I think you're talking about two different things here. Writing samples are
writing samples. Normally, software usage is placed in a section entitled
"Tools" or "Software Used" in a Word document containing your resume that
users on your site can download. At least that's how I do it.

But again, I would not mix your software expertise with your writing
samples. Samples are one thing; a list of software you use is quite another.
