I have read 10-20 books on writing. This isrepparttar 129415 most concise, lucid, thorough book I have read yet. I am not writing an ebook myself, though. I am writing a fiction novel (in Norwegian, so most of you won't be able to read it if it ever is published - if it doesn't become a huge success, that is! :). With allrepparttar 129416 wheeling and dealing at my work, I felt like writing something forrepparttar 129417 pure pleasure of creating (andrepparttar 129418 tool below lets me concentrate on creating, not technology!).

That doesn't mean that 7 day ebook didn't help! No wonder consideringrepparttar 129419 authors. Joe Vitale isrepparttar 129420 bestselling author of Hypnotic Writing, Advanced Hypnotic Writing, and Spiritual Marketing.

But you need a good tool to write with!

Quite often I come across simple software - easy to install, to use or to tweak. Less often I come across brilliant software, with brilliant execution, features or ideas. Simple, brilliant software is even rarer. The Journal is one such creature.

For some time, I've had a book in my head. I've been buildingrepparttar 129423 characters, setting up scenes and creating images and dialogues.

I have started on books before. I always hit a point where I get more captivated with perfectingrepparttar 129424 previous words, paragraphs and pages than I am with creating new words.

Sure, I know; writing teachers say Write without editing. Leave it all forrepparttar 129425 rewrite. Still your inner critic. Well, I am not capable of that - when I scroll downrepparttar 129426 Word-document, I spot flaws, errors and logical mistakes - and I must fix them. OCD, I guess.

Then I came acrossrepparttar 129427 Journal (TJ). At 3 Mb, it is a fast download, and it is something I can guarantee will stick in my Programs-folder like jam-spots to a three year olds sweater.
