A funny thing happened to me on the way to my website.

Funny how things happen I was going to use my Dragon to update a post on my website earlier. I wasn’t thinking and had the fan one. As soon as I turned on the mike I started to get HIM Him Him Um Him Him Him Um… Apparently I can’t use my dragon and my fan at the same time. Lesson learned.

WordPress vs iPad

Well it seems the iPad and WordPress don’t really like each other.  One of the first things I noticed, was while editing a page, if I added a new paragraph and then went back, my iPad would not let me go forward into the new paragraph again, I can only get into the old one.  As if that wasn’t bad enough, I decided to add a new page and add it to my menu.  I did not think about the fact that the iPad being a touchscreen would not allow me to move menu items around by touching and moving. In fact I have not been able to determine how to move a menu item with my iPad.

Overall it was a bad experience attempting to work on WordPress for my iPad. As convenient as the iPad is I decided to do all my WordPress editing, unless it is something quick, from my PC. As much as I don’t like the idea. I’ve decided I need to get another network and use that for all my editing. The iPad seems so promising. I thought it would make my life so much easier. Apparently I was wrong all this have to do it all the old way.

On the other hand I started to use Dragon Naturally Speaking. Though the two of us fight somewhat over the words it is made life much easier. I am not a touch typist. I tend to call myself a biblical typist. by this I mean I use a seek and you shall find method of typing. Sometimes I have to seek a little longer but other times.

scrivener is it any good?

I am reading The Secind Mouse Gets the Cheese by Carolyn Schriber and one of the programs she recommends to writers is scrivener.  I had never heard of it before so decided to take a look and see what I think of it.  I downloaded and installed a thirty day trial of it last night and am reading the tutorial.  They tell me it should take about two hours to go through it.  Once I get backtomy computer I will dig into it and see what I think.  My main concern is how well the spell checker works on it.  As a creative speller I really need a good spell checker and even then sometimes the one in Microsoft word throws up its hands in dispare and gives up one me.  Of course I will use my Dragon software which I hope will save me a lot of typing.  Stay tuned for more information as I experiment with both of these tools.
