main question as a starting point. So I don't have to wait until I have planned the whole text. I ask myself: Which sub-questions do I have to answer in order to find the answer to the main question?

As soon as I have found a subquestion, I can start working on it: I acquire the necessary thematic knowledge and try to write down the answer to the sub-question right away. This first draft doesn't have to be perfect. I have often been annoyed that I didn't write down my thoughts on a question immediately. Later, however, I had to work my way back into the question.

When I have written the text for a subquestion, it usually leads to the next subquestion that I have to work on. I often come to the linear (logical) structure of my text all by myself. I only have to check whether I have not forgotten a subquestion. But it also happens that I don't include a edited subquestion in my text at all.

A good starting point for finding subquestions is to look at the definitions of the terms that the text will be about . Defining something precisely is not easy and raises many questions.

When I finish writing the text, hopefully I will have found the answer to the main question. Now I check the chosen structure. A text must not be a list, where the items follow each other without logical connection. Such a text is boring. A logically structured text is easy to read and gives the reader the opportunity to think along.  

Nowadays, the advice is often given: "Tell a story!"  A story comes from the description of consecutive events. In a good story, the audience thinks along with the story and asks, "What happens next?" With a text, it should be the same.

3. Obstacle: The lack of appropriate formulations

In a language there is a word for every thing, for every appearance and for every process. If we relate the words to each other and formulate sentences, we can make statements. A statement is the linguistic representation of a fact. (Seiffert, H. (1975). Introduction to Philosophy of Science 1, Munich: Publisher C. H. Beck, p. 53 and 60)

In other words, if we want to say something meaningful, we have to bring the appropriate words into a meaningful relationship. Such a relationship of meaning is called a sentence. (Klein, H. W., Strohmeyer, F. (1967). Französische Sprachlehre, Stuttgart: Ernst Klett Verlag, p. 13).

In order to be able to formulate understandable sentences about a fact, I must

1. ... have understood the fact (see above).

2. ... have the appropriate vocabulary.

Which technical terms are used for a particular issue, I see in texts that others have written on this issue.

3. ... master the grammar and spelling.

4. ... choose the right style for my statements.

When we do something, it is not only important what we do, but also how we do it. Style is the way how we do something.

If I want to remind a friend of a meeting today , I have different ways to formulate it : "Do not forget our meeting today." "Be punctual today!" "Please come on time today!" "If you do not come on time today, you're in trouble." … Which is the most appropriate phrase depends on the specific situation. Everyone knows how embarrassing it is to use the wrong words.

"The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter:  it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning."

(Mark Twain, Letter to George Bainton, published in "The Art of Authorship" by George Bainton)

Choose a text type, determine the content and the style - www.learn-study-work.org

If I want to write a text, I first need an idea of what I want to say with the text. Then I consider whether the planned text belongs to a certain type of text. Sometimes I can choose between several possible text types (e.g. between a letter and an email).

"I f texts have the same characteristics , forms , objectives and are used in similar communicative situations , they can be assigned to specific types of text ." (Fischer, C. (2010). Texte, Gattungen, Textsorten und ihre Verwendung in Lesebüchern. Dissertation, Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen, p. 15)

Style rules have been defined for each type of text . So if I want to write a text that belongs to a certain type of text ( for example , a business letter or a poem ), I need to learn about and follow the style rules that apply to that type of text .

Since the style rules for the types of text are usually only rough rules , there are still ways to write the text in a personal style . Always strive for a style that makes the text easy for the reader to understand .

"The approach to style is by way of plainness, simplicity, orderliness, sincerity." (W illiam Strunk, jr. (1959). "The Elements of Style" )

If a text is difficult to understand, then the author has not tried hard enough.

"Everywhere there is a lack of insight that someone always has to work hard […]: the writer or the reader. Writers tend to shift this plague onto the readers ..." ( Wolf Schneider, quoted in www.uni-wh.de/fileadmin/user_upload/00_Startseite/Stil-Leitfaden.pdf , 09.02.22, p. 1)

4. Obstacle: Often there is no time for a thorough revision

" Writing is hard work . A clear sentence is no accident. Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time. Remember this in moments of despair."

