iPad to iWrite

So I got this iPad. I played with it for a couple of days… I was a little disappointed. It did not have ms word, no real keyboard. I had trouble typing with any accuracy or speed on the pad itself.
But then the ninja writer rose in my fingers. I thought about it and a light shone on my path. While shopping for presents at Bed Bath and Beyond I saw an iPad cover with a Bluetooth keyboard – fifty bucks.
YES! It also was a protective case and a keyboard. I started working with it. Now there is no mouse, but I can write, going online using Google docs, then incorporate (copy and paste) into my word document when I get back to my lap top.

Pros – long battery life
hard or impossible to open distracting programs
great screen resolution
lighter and nicer than a laptop
Cons – a little heavy
Not easy to stand vertical
Have to adjust to the smaller, rubbery keyboard
Have to reformat the writing with word

But its an iWriter now!

About 3by3 writing method

The author of 12 books, half of them textbooks, two novels and three self help. has struggled with his challenges of completion, distractions, plotting and writers block. Finally after getting stopped I stopped and analyzed what was going on and spent a lot of introspection, research and reading trying to locate the source of these issues. The result of was the 3by3 writing method - a three step program to start and then continue the process of completing a story all the way to publication.

    “hard or impossible to open distracting programs”

    This alone would sell that idea to me. Although it is because I *can* open distractions that I am reading and commenting on this post…
