Here Be Dragon (Professional Individual 15).

I’m unleashing the Dragon because it’s drafty in here.

This post is a bit more for writers than readers. It’s about working with Dragon dictation software by Nuance. I haven’t been at it for too long but here’s my take.

First of all, it’s not natural at first. I know the name says “naturally speaking: but remembering to give commands like open quotes, period, and new paragraph along with the story takes practice.

I’ve talked to more than a few authors who gave up on it after a trial period. It’s not the easiest software to work with. The settings aren’t intuitive. But I had a little help from a friend. Or rather, a friend’s book.

This is Mary. She’s awesome. Click the image to learn more about her at her website.

Mary Crawford is a Contemporary Romance author I’ve known online for a few years now. She’s been using Dragon for decades so she’s an expert. And she wrote this book to help other authors learn how to use it.

I think I just might meet my writing goals for 2019 because of Mary and her Dragon advice.

Thanks, Mary!
