for writers

Jeff brought home a portable scanner for me yesterday (Visioneer PaperPort Strobe) and I've been having fun with it. Apparently it also does some OCR, faxing, and photocopying. The scanning quality isn't the best, but it's not bad for something so small. I scanned a bunch of pics for the ConCerto report. Site of the Day: The Astounding B Monster (thanks to Randy Hoffman for the suggestion).
Hey, Inkspot/Inklings got mentioned in the most recent issue of Netsurfer Digest:


Inkspot is a cool Web site if you're a writer. This frequently updated
resource offers market information and other key writer stuff in its
biweekly newsletter, "Inklings". You can subscribe (it's free) at the
site, search through an archive of back issues, and read articles
about topics such as self-publishing and manuscript submission.
Bookmark it if you want to be the next Hemingway.
