My new favorite thing...

Tip of the Day: if you've been living under a rock like me, you might not have heard about all the commotion the National Book Award nominations have caused this year. If you want an honest recap, check out Libba Bray's blog post. And we can all be reminded once again why Lauren Myracle is so amazingly fabulous and incredibly nice.

This weekend I've finally been brought into the 21st century in terms of editing my books. My new favorite thing...

Two monitors!

Why oh why haven't I gotten these before now? It's already made editing so much easier, and eliminates the time consuming switching between windows. My finger muscles are already thanking me.

For those of us that weren't blessed with fabulous memories, it's nice to have an outline open the same time as the manuscript you are working on. Or two of the same book, for all those pesky little details you have to search for.

And I'm sure I'm about to find a million other uses.

So what piece of writing equipment can't you live without?

Em, I totally can't picture this! I'm so used to hardcopy to screen or switching windows. It's really awesome looking though.

SO jealous! Hub brought home two monitors and I gave one to my parents. Should have kept it! LOL!