(Zinser, W. (2001). On Writing Well, New York: HarperCollins Publishers, p. 12)

It is not difficult to describe a simple fact , such as " We meet today at 5:00 p. m. at the station ." However , it is not possible to describe a complex situation in the first attempt . The human brain is unable to consider at once all the factors that are important when writing a difficult text .

In a finished text, the reader must recognize a "logical flow" and the style must fit the content (the formulations and the design of the text). Therefore, demanding texts must be revised several times, for which time must be planned.

What is the writing plan for a difficult text?

1. I estimate how much time is available for writing the text. 2. I decide which main question the text should answer. 3. I try to imagine what the answer to the main question might be.

To do this, I do a literature search to find other texts that also say something about this main question. Using these texts as a model, I develop an idea for the answer to the main question = for the main message of my text. (Maybe there are other sources I can use as a model, like interviewing someone).

4. I think about which subquestions I have to answer so that a reader can understand my main message.

So I determine the structure of my text, that is, I make an outline.

5. I also do a literature search for the subquestions, read the appropriate texts and check my outline.

When reading the literature, I always pay attention to the style used by the other texts (technical words, formulations, outline, visualizations). This makes it easier for me to formulate my text later.

6. Finally, I estimate whether I can complete the planned text in the time available. I take into account that I will need additional time to revise the text. I also plan a time reserve for unexpected disruptions. If there is not enough time for the writing plan, I have to change the main question or my outline, or I have to answer the sub-questions shorter.

Even if my writing plan is not yet fully developed, I can start writing because I am now sure I will be able to write the text. Further insights will come as I write.

Insecurity is often combated by excessive " information gathering .. . or by blind ( because it is hardly based on information ) actionism ." (Dörner, D. (2000). Die Logik des Mißlingens, Reinbek bei Hamburg: Rowohlt Verlag, p. 153)

With good planning, I have enough time at the end to revise my text. I read it through several times and look for spelling mistakes and bumpy passages . If the text is easy to understand and can be read fluently, it is ready.

Writing good and understandable texts is a skill that can only be acquired by practicing.

Texting Conversations in Writing: What’s the best format?

I was reading a great post on Dan Alatorre’s blog today, “3 Ways to Show a Text Conversation” (that’s no longer available). It was talking about how to write text messaging in our manuscripts. He presented several ways of accomplishing it, but after some research and feedback he felt only one was a truly worthwhile way.

The problem with it, as Dan mentioned, is that there is no standard format for writing a text message conversation into a story. He suggested the best format possible be made the standard. 

I had a thought about what I would assume texting talk should look like when reading a story. Here’s my spin:

What about offset like in the box without the box? You know? I’m going to write a quick story piece and insert a section of text talk to try to illustrate what I mean.

In advance, I’m sorry for the screen shot. I wanted to make sure the formatting would show and make sense.

Gretchen looked at her watch and flopped down on the couch with an exasperated huff. She’d gotten home from work expecting to spend the afternoon with her boyfriend, but his text was nothing short of a downer. Dating a firefighter definitely had its annoying moments, but she couldn’t deny he sure looked good in suspenders.

texting in ms

With this it’s like a double tab (and by tab I don’t mean really tab! Use the ruler/indent features to properly format) for one person and a triple tab for the POV person  (I’m being lazy and using this term for the character from whose perspective we are seeing).

For consistency, the POV person would always be the triple tabbed one (farther to the right) like in a text box on your phone. The person texting you is always on your left and you are always on the right (or at least that’s how it is on my phone and computer).

Keeping the lines shorter and having double space between speakers also gives the appearance of texting. The POV is not in italics while the other person is. I’ve never thought of trying to write text conversations in a book, so it’s an interesting concept to consider.

Something like this hearkens back to how long quotes, songs, and other added elements are offset within a story. It relieves the need for beats (unless you want to add in what the POV character is doing or thinking while texting, which I think is a good thing) and dialogue tags for the texts.

I’ve never read texting within a story before, so this is a new concept for me, but I’m curious to know what you think of this possible method. It would be great to make sure we as writers have a consistent way of writing text message conversations in our manuscripts that are both easy for us to format and easy for our readers to follow.

