    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Forgetmenot77, Jan 6, 2009.

    I am finally beginning to find something to write about and it's short and sweet so I hope to be done with it by next month. lol Took long though just to find something to write about...it's like my mind turns off when I get home.

    I don't know I'm supposed to really reply to this.

    What are you writing about?

    Or a voice recorder. There are some nice portable units, smaller than a cell phone, that can hold hours of voice. You can even play them directly into documents with speech-to-text software, and then you can edit out the transcription errors without typing everything in from scratch.

    Thank you both...I found myself thinking at work about it especially in the middle of listening to music while I worked. I am so glad you replied because I need to work on some of my dialogue Cogito...you just reminded me.

    I keep a small notepad and a pen handy to jot Ideas.

    Sometimes just writing the dreams from the night before help.
