Have you missed me?

I’ve missed you. You, my readers, and you, my blog. November came and went without so much as a “Yeah, I’m alive” post. (I did maintenance, though. Updates and such. Just no writing.)

Life got out of hand for my clients and me last month, and it’s threatening to stay that way this month, too. Regardless, I’m determined to write something so you don’t all give up on me.

I finished reading Carol Fisher Saller’s Moonlight Blogger over the weekend. She’s a slightly older, better educated me. That is to say, she says what I say but better. (I even talk to myself like she does, apparently. I’m not nearly as worried about that, now.) And because I finished that, now I’m determined to learn the keyboard shortcuts for Word.

I heard the gasps. I did.

Not ALL of them, of course, just the ones I know I’ll use most often, like bold, italic, undo, insert comment, toggle tracking off/on (for those silent changes I’m going to begin making), delete 1 word to left/right, and select text.

Yes, I’ve been a slave to the mouse/trackball for all these years. It’s time to branch out.

One thought on “Have you missed me?

  1. I should probably learn those, too, although since I got Scrivner, I have cracked Word open maybe twice. I haven’t been in love with recent iterations of Word, not since they made customizing toolbars and macros and such different enough that I can’t figure it out. Was easier to learn new software than to unlearn old stuff and relearn a new version of old software…or something like that.
