Nano Will Soon be Here
I apologize for how late this post is. Apparently, life had other plans in which he did not wish to include me in on. Happens far too often. Back to the topic.
National Novel Writing Month is only 96 days away. That’s little over three months. Doesn’t feel like it’s been a year since the last one. In 2008, I decided to break away from Microsoft Word and use a different word processor.
Q10 has a lot going for it. It takes over the entire screen, doing away with computer distractions. It’s very simple and I love the typewriter sounds. You can even transfer it to a flash drive and take it on the road. The only problem I had was with the spell check. It worked fine at first. Then, I kept getting errors. Don’t know why.
This year, I have decided to try out another word processor and maybe blog about my experiences with it during Nano. I haven’t chosen one yet and opened to suggestions. Here’s the thing though, I’m looking for word processors that are free to use. I’m a writer on a budget and don’t want to splurge on software I may not even like. There’s sites for swapping books. There should be a software equivalent one too. For all I know, one or more probably exist. I know Nano is for writing a novel in a month but a chosen few like me write short stories. So, themed processors are out unless it caters to shorts.
That’s the criteria. As said before, recommendations are welcomed.
