I never thought the day would come, but I'm writing my first listicle. In my defense, it's not clickbait. It's about a serious topic and heavily researched.

In the past, I've always used Google Docs or MS Word to submit my articles to the publication where this piece will appear. Problem is, I need to embed a video after each numbered paragraph. Google Docs doesn't allow video embedding. MS Word does, but it's ugly, the thumbnails don't always appear, and the formatting sometimes doesn't translate to the end user's software version.

Can anyone recommend software or a web-based program I can use to draft the listicle and submit to an editor? I need the draft to look like a properly formatted listicle.

Thanks!

I don't know anything that will actually embed web videos. I would write the editor to be sure but I would think you can just "embed" a regular web link to the video and turning it into a video embed should happen on the publisher's end.
