  1. Hey, my name is also Netania! Any advice for this writer? I know what I want to write about but I can’t find the right words to say

    • Just get things roughly on paper, expand ideas and with time just revise and improve them.
      If you keep a white page in front of you for too long, it will intimidate you. I believe it’s called a writer’s block.

      If you’re writing on a computer, I recommend http://docs.google.com/ – it’s really awesome, easy to use, keeps revisions, safe as you won’t lose your data if your hdd crashes or so and you can even use it offline (with google gears enabled, the green arrow on the upper right), oh and free! You also don’t have to install the app and you can write from any computer, even share the document with people or work in collaboration.
