As I’ve chronicled elsewhere, I do a lot of writing with a wiki. In my case, DokuWiki. It’s not just an environment for me to work in (although that’s a big part of it). I’ve also used my wiki for collaborating with other writers.
I use wikis for planning, taking notes, and writing. Nothing else. To make those jobs more efficient, I needed to customize my instance of DokuWiki. That was fairly easy. The community supporting DokuWiki have created everything I need to do that job.
Here’s a look at how I turned my instance of DokuWiki into a writing environment.
