Hello out there! I hope y’all have had a terrific week! Mine’s been decent – nothing overwhelmingly fantastic, but nothing bad either ;). That’s always nice. My husband had Monday off which was nice. The kids didn’t (snow make up day) which was also kind of nice – just the two of us! We did lunch!
I’m also learning how to write faster! Hopefully… I’ve had DragonDictation for a while and have used it some. A friend told me that rather than using it directly on her computer, she talks into a recorder then has Dragon transcribe it. She can write a whole chapter in about half an hour that way (she does plan the chapter ahead of time; it’s not off the cuff).
In fact, as I’m typing this, I’m waiting for my first real attempt to send from my phone to my computer to see how it went. I’ve done this a little before, but mostly while sitting in the car waiting on someone or something – just a few minutes at a time. If I can get this to work like she does? Oh my! That could be so good for my production! Fingers crossed it works for me – because we all know there’s no one size fits all solution to anything!
(Update: in about 20 minutes of recording, including all the pauses while I thought of what to say next, and after editing the stuff where I changed my wording mid-sentence and edited a bit for clarity, etc. – I “wrote” about 1050 words in those 20 minutes… Add about 10 minutes of editing time (if that much), and I think I like this plan ;))
What about you? Do you have some technology that you’re learning or want to learn that could make you more productive at whatever?
This is what’s been going on around here this week…
