Microsoft's Mac Business Unit writes that the best software developers now use screenwriting techniques in the development process. Developers who are successful with this approach make it difficult for other developers to compete with their software.
Anyone who has worked as a developer or graphics artist knows how important screen real estate is. This InfoWorld article explores an Apple-paid study that says -- Yes, larger computer monitors make life easier. Although, if you ever walked into an Apple store and tried to use a 30-inch Cinema Display to edit a Word doc, you might think it's overkill. So I agree with those experts who claim that in many cases, two displays are better than one.
The United States economy is probably producing more words that it ever has. Through email, blogs, and websites, words are everywhere. Fact is, people with facile writing skills have an advantage.
But how do we produce words? As I look about the coffee shop where I'm using a pen to write this post, I note seven people who are writing -- six are banging away on the keys to their laptop; one has pen in hand and her words flow to paper.
Even though you may feel a little like old Ben Kenobi with a light saber when you write with a pen, the results are similar. By using an outdated instrument, you achieve outstanding results. How is this possible?
There's a subtle link between your brain and your hand that allows you to better describe ideas, feelings, and images. So as you write, picture the images in your mind's eye and the words will naturally project the movies of your mind.
