If you work as a freelance writer, there are several websites and software programs that are very helpful. These tools allow you to collect information you find when you're researching your articles, check your writing to make sure it's not plagiarized, and make sure your writing is clear and understandable. The tools I'll discuss in this article are Evernote, Hemingway, and Copyscape.
