That’s me in the photo. Do you think I look techie? Just started work on my new book. It’s for freelancers (like me) and small traders. It’s about collecting unpaid accounts. Because we all have to have to eat. Hope it’s of use. I’m using Microsoft Dictate to get the words down on paper. Voice recognition is always quicker than typing out longhand. Even if you can touch-type, you can’t type as fast as you can speak. In writing as with anything else: time is money.
I discovered Dictate during the writing of my last book ‘Housing Regeneration: a Plan for Implementation’ in which I was working to a four month publisher’s deadline. It’s also quicker than sending work out to an external secretary, because voice recognition is instant. Either way you have to correct the typos – more so with voice recognition.
I’m aiming to get my book out to publication by Christmas. The title is ‘Get Paid’. Tell me what you think.
