      HI Guarav, what were you looking for exactly? We’d love to hear what you have to say, maybe we can even set up another post based on your feedback 🙂

      Hi, I don’t like to be rude just because it’s Internet and because it’s free. But, I totally agreed with Gaurav and I also feel not only disappointed but cheated too. Contact Form 7? Disqus comments? Yoast SEO? Digg Digg? Seriously? Why not Woocommerce? ‘You can sell your book.’

      Come on. You’re missing great plugins on this list. Except for a few ones, the rest of them are useful for a whatever-you-do list. Not for writers only, as the post title claims. Let me show a real-list for writers and editorials:

      Drop Cap Shortcode: This plugin give you freedom to insert dropcap or not. Just change your first letters into a shortcode. Example: [T]his is my paragraph with a drop cap. The first letter ‘T’ will turn into a drop cap.

      Edit Author Slug: Allows an Admin (or capable user) to edit the author slug of a user, and change the Author Base. i.e. – (WordPress default structure) http://example.com/author/username/ (Plugin allows) http://example.com/ninja/master-ninja/

      Edit Flow: Edit Flow empowers you to collaborate with your editorial team inside WordPress.

      Co-Authors Plus: Assign multiple bylines to posts, pages, and custom post types via a search-as-you-type input box.

      And the list continue. I’ll not do the job for you guys. But please, do not deceive people just because you want some traffic. If you have a good idea like a list about plugins for writers, please, do a list with plugins FOR WRITERS.

    Thanks for these plugin recommendations! Although I am tech savvy, I rather use plugins like these and spend more time writing 🙂

    Can I suggest you “Proofreading” plugin? (https://wordpress.org/plugins/proofreading)
    I think it is very helpful to find grammar/typo/text errors and a great setting is that you can specify which type of errors you are interesting on.
