  1. I would like to have a quick visual guide not only of how many words I have left in the project, but also how close I am to meeting my quota for the day. This would be particularly useful for NaNoWriMo. (this is in the wrong sub forum and I'm unable to delete it!)

    Happy Birthday Calli

    Oh my gosh, poor forums! I've neglected you! To be honest, I haven't written anything either. I'm starting to get back into writing again, instead of waiting until my divorce is finished. It's always something, isn't it? Well, last year of my 20s, better make it good! Thank you Thoth and LadyM!

    How is everyone?

    My goodness, I feel like every time I come back the forums have had an overhaul. o__o

    Forum Housekeeping

    I know this isn't about STORYIST itself, but I wasn't sure where else to put it, and I didn't want to bother Steve with a PM. I was just looking around the forums, and I thought of something - would it be difficult to make, for example, a Writing Challenges forum for the NaNo and Script Frenzy forums? I mean, if you want to keep the separated by year, eventually they're going to add up... and maybe if we had a place, we could have community-based writing challenges. I don't know how that would work, exactly, but it's just a little baby brainwave.

    I dictate and storyist

    This is the only thing I can find for Dragon Dictate. Is that what you're talking about? EDIT: Ah, spoke too soon. I see that the app is indeed free. :/ Sort of wish I had an iPhone/iPad now.

    I dictate and storyist

    That was some innovative spam. Above a yeti indeed. I've been thinking off and on for a while that a dictation software would be useful - especially since I've developed this nasty pain in my drawing arm - but I can never manage to convince myself to spend $200 on something I might hate.

    Onomatopoeia

    Oh nice! I was looking for something like this a few weeks ago. Thank you!

    How'd Irene treat all of you?

    I was in Seattle during the storm, but my friend closed my windows (someone didn't look at the weather reports before leaving!) and the worst our town seems to have suffered is some tattered awnings. (Dover, NH)

    Milestones.

    I made it to 28! (Still no finished novel though.)

    Writing Area Setup

    Oh hello there. Did you miss me? I'm wondering, for those of you that have a choice in how you get to the keyboard, how your writing area is set up. Have you tried a standing desk? One of these crazy chairs? I'm still young, but hunching over the keyboard for 8-10 hours a day is going to start doing some serious damage if I don't wise up. I have my Cintiq (thing I use to draw) on a dresser; trying to incorporate some standing hours.... What do you guys do?

    Don't Try This At Home...

    Oh man, I love 10k days. My body hates me, but they are so awesome.

    Audio Books

    I've been so busy for the last - god, four months now - that I've had zero time available to read... or write, in the strictest sense. I'm trying to make the time, but I'm also curious as to how people here feel about audio books. I've always stayed away because I liked the pleasure of silent, single-minded absorption that comes from a book. But who knows, I could be missing out on a great thing. And even half-paying attention is better than no input at all. A girl can only create for so long before the random inspiration tank needs to be re-filled, you know? Are there audio books that you particularly love or hate?

    iPad 2

    I want one, kind of like I want a new kitten, but I really have no idea what I would use it for.

    Sound off!

    No worries, Jules! I put a rambly paragraph up. We should all write something this weekend. I can't remember the last time I sat down and wrote... and I NEED to!

    Sound off!

    I kind of like re-writing. I can spend entirely too long it though, which is why I don't have anything ready to show anyone. (Also, screw kidney stones. Evil bastards.)
