Conceived the idea

KP @trulykp

As I was winding down all my side-projects towards the end of 2019, I wanted to build a new product that challenged me and simultaneously helped people become better at something. Previously, as a non-dev nocoder, I only shipped projects that didn't involve users, account management, automated emails, text editors and other complex functionality. I wanted to go to the next level of no-code and ship a web app that had all the previously mentioned features and helped writers. I chose writing because I've been a writer and I know the intricacies of writing as someone who shipped 600+ articles over the years. There are many inefficiencies in writing (it's a lonely task, no quick feedback mechanism, lacks support from other peers etc) and I wanted to fix them with my platform: WRITERS COMPOUND.
