6 Practical Computer Tips for Writers

6 Practical Computer Tips for Writers Oh, the joys of working with a computer… Last week, I was reminded just how frustrating working with computers can be. So, naturally I got the idea to share with you some practical computer tips for writers. If you’re a writer and you find yourself wanting to pull your hair out because your computer is such a jerk, then here are some practical tips to help you out... 1. Save Often!

From about five in the morning to past eight at night, I was sick. And every time I tried to drink water, it would come right back up. That night, it was after 8 PM and I didn't know how much longer I could go without water and I was looking pretty bad – eyes had sunken in and I felt miserable.

It's been my goal since that...