I’m not sure how this element would be rendered with some software when auto formatting into epub and mobi formats, but I’d be curious to know.

But if I were to put texting into my manuscript, this is probably–and I’m way far away from 100% on it– how I would accomplish text message dialogue in a manuscript. Am I way off base or on to something? 🙂

‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ does it nicely. I had never seen it before. It was so natural that I came to anticipate their next conversation. I no longer have the books so can’t say exactly how it was formatted, but there were italics, maybe names, and it was indented I believe. The texting of their banter was beautiful.

Would you say it was similar to this? I think with the advancement of technology, eventually it will be that texting conversations will look just like the screen layout of a phone. Even ebook will have that ability. At the point, I think it would be great to just name yourself and someone who would be willing to text back and forth with you the names of your characters and then get a screen print of the back and forth dialogue of the two characters to put as an image in the book. 🙂

An interesting topic. I recently had a story published with a text conversation by a trade publisher, and he offset it, but he didn’t use the shorter lines. I think I like it better that way, but I’m willing to be convinced otherwise. 🙂

I figure the more we can make it look like texting the better. Congrats on another published story, Cathleen! I sure miss our regular chats on here. How is everything else going?

I tried putting an emoji with a text when I first formatted a book for Kindle – when I uploaded and previewed, the darn thing kept appearing on top of the text no matter what I did. I ended up deleting it.

That’s exactly the main issue with formatting that we are essentially discussing. I’m hoping we can find a consistent and easy way. It’s frustrating when the formatting won’t stick.

Same thing happened to me! Most annoying.

I just read Dan’s post. I like your idea, Rachael. It feels and looks more text-like. My only concern would be the interruption of sentences that describe movement and other things going on, so I might add the persons name before each text piece to lessen confusion. But then again, adding text messages to a story is something I haven’t tried yet, so I can’t say for sure what I’d like best yet. 🙂 I do like the “tabs” idea of yours though! And like you said, it’d be interesting to find a way to make it work for ebooks. It’s a mystery for you to solve, Detective Rachael! I look forward to what solutions you come up with! 😀

haha I’ll keep mulling it over. No matter how you look at it, texting-talk in a story just looks out of place. I like to imagine some really cool formatting feature in the future that is basically a box that looks like a standard phone screen with all the little icons and time and stuff at the top and then the text bubbles below that…it would be this cool thing the author would just input the text of the conversation into to make it look like a phone screen on paper for those bits. Would be so cool…

Loved it! Linked back to this post. So timely for me. Thanks.

Thanks Jean! It caught my attention and now I can’t think of much else. hahaha

Posting tomorrow! Hope you like it. Threw in my thoughts, for the 2 cents they’re worth. Let me know what you think.

Can’t wait to read it! 🙂 Thank you!

This is how my Skype transcripts come out if you copy them. Or close. I mean with time and who says what

Ahhh! I see. I’ve never tried to copy out a Skype transcript, but then I’ve barely uses Skype. haha I should have more conversations that way. 🙂

Interesting idea, may be useful someday, and your proposed format looks good too! Thanks!

Thanks Ellie! The only issue is testing to see if it’s easy to get the formatting to “stick” when published for ebook! 🙂 I’m glad it might be useful.

In the worst case scenario you can do like this: 5:03 JACK: whatsup 5:05 SALLY: chillin 5:06 JACK: I’d warm you up now 🙂

TESS! You’ve NEVER texted, ever?! Not in the history of the world? hahaha You might have the right idea. Really, if you’ve ever had an instant conversation on Facebook messaging, Google Hangouts, or some other online real time messenger then you’ve texted because it’s basically the same thing. 🙂

Oooh. When Messenger first came along, I chatted. Huh. Now my memory’s going too. Waa. +(~.~)+

I saw Dan’s post too, and thought it was so interesting. I like what you have done here, and I was thinking the same thing with having text show up like it does on your phone. I did a short conversation of text in one of my Blogbattle stories, but I indented the POV person, and then used the right justification button for the second person, so that one was on the left and the other on the right.

