Maybe it was something I ate.

In fact, it was probably everything I ate. The speaker I went to after lunch was a really nice guy. He had some really good information. And he was boring as hell. He was talking when I finally gave up and left after an hour about a software package called Story View by Screenplay Systems. I'm going to have to download the package and investigate it further (http://www.screenplay.com), but based on his demo, I wouldn't even consider switching from Writer's Cafe (www.writerscafe.co.uk).

It did, however, give me an idea to pitch for a presentation at the next or a future PNWA conference: Writer's software. It would be handy if there was a nice concise review and demo of several writing packages and what you get with each. I think I'll puzzle on that for a while and then pitch it for the next conference. I know at least three packages specifically for writers (not to mention those that are just word processing or spreadsheets). I'm sure there are more.

So, I took a break half an hour earlier and am going to a session at 4:00 called What an Agent CAN & CANNOT Do for You. Alice Volpe is the speaker. She owns the Northwest Literary Agency and J.A.Jance is among her clients. That one sounds like it will be well worth while attending. Then, of course, dinner tonight is with J.A. Jance followed by an autograph party with 60 authors participating. Fun. I think I'll spend the next hour with my story and see what revelations I come up with.

yes it would. it would also be nice if you could get this online and link to all the software.

I've been using a program called Ulysses (http://www.blue-tec.com/ulysses/features.php) that I love, only problem I have is its only for the mac, and it is expensive ($110). But its a program well worth it. I just wish i could find something similar for Windows.

I would really enjoy finding a concise page with a list and information about all the best programs. If i still had my webspace, this is a project I wouldn't mind working on
