Writing Strategies

August 7, 2006

August 7, 2006

Here are my strategies for keeping a journal. First write in word and save it in my travel drive. I will dedicate one travel drive to the writing project.

Next if it’s worthy, I’ll post it on WordPress.com because it has the ability to organize post by tags.

I have a Moleskine (my del.icio.us tag Moleskine) ruled journal but I only use it if I don’t have a computer near by. I’ve now started using my Moleskine ruled journal because i like the binding and having my writing on the page straight away. Unlike the computer, I don’t have to mangage the electronic files to print it. I like to save the first blank page of the month as an Index page for that particular month. I learn this trick from the Franklin Covey Planners. I put the dates on the left margin and note the important personal events of the day. I like my Franklin Covey Binders but sometimes it’s a bit too bulky.

I like to use my Sony Vario laptop which has no internet distractions. It is a bare bones word processing typewriter. I have on old edition of Microsoft words. I like to type on the word processor because I find my thought like to jump around and this is the best way for me to edit.

For printing I’ve decided to save everything in the travel drive and then print for the desk top.

One thing about the travel drive, if I need to upgrade to more memory, I hope that if I buy the same brand, I don’t have to install a new driver.

Vox

July 18, 2006

July 18, 2003 Tuesday

Today I got an invitation to join vox You can read a review of it on my vox page.

I over heard an employee talking about her Snapfish.com She printed 80 4×6 photos for a good price. Shipping cost was $2. She said it was better then Cost Co. This got me thinking about my project to organize family photos. I have a plethora of programs to organize my photos. Perhaps I’ll post a list.

Dashes: He is speaking about blog in a meaningful way. Vox is a new way to blog. I’m always in search of a good blog application to use.

Picasa

flickr – this program is wonderful for pictures that I want people to comment on.
ryla – face recognition and easy to share
Snapfish – good for family photo and the print quality is not bad.

Ofoto –

Now i’m trying to learn how to post easier with photos.

He is speaking about blog in a meaningful way. Vox is a new way to blog. I’m always in search of a good blog application to use. I like to think of myself as a diarist. I like to be obssessive about journaling and diaries.

First Post

July 6, 2006

I’m happy to find wordpress through ‘Pappersnobbery’. I’ve been looking for a blog with the ability to use tag to organized the writing. It would be nice to be able to change the dates of the blog easily. It is very difficult to change the date in Xanga.

I am having a hard time putting images into this blog! Yahoo360 allows me to upload. Update: Okay I finally figure out the image loading. It’s got more features then I’m used to which is good. I had to look at the instruction help ‘?’

I’m looking for the near perfect blog.

googlepage

+ allows for different fonts to be use in the blog.

Blogger

My encounters with magic. When I was born, Mother had the fortuneteller write my fate in a raggedy red book. She kept it awhile in a tin box along with the money. The smell of old money and ink, and tin, and the cold ness of the metal, the weight of it…. that was my fortune’s rest. I wore red cloth triangle amulets, my walls where protected with diagrams of tiger. We believed that the somnolent body retired, but the nocturnal soul wondered as mythical beings, tigers to do combats. “Pilgrimage….escaped my mention..” Michael Stipe. When we were stranded on an island, we consulted the oracle; he used cards as a means of divination. Or how about the time when I crossed the ferry on Vancouver BC, and saw a whale? I bought a book on Magic.
