Ulysses Mini-Masterclass (Video Replay)

Over the years Ulysses has literally transformed the way I write. I used to have snippets of writing and ideas scattered across a number of apps. What I needed was a central-source-of-truth to capture all my thoughts, ideas, notes, and inspiration. When I finally committed to using Ulysses as a catch-all I went from scattered to structured. It was game changing. So much so, Learn Ulysses was the first course we made here on The Sweet Setup.

Years later I’m still using Ulysses and loving it. With NaNoWriMo just around the corner, I wanted to take anyone in The Sweet Setup community interested through a few of the ways I’m currently using Ulysses.
