Early Progress

Okay, even though I don't know jack about my new topic, I am happy to report the following:

I have just written the first 301 words of the post-book project.

These words are little more than summaries and some offhand early musings about two of the documents I transcribed yesterday. But they are in paragraph form, as if they were part of something. And I am pleased.

Man, you don't rest for a fucking minute, NPD.

But how exciting! Is this a new Exciting New Project?

Re: Zotero. Can you access your library on the web, or is it stored on your local drive?

@ CPP: I rest quite a bit. Haven't done a damn thing all day but buy those groceries and write those 301 words. I'm plenty lazy, I assure you.

@ Belle: No, Shiny New Project is going to be a while in coming. I need to think of a good sobriquet for this. I was calling it "Snappy Title" for a while, but I need something better.

And as far as I know, your Zotero files live on your computer, just like Endnote would. The main advantage is being able to import citations directly from major online databases. Plus, the format is easy to use, and enables you to attach pdfs, notes (searchable content), and other fun stuff. And it's free, so you can't beat that.
