I’ve been busy all year working on the next major update of The Journal. I had hoped to be announcing its availability before the end of 2008, but it turned out to be a “more major update” than I anticipated. So instead of announcing its availability, I’m just letting you know what I’m (still) up to.
Happy Halloween! NaNoWriMo (www.nanowrimo.org) begins tomorrow. I won’t be participating this year (I’ll be focusing on The Journal’s next update), but all of you who are: Best of luck! This month we have a couple new tips for customizing the entry tree display, and a new set of writing prompts.
This month’s tips tell you how to remove words you may have accidentally added to your custom spell checker dictionary, and how to sign up for The Journal’s affiliate sales program. There is also, as always, a new set of writing prompts.
Raymond Champoux describes how he is working to overcome procrastination using The Journal, and we have a new tip (about spell checker dictionaries) and a new set of writing exercises.
Welcome to the Heart of Summer 2008! (Or the Heart of Winter for those of you south-of-the-equator.) In this newsletter, Jon Medlock shares how he is preserving his families letters in The Journal, and we have new set of writing exercises.
Welcome to June 2008! (Or at least the 2-3 days left of June. Where *did* the month go?) This month’s Tips & Tricks show how you can doodle in The Journal, and we have a new set of writing prompts.
This month’s tip tells you how to add descriptions to your images, and then how to search through those descriptions. And, of course, we have another set of prompts for free writing, journaling and memoir writing.
April Fools Day came a few day early for me this year. Less than 6 hours after I sent out last month’s newsletter, with its article about the need for backups–the hard drive of my primary computer (a usually pleasant-tempered little Dell laptop I bought in 2005) suffered a catastrophic failure. Talk about bizarre karma. And, yes, irony. 🙂
Welcome to Spring 2008! Spring is traditionally a time of rebirth. Of flowers and trees. Of animals cute and otherwise. And allergies. (Pardon me while I rub my eyes and try not to sneeze…)
February 2008 is now almost over. Do you know where your month went?
(And could you help me find *mine*?)
