Send Your Work-in-Progress to Your Kindle

If you’re a new writer, like me, you are probably your own editor when it comes to your first draft.

Sending your work-in-progress (WIP) to your Kindle helps you:

  • Read in a more comfortable/relaxed setting.
  • Read/edit your WIP from anywhere.
  • View your WIP from a new point of view.

nature-2798392_1920✨This last one is important ✨ When I read my work-in-progress on Kindle, and not on a Word document, I seem to get a new vantage point where mistakes pop out a lot clearer than on Word.  I wrote curb instead of curve?  Got it.  It is truly viewing your work from a reader’s point of view.

Without further ado, here’s how to send your WIP to your Kindle:

1. On your Amazon, hover the mouse where it says your name and Account & Lists.  This will give you a drop-down menu.  Select Your Content and Devices.

2. This will take you to Manage Your Devices.  Now click to the tab Your Devices.

3. This will give you a list of all your devices.  Choose the Kindle you want to send your WIP to.

4. Click the 💬 symbol next to the chosen one.

5. Up pops information about it, including an email.

6. Send your Word document to that email using the email you use for Amazon.

7. That’s it!

There’s no pictures because I believe in you 😉

Write on,

  1. This is a great idea. I do the same thing but I prefer to create it as a pdf and read it on my tablet, which allows me to edit while I go. It’s funny how seeing it even on a tablet is different than my compute screen. I see different things each way. Just like printing it out and editing is also something I do and recommend to people.

  2. Reblogged this on CKBooks Publishing and commented:
    Yari is making a great point – looking at your manuscript (ms) in a different format and even on a different device can help you spot things you may want to change and things you have to change like errors. I like viewing my ms as a pdf on my tablet. Even going from computer screen to tablet, I notice different things. And I always recommend to my clients to print out their ms and read it that way as well (one of the last edits I do). I also read out loud. Another very helpful editing tool.
    Thanks Yari!
