I know a lot of you folks are using very fancy editing tools. Mine is pretty simple, I am using OpenOffice Writer on a Fedora 13 machine and I hope to soon share my chapters with my MacBook Pro. With a little help from git, maybe I can edit and sync content on both machines.
Is anyone out there using oowriter as I am? Are there any templates that I ought to think about using for a generalized book project, or changes to preference settings? For instance, one preference that was driving me crazy was the “word completion” option buried inside the autocorrect options. I just hate seeing that blue bar pop up with a suggested word completion string. So I turned it off.
I’m pretty happy using oowriter. I’m forced into thinking about my writing and whether it is making sense and meeting my quota for the day. I too have to resist the urge to edit, I’m pretty successful at that as I think of wonderful new paragraphs to add.
