Finding Something Friday: W is for Writer. Er, Writing. Um, Whatever.

Holy download, Batman! I may just have to spend a few of my hard-earned bucks for this program called WriteItNow that I found today.

After spending the last thirty minutes or so, fiddling with the free demo download, I’m beginning to see a definite value in this story-writing program. On the other hand, the demo story has to do with Native Americans and shamans and a mystery. I mean, I totally got sucked in with the story. But then there’s the super-impressive software sucking me in, too…
I’d love to hear if any of my writing buds have tried it. What was your experience? Or if you try the download and decide to buy WriteItNow, let me know all about it. Because it has just occurred to me that Mother’s Day is this weekend.

I’m pretty sure that Mother’s Day had something to do with the Writer Mama Every-Day-in-May-Book Giveaway. I don’t think it matters whether you are a mom or not; as long as you enjoy a good read, and enjoy winning a good book, then you’re eligible. Still, it’s a good idea to read “Da Rules.”
So zip over to Christina Katz’ site to find today’s giveaway. Meanwhile, I have some writing to do. Something along the lines of…
Dear Junior Halls,
I know you’ve been racking your brains, trying to figure out what to give your dear, sweet mother. It just so happens, I’ve got a couple brilliant ideas…

  1. I want to know what's so awesomely awesome about the writing program? Please share! Oh…and Happy Mother's Day!!! And, if need be, remind your Halls about the bazillion hours of labor, diapers, time outs, soccer games and tears you've endured for them. A mom's greatest weapon is guilt!

  2. Hmmm, no, I haven't tried this yet. That's what the Inklets are for. 🙂 It does sound interesting though! I'll be checking back to see what kind of feedback you get on this.

  3. Tanya, download the FREE demo and you'll see. And alas, the kids wise up to that guilt card after 20 years or so. But good luck to you! (And Happy Mother's Day!)Stay tuned, Debra…or check out the demo and let me know what you think. And hey, you're still gonna need the Inklets. The software only helps you write. Whether it's good, bad or ugly–only the Inklets know!

  4. Cathy, you've got me curious about the writing download. I'll give it a try and let you know. I haven't tried something of this nature before. Have a fun and happy Mother's Day weekend.

  5. Huh. I'm having a tough time figuring out how a writing program would work. All I can imagine is a series of prompts, but I'm guessing it's more sophisticated than that. Keep us posted on how it works for ya!

  6. Sally, let me know what you think!Vicky, you still have to do all the writing; the software just includes tons of tools to help with organization. So, let's say you have tons of notes. The program organizes them (with web links) in your document. Very handy if you're writing a novel with lots of background research.But I suppose I don't need to tell YOU how tricky that can be. 😉

  7. I don't know Write It Now, but I recently bought Scrivener, another program for writers with a free trial period, and I love it. It's really helpful both for first drafts and also for revising.
