New video of fiction writer using Story Lite

I am just making a new video as current videos are about features not benefits…

Now live on Youtube and our front home page.

I used Story Lite to do the notes and ideas for it, which is one of the strengths of the program.

I can add boxes, edit, move boxes around, get things in right order, change layout etc, very fast. In Word you’d have to use Split Screen, and all that, which is a nuisance. Of course if I was making a professional final document for publishing I might export from Story Lite as RTF into Word or Open Office and do the pro level layout for actual publishing.

So before I actually start editing the video, I exported the layouts – this just puts all of the content of the boxes, in order, from the Story file out into a web version (HTML) or a text version with formatting (RTF).

I have pasted this web version into here, just for fun really. I also want to see how Facebook’s RSS Graffiti handles this post.

Here it is:
