Huzzah for Markdown

I’ve been moving all of my writing (fiction, blog posts, newsletter) into markdown, and I gotta say, having everything in the same ‘language’ is a huge time saver.

For writing: Scrivener (exported to .mmd)

For blogging: Scrivener (exported to .md or pasted into micro.blog)

For newsletter: Scrivener (copy-pasted into Buttondown)

No more going from keyboard to mouse to keyboard. And I love that I can take text (a book description, for example) and copy-paste it different places without needing to restyle it.

Why didn’t I do this years ago? :)
