Gamesday Italia and Other Stuff

Just a quick note to say I am getting ready for Gamesday Italia in Modena. I am really looking forward to this.

Also for all you writers out there, a book recommendation; 2K to 10K: Writing Faster, Writing Better. This is one of the shortest and best books about writing I have read, and certainly the best book about writing I have read this year. It’s by Rachel Aaron, of How To Write 10,000 words in a Day fame and it covers not only how to increase your word count, but how to edit efficiently and well, and probably the most important bit of writing advice you are ever likely to get in terms of motivation, and, no, I am not going to tell you what it is :). Go get the book! It’s only 30000 words and you can read it in an evening. (I did.) It’s available as an e-book for the Kindle and it costs only 99 cents/ 77p on Amazon.com and Amazon UK. Can’t say fairer than that. 

I was hoping to do a review of DragonDictate 3 for the Mac, which I recently acquired but I have not had enough time to play with it yet so that will have to wait for next week. And on that note, I am off! See some of you in Modena, I hope.

    Nice to know you’re coming to Italy. I believe you’ll like Modena, it’s a place with nice people, good food (tortellini) and nice cars (Ferrari). Enjoy your journey!

    • Thanks, Davide, its pretty much a flying visit. I arrive Saturday evening and I leave Monday morning and I will be spending most of the Sunday at Gamesday but I am hoping I’ll have a chance to look around. If I get a chance I will try the tortellini :).

  2. Motivational advice is always handy, so that’s a sale (are you on commission Bill?). Have a nice time in Italy! 🙂
