+# Geeking out with git for writing
+
+* Always write articles on your own computer (blogging system agnostic)
+ * But still be able to access & edit drafts from anywhere
+* Git is pretty fantastic, isn't just about history
+ * Writing log (automate merlin's word counter thing)
+ * Branches for different directions, ADD problems (write 5 articles at once), think writing chapters, merging when finished
+ * The index as a review tool
+ * git add --patch keeps your writing log clean & focused
+* Published all my drafts to GitHub (probably bad idea, we'll see what comes of it)
+ * Free formatting
+ * Free history viewing
