Set Minimum Word Goals When You Write Short Stories Or Novels

My job involves writing but it’s also what I do when I want to relax and rarely do I have to worry about word count or if I’ve met a certain length in terms of words. Likewise, there isn’t a strict word quota that I have to fill when I’m writing at my leisure. For blog posts, WordPress has a great editor and for my own writing, MS Word does the trick. Writing tools are mostly aimed at professionals who need to create reports or at bloggers who need to connect to publishing platforms like WordPress. Rarely will you find a tool that is meant for people who are writing books. Write is just that; it features a productivity tool that lets you set a minimum word target that you need to meet when you sit down to write. It is equipped with writing modes; Article, Short story, Narrative, Book, etc with a suggested word count that is acceptable for that kind of writing. It comes with support for headings, complete text formatting features, spell check, and the ability to Google words, look something up on Wikipedia, as well as a thesaurus.

Install Write and launch the app. By default, it launches in the Article mode. The UI is very clean and you have glorious writing space available to you without any distractions. Click the little button at the bottom left where it says ‘Article and a menu pops up.

Manage Diabetes By Tracking Blood Sugar, Activity & Medication [iOS]

Diabetes, whether it’s type one or type two, needs to be managed. In most cases, people with the disease continue to live normal lives but a lot of it centers around monitoring your blood sugar and making sure it is in the normal range. Many people rely on small blood sugar monitors to keep track of sugar levels but most devices are basic with limited memory and recall features. One Drop is a free iOS app that lets you keep a record of your blood sugar, the mediciation you take, the foods you eat, and how much activity you have in a day. You can then view your history on a chart, see if you’re in the danger zone, and even compare your health with others who have diabetes.

One Drop doesn’t work with a digital blood sugar monitor so you will have to manually enter the readings you get on your monitor into the app. It does, however read data from the Health app. If you’ve used the My Fitness Pal app, you might find One Drop’s interface to be somewhat similar. Tap the One Drop button at the bottom to make an entry.

10 Facts You Might Not Know About ‘The Wolverine’

Hugh Jackman has never been lacking in the muscle department. But for his role in The Wolverine, he wanted to be as jacked as ever. So, what do you do when you need to get huge? You get advice from The Rock. Jackman consulted the Fast and Furious star on a new training regiment and followed it during pre-production, gaining a pound of muscle daily. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which follows your favorite Canadian superhero!

Throughout Wolverine‘s many appearances in the X-Men movies over the years, he’s never worn a costume even close to the one from the comics. That almost changed in The Wolverine. In a scene that wound up being deleted, Logan is on a plane traveling back to the United States from Japan. He’s handed a briefcase and inside is his classic yellow-and-black suit from the early days of the comics. Unfortunately it was cut from the film, so you probably shouldn’t expect to see that costume in the next Wolverine movie.

If you haven’t known yet, Windows 10 is set to launch this summer. That means it’s only a few months before we can have a full experience with this operating system.
