    Hi, I think I introduced myself a while back, but here I am once again. Briefly, I teach creative writing, write suspense novels, play the piano badly and love animals, sometimes better than people. I don't mean you of course. :)
    I live by the river, and enjoy swimming in it when it's not too cold.

    Welcome to the forums! Youll find many people who are all too willing to help you with you ipad at a moments notice. However, before asking any questions, i would emplore you to use the forums search function. This helps keep the number of duplicate threads to a minimum because your question may have already been asked.

Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Is it possible to write a novel on your i-pad?

    Hi, all,

    Thank you for the warm welcome, Tim, Moonlit Sonata, Freebird et al.

    Still mulling over buying the i-pad. It's a lot of $$

    Hi, Joan. Yes, it is an "investment" as some might call it—and I include myself in that. If you're thinking about an iPad as a writer's tool, i.e., for sitting down with and just writing, I'd say you'd probably like it once you had the appropriate apps. But if you're the kind of writer who goes into a special room, closes the door, fires up the desktop, and goes to work in splendid and accustomed isolation— well, then you might find it less useful as a strictly writing tool.

    I'm more of a "roaming writer" and I really like having the iPad as a ready companion wherever and whenever I choose to use it. (I just added the Apple wireless keyboard and it has boosted the iPad's usefulness to me by about 300%.)

    Good luck in your deliberations. I predict that once you have one you will ask yourself "Why did I wait so long?"

    The Apple Wireless Keyboard and the Origami Workstation. You are going to have to add those to the total amount budgeted for the total cost of the iPad. ;)

    As an English major, i can tell you the ipad has changed the way i write. In more ways than one. It has allowed me to write better, and faster than a computer ever could (and i have been typing since i was 5). The ability to use not only the default apple word processing application, but a few others that allow me to sync with google docs and use dropbox for cloud file storage is amazing. Also the ease of use, but also the complexity of the device should you choose to explore all of its options are astonishing.


    Get one. Nuff said :)
