My Favorite Productivity Tool: Keys-To-Go by Logitech

I’m sitting outside a local Coffee Bean doing some writing. I do this a lot. I find coffee shops easy to write in. There’s just enough noise but none of the distractions I find at home like “I wonder if it’s possible to make grain-free coconut flour pancakes”. It is. And quite delicious but that doesn’t help me get writing done.

One tool that has increased my writing productivity is the Keys-To-Go keyboard by Logitech.

Keys-To-Go Keyboard by Logitech

This is one of the best tech purchases I’ve made the last few years. This is a well-spaced, full-size keyboard that connects to my phone through Bluetooth. The keys on this keyboard are spaced so perfectly that I have no trouble transitioning from my keyboard at home to this light-weight version a couple times a day. And typing on this keyboard feels great. There’s a satisfying squishiness and click that lets me know I’ve pressed the key.

Now I never have to lug a laptop around (which mine is dinasour and weights about as much). The Keys-to-Go fits in my purse. The “skin” of the keyboard protects it from spills and I use a regular phone charger to charge it.

I never thought I would be one to write my books and blog on my phone. But now if I find I’m away from the office and between clients I can slip into a coffee shop and get a chapter or a blog post done. That’s amazingly helpful to me. Plus I’ve met so many people who’ve stopped to ask me about the keyboard.

For creative writing on my phone I use Gmail. At first I tried to use my regular word program for writing (mine is Open Office Writer) but that was too cumbersome on the phone. So I just write myself an email. Then at back in my office I transfer my text to my word program or add it to my manuscript already in progress.

I also use it to write emails and texts. If I have a long text answer to send to a client I pull out the keyboard. With a push of a button it instantly links to my phone.

The only complaint, if I was to have one, is the one I got doesn’t hold a charge for the month like many of the reviews said. When I first started using it I could end up at a coffee shop all ready to write and find I had a dead keyboard. But now I just charge it every day and I haven’t had any trouble with it since.

I know this isn’t my usual type of post but if you’ve found this information helpful or you would like to know other things I do to make it possible for me to put out two books a year plus have a full schedule of clients and classes please let me know in the comments below.