I am all about the formatting, and also like to format things so that they are appealing to the eye, and think of the flow for the reader. With that said, the way I did it probably would not be a good solution, because the eyes would be darting from left to right, and might be frustrating for a reader. I do like this solution you came up with, but…as far as flow goes, since we read from left to right, maybe reverse it, where the POV person should be the double tab, and the second person the triple tab. But my thought had always been, have it as close to the real thing as possible, within the limits of book formatting.

What I have actually seen in books are text messages that are formatted like an email. These were very lengthy text messages, so it worked. There was a bold header with the two and from names, and the message was in italics. That would not work for short text messages, or how text messages really are in real life. It’s a great topic to explore, because text messaging isn’t going anywhere, and is just another element for writers to use to draw their readers in 🙂

Just a humble opinion from a novice writer, but an expert reader 😉

I lovehearing your thoughtful opinion, Carrie Ann. It’s great to get a broader understanding of the topic. I have no idea why I’m feeling so driven to figure this out except I enjoy puzzles and I agree that texting is not going anywhere any time soon. I’m sure we’ll see more and mite of it in books as time goes on.

I included a text stream in my first novel and did it by alternating the text alignment so that it was consistent with how a text box would show on a phone. However, this proved to be an absolute pain in the tuckus when it came time to format my book for an e-reader.

That’s my concern with it, too. I love solving puzzles and problems, so I think that’s probably why this is bugging me. There has got to be a way to format texting conversation that reads well and is not a headache to format. Haha

I have sometimes made use of texts in my short stories, but never thought of formatting. I don’t like texts packet with only letters but no words, for some reason even as a teen I did write out most words except when I’m a rush.

Haha I go back and forth when using texting abbreviations. It is related to the timev when texting was not unlimited and you were only allowed a certain amount of characters per text. Shorthand became economical! 🙂

I read the linked article, but I just love your idea. It really reads like text messages.

Thanks, Irena. I couldn’t get the idea out if my head yesterday. Haha

I’d just do this – 😎☕️- texts don’t go on longer than that, do they? 😉

LOL No, they usually don’t 🙂 It might be hard to put that into a book, though. Let’s make it a thing! 😉

Even that was twice what I say to most people.

How to write Hindi text on image?

How to write Hindi text on image ? There are several ways to write Hindi text on an image. Here are three methods you can try:

Use an Image Editing Tool: You can use an image editing tool like Adobe Photoshop, Canva, or GIMP to add Hindi text to your image. Simply open your image in the software and then add a text layer. You can then type your Hindi text using the software’s text tool and adjust the size, font, color, and position of the text as desired.

Use a Mobile App: If you prefer to edit images on your phone, there are several mobile apps that allow you to add Hindi text to your images. Some popular options include PicsArt, Adobe Spark Post, and Phonto. Simply download the app, upload your image, and then add your Hindi text using the app’s text tool.

Use Online Tools: If you don’t want to download any software or apps, you can use online tools to add Hindi text to your image. Some options include Canva, BeFunky, and Fotor. Simply upload your image to the tool and then add your Hindi text using the tool’s text tool. You can then download the edited image to your computer or device.

Regardless of which method you choose, make sure to use a font that supports the Hindi script to ensure that your text displays correctly.


Choose the Right Font: When adding Hindi text to your image, it’s important to choose the right font. There are many fonts available that support the Hindi script, and you should choose one that is easy to read and matches the tone and style of your image. Some popular Hindi fonts include Kruti Dev, Mangal, and Devanagari.

Be Mindful of Text Placement: When adding text to your image, be mindful of its placement. Make sure that the text is easy to read and doesn’t obscure any important parts of the image. You can experiment with different font sizes, colors, and placements to find the best balance between text and image.

Use Contrasting Colors: To make your Hindi text stand out on the image, use contrasting colors. For example, if your image has a light background, use a dark color for your text. If your image has a dark background, use a light color for your text. This will help ensure that your text is easy to read and doesn’t blend in with the background.

Edit and Review: Once you have added your Hindi text to the image, make sure to edit and review it carefully. Check for any spelling or grammatical errors and make sure that the text is aligned and centered correctly. You can also ask someone else to review the image to ensure that the text is clear and easy to read.

