I am in DESPERATE NEED of completing some fic. Like, some one-shots that have quick payoff or something. But ALAS, apparently I am INCAPABLE of writing anything smaller than 10 GAZILLION words long. IDEK. *headdesk*

In further news, I HATE OPEN OFFICE. Srsly? Who the fuck can use that program?! That white screen gives me an enormous headache whenever I try to use it. So, for the time being, I've been using notepad. NOTEPAD, okay? Notepad. FML.

I think I should really try to just suck it up b/c if not I may die of lack of fanfic. Since my comp at home now doesn't open fic I saved from the internet, I am living in a total fic-less void of DOOM. I've managed to convert some MHT files to HTML, which makes them open-able, but that's about as far as I can get, b/c then you get things like a mash-up of HTML code and a word or two. Sigh.

OK, I've got to go do RL stuff now b/c life continues to FAIL and require my attention. Stupid life. Doesn't the world know I've got fic to write? I MEAN SRSLY NAO.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHNNY CASH!! John Sheppard's love for you makes you worth my time. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm not on your Flist, but we hang in the same SPN-communities. Anyway, I'm replying to this because I think I can help you on the "fic-reading" front... concerning your .MHT files or the ones you have converted from .MHT to .HTML.

It could or couldn't require you to download a new Internet browser, unless you're loyal to INTERNET EXPLORER or whichever one you might use. I can see if it's possible to turn them into legible/readable executed files that can be read like an .RTF or a .DOC...

My emails are draven2523@msn.com or crashnebula73@gmail.com -- if you wanna get the ball rolling to see if we can't get you set up to start reading all the fics you've downloaded off the Internet.

hope to hear from you... I know what it can be like with a forced dry spell of fan-fic reading pleasure, so I'd like to help you out, if I can... :O)

Thanks for the info! I'll e-mail you today, but I'm not online often so it may take me a while to get back to you. I'm trying to get to the library more often. SIGH.

I don't actually care which internet I use, but it's such a pain that not every browser runs every type of save file. I don't understand that. *headdesk*

E-mailing you now.

I <3 Open Office, but it may be more the love of not using Microsoft than the actual interface. You can change the background in Writer by going "format" "Page" "background", hopefully you find something less headache inducing!

Recently I have been playing around with GoogleDocs for writing and I've been enjoying that too. Especially the autosaving every few seconds aspect, because I am fail at remembering to save my stuff XD You need internets for it to work though, but maybe when you're ready to edit?

re: fic - AO3 is the greatest thing ever because you can download things to PDF with just one click. Wonderful, wonderful place, AO3 :)

<3 Good luck with your writing.

Oh, thanks for the info! It's been a trail being without a computer for so long, then not being able to write when I finally got it back! *headdesk*

Hm, that sounds good if I one day get the internet. I like auto-save too. It helps me not lose everything I've done all the time.

I'll have to go search out this A03. Fics in PDF format sound AMAZING!!

♥ Good luck with your writing, art, and everything else!
