Google docs for writing

A couple useful things you can do with Google Documents:
  • Organize a book.
    1. Open a Google documents file, and add main topics as they occur to you.
    2. Assign each main topic and sub-topic a HEADER value.
    3. Add content to topics and sub topics as it occurs to you.

  • Keep track of revisions
    Google docs keeps track of all your revisions.

    Open a google documnt and select: File>See Revision History.

    Google Documents will display a long list showing every revision you ever made to the doc. You can even compare versions by checking two revisions and selecting the 'Compare Checked' button.
