As soon as this head cold has abated enough to do it, I’m installing and training Dragon Naturally Speaking. I’m not that keen on the idea in some ways. I tend to be silent or sing, neither of which will work well for the Dragon. I am, however, exceptionally keen on keeping my hands functional for as long as possible. So Dragon it is.
My friend Mary has a Dragon named Puff. I was planning to call mine Smaug, but after disliking The Hobbit movie so much, I decided that was out. I found the perfect name, though: Figment! The purple Disney/Epcot dragon. I adore Figment. He was my bud when I went there in the 80s. And since I’ll be doing most of my fiction writing with the fellow, it’s perfect to have a Figment of my imagination to help.
Here’s Figment on my desk. Here’s to Figment showing up in my computer soon. ROWR!
