Many tools will belong to many different workflows. The words "word
processor" is explaining the tool type, but that doesn't explain what it
is that you can do with it other than process words.
If you use it to write a book, or a poem, then it is clearly something
that belongs to the "writing" workflow. If you use it to format existing
text, in order to prepare it for publication, then you would be doing
something belonging to the "publishing" workflow.

plume-creator is clearly designed for what we so far call the "writing"
workflow, but there are plenty of tools that may be used for lots of
different things.
I can imagine there being a lot of generic tools that can be used for
planning a story, for example. Question is which ones are best suited
for that.
