Lord grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things I can.
And the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people
I had to kill because they pissed me off.
The pretty much only software I have to use that I hate with visceral dread is Microsoft Word. Unfortunately, it is still the de facto standard for file exchange in large projects (I still have hopes for GoogleDocs). I have avoided giving tips for Word here and strongly recommend Scrivener for writing, but a short time ago I stumbled upon Arno’s Tech Tools page, who has a lot of information about using Word without going insane (and a lot of other useful links).
So if you want to use Word without it driving you insane, it’s well worth a look. 🙂