Consider the Image’s Purpose: Before adding Hindi text to your image, consider the image’s purpose and the message you want to convey. This will help you choose the right text and font to use. For example, if the image is for a promotional flyer, you may want to use bold and attention-grabbing text. If the image is for a more serious or formal occasion, you may want to use a more traditional font and style.

Use Short and Clear Phrases: When adding Hindi text to your image, try to use short and clear phrases that are easy to understand. This will help ensure that your message is conveyed quickly and effectively. Avoid using long sentences or complex words that may be difficult to read or understand.

Experiment with Different Effects: To make your Hindi text more visually appealing, you can experiment with different effects, such as shadows, outlines, or gradients. However, be careful not to overdo it, as too many effects can make your text difficult to read.

Save Your Image in the Right Format: Once you have finished adding Hindi text to your image, make sure to save it in the right format. If you want to preserve the image’s quality and resolution, save it as a high-quality JPEG or PNG file. If you plan to use the image online, consider saving it in a smaller size to reduce loading times.

Use a Virtual Keyboard: If you don’t have a Hindi keyboard installed on your computer or device, you can use a virtual keyboard to type in Hindi. There are several online virtual keyboards available that allow you to type in Hindi using your mouse or touchpad. Some popular options include Google Input Tools, Bhasha.io, and Indic Keyboard.

Check for Language Compatibility: Before adding Hindi text to your image, make sure that the software or app you’re using supports the Hindi language. Some software or apps may not support non-English languages, so it’s important to check for compatibility before you begin.

Use Translation Services: If you need to translate English text to Hindi for your image, you can use translation services like Google Translate, DeepL, or Microsoft Translator. However, keep in mind that these services may not always provide accurate translations, so it’s a good idea to double-check the translation with a native speaker if possible.

Consider Local Dialects: If you’re targeting a specific region or audience in India, consider using the local dialect for your Hindi text. There are many different dialects of Hindi spoken in different parts of India, and using the local dialect can help your message resonate with your target audience.

Use Proper Punctuation: When adding Hindi text to your image, make sure to use proper punctuation. This includes using commas, periods, question marks, and exclamation marks in the right places. Proper punctuation will help ensure that your text is clear and easy to read.

Consider the Font Size: When adding Hindi text to your image, consider the font size you want to use. If your image is large, you may want to use a larger font size to ensure that your text is easy to read. If your image is small, you may need to use a smaller font size to fit the text on the image.

Use Bold or Italic Text: To make specific words or phrases stand out in your Hindi text, you can use bold or italic text. This will help draw attention to the important parts of your message and make it easier to read.

Use a Background Color: If you want your Hindi text to stand out more on your image, consider using a background color. This will help make your text more visible and draw attention to your message. You can experiment with different background colors to find the best match for your image.

Keep It Simple: When adding Hindi text to your image, remember to keep it simple. Avoid using too much text or making your message too complicated. Instead, try to convey your message as clearly and simply as possible. This will help ensure that your message is understood and remembered.

Florida bill would require bloggers to register before writing about DeSantis

A bill proposed this week by a Republican state senator in Florida would require bloggers who write about Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), his Cabinet officers and members of the Florida legislature to register with the state.

Bloggers who receive compensation for a given online post about an elected state officer would have to register with the Florida Office of Legislative Services or the Commission on Ethics —  though the requirement would not extend to the websites of newspapers or similar sites. 

“If a blogger posts to a blog about an elected state officer and receives, or will receive, compensation for that post, the blogger must register with the appropriate office … within 5 days after the first 164 by the blogger which mentions an elected state officer,” reads the bill , introduced by Republican state Sen. Jason Brodeur. 

If additional posts about elected state officers were to be posted, the blogger would have to file monthly reports detailing where, when and by whom the post was published, plus the amount of compensation received. Failure to file reports could lead to fines.

The elected state officers covered by the proposed “Information Dissemination” bill are defined as “the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, a Cabinet officer, or any member of the Legislature.”

A blog is defined in the bill as “a website or webpage that hosts any blogger and is frequently updated with opinion, commentary, or business content” and a blog post as “an individual webpage on a blog which contains an article, a story, or a series of stories.”

The Hill has reached out to the governor’s office for comment.
