Writing a novel in Google Docs

I’m a pretty wired guy, and I have internet access pretty much everywhere I got except planes.

I’m going to try to write my third novel via Google Docs, instead of in Open Office and Office 2003, like I did my previous two. (You can read a serialized version of the first one here: Stone Magic)

This will be interesting, both for the potential for hassle factor w/an online-only book, as well as the lack of macros and other shortcuts I’ve grown used to.

On the other hand, the price is right, and it may just be “good enough.”

Update:  5900 words so far (much of that is infrastructure)
