About the Writing Software Guru
I have been using Software to write with as long as the PC has been around. I’ve converted the Marine Corps to modern PC word processing software, installed “Groupware” to the Marine Corps Reserves, spoken professionally to the Gouverneur Chamber of Commerce for business literacy, and converted over 400 corporations to using Oracle Enterprise software.
I can teach Microsoft Word, Open Office, and Google Docs. I’ve been covering these subjects extensively more than 15 years.
I have a certificate in Screenwriting from UCLA. The techniques I learned in class were all about how to write a screenplay, but not how to use the software that does it. I can cover several different screenplay programs, ranging from the industry standards, to other (and better) pieces of software, to free software options.
General computer literacy
In addition to the other two major forms, I can speak about other general technology and computer literacy; including how to use spreadsheets such as Excel or Google Sheets to calculate character timelines/chronologies, and other quantifiable numbers. If you don’t get your facts right, your readers will!
