Viki Babbles – about Notebooks

Viki – likes her notebooks. It’s ok, Viki, we love them too. And you don’t even mention Ciak. Probably best not to get started in that direction. Good reading, though.

I have them in many different colors and designs and I have a hard time picking which to use next. That’s because I’m a fucking whack-job.

Yeah, but this is the Interweb – everyone is a whack-job.

Knitted Garden

Jane Bolsover is in the process of organising people all over the country to knit a garden – yes, a life sized English garden. Knitted.

It’s not complete yet, but she estimates it currently contains over fifty miles of wool. That’s a lot of sheepishness.

Text Editors for Writers

Update: Added a link to Jedi Concentrate, thanks to Lifehacker.


I remember reading an article, years ago, by Chris Bidmead, where he mentioned that people were often surprised to hear that he didn’t use Microsoft Word or WordPerfect. The quote was something like “I’m a writer. What on earth would I want a word processor for?”

It sounded odd at the time, and it sounds just as odd now, because that’s what writers are supposed to use. When you stop and think about it, though, it can make a fair bit of sense.

What’s wrong with word processors for writing?
