Technology - Friend Or Foe
Technology - is it your best friend or your worst enemy?
I'm doing some research for an article which will look at how different writers use technology to help them in their writing. (I won't be looking at use of the internet for research, or using technology to promote your work, as those areas have both been covered in great detail.)
What I'm looking for are things to do with how technology helps with the actual writing - things like - voice recognition software, novel planning software, project planning packages etc
I'm also looking for people who hate technology and wish they could go back to using a quill and parchment. And I know lots of people (including me now I come to think of it) have horror stories of backing up the wrong versions of documents, or of computers crashing and taking a whole day's work with them.
If you have any thoughts on this subject or anecdotes you would be willing to share, please either leave a comment here, or contact me by email via my profile page.
Thanks very much.
And yes, the biggest barrier to the use of technology in this house is the 'help' offered by the four furry people.
