Quote Of The Day

"We live in a world ruled by fictions of every kind - mass merchandising, advertising, politics conducted as a branch of advertising, the instant translation of science and technology into popular imagery, the increasing blurring and intermingling of identities within the realm of consumer goods, the preempting of any free or original imaginative response to experience by the television screen. We live inside an enormous novel. For the writer in particular it is less and less necessary for him to invent the fictional content of his novel. The fiction is already there. The writer's task is to invent the reality." - J.G. Ballard

Vanguard Video

Today's video features a two-part presentation on setting up a properly formatted manuscript with your word processor. Though Word is used here, the advice in this presentation can be used with any word processing software. I use OpenOffice Writer myself. Enjoy the show!
