Today I had a huge number of things on my To Do list. One of them was a hopeful “write fiction?”.
It did not get an asterisk.
And so it did not happen.
But I did think about the fiction I wasn’t writing, and the story ideas there might be there.
And I discovered another hidden feature of the Mac Operating system today 1 Apparently there’s a misleadingly-named Quicktime Player on there that also does screen recordings. With audio. I’ve been reading about Camtasia (in my PC days) and Screenflow, but completely failed to realize there was a built-in way to easily create on-screen tutorials for things like, say, how to use a custom online writer’s community.
So that’s what I did.
Five tutorials about using the StoryADay community, so that people don’t have to figure it out 2. Boom. Done.
Not exactly writing, but creating. And writing-related.
- I used Macs at university a thousand years ago, but from 1996-2010 I was Windows all the way. Moving back to Mac has been painful and four years later I’m still going “what? You mean I can do XYZ?! Why the #$% didn’t they think to mention that? What am I psychic? Is Steve Jobs just supposed to inhabit my brain?” ↩
- Or not, and get frustrated and leave the site. ↩
