    Shaun, you're funny! No they don't write the book for you LOL. I once met with a published writer here in Charlotte, she writes mysteries. There I sat with my list of questions on my iphone, and she informed me she only uses pencil and paper when she writes, and she was looking at me like I was such a newbie with my fancy tools. So, no the program won't do the work. But for someone like me who has trouble staying organized, Storymill helped me. Everything is in one spot, character descriptions, a research section where I can post pictures and links for world building. A time line. It just helps in creating your world. You know?
    But I'm sure you're doing just fine with Office.

    I like word. My netbook didn't come with it. I miss the green squiggles.

    I know, right?? I have a friend with a Mac and she uses a writing program (I can NOT think of the name) and when she showed me what she could do with it, I was blown away. So I downloaded a beta version for my PC (all they have for now) and couldn't figure out how to use it. So I'm still writing the old way.
