If you are a writer, and you aren’t klacking away at a typewriter, you need Dropbox.
I use this all the time for writing. You pick a folder on your computer, and it will automatically sync your files to a cloud account. You can access your account in a browser as well when you are on a stranger’s computer. There is also a Public folder that gives you the option of making a download link anyone can use.
I use it all the time for LHR script meetings, keeping a back-up of big writing projects easily at hand, sending scripts to actors for video shoots, and huge file transfers for when I don’t have a thumb drive on me.
It’s great, easier to use than Google Docs, and if you sign up here, you’ll get me and yourself some extra space on top of the standard free 2GBs.
Also, if you guys have any great tools you use for getting stuff done, I’d love to hear about them!
