I don't know if any of you ladies and gentelmen out there have heard of this; I hadn't until today. There is an online documents site, a bit like MS Word, where you can write, store and send documents etc. I thought that maybe some of you writers out there might find it interesting and even helpful, as you can add to your documents on this site from any other computer.

Thanks for this, Ellie. It looks a very useful free service, especially if you are collaborating with one or more other writers over the Internet. It could also be a handy back-up tool. I'll definitely be signing up for an account!


Check out my writing blog at I also have a new UK personal finance blog called Pounds and Sense.

It's run by Google and it forms part of their office suite. The idea is that they offer the applications online and you can store your documents in your personal account.

There's a spreadsheet and presentation software to accompany Writely (the word processing component of the package).

It can prove useful if you move between computers or sites during the day. If anyone is looking for a good spreadsheet for little cost I recommend OpenOffice (

OpenOffice is free to download and use. It's available for a number of operating systems including Windows and Mac.
