Is there a writer in you?

How do you write so fast? That's a question asked of me many times. While I can type and am very visual, this is one of the many tools at a writer's disposal. Dragon NaturallySpeaking was recommended to me by another writer. I find it's invaluable for doing up emails where I have to explain in detail something. Or doing up synopses in the early stages where I am just brainstorming out loud. 
My writer friend uses it in all aspects of her writing, but I haven't reached there yet. For doing blogs like this one, this tool is invaluable. In fact, I'm dictating this blog right now using Dragon NaturallySpeaking. And my husband who doesn't write, uses this tool to compose e-mails without having to look and try to find the letters on the keyboard.
Lately, also, my hand has developed a bit of arthritis and I'm finding I'm using Dragon NaturallySpeaking more and more.
Do you have it in a writer in you? Do have a relative who can't type, but who wants to keep in touch using the Internet?
Take a look at Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Especially now, since this particular version is 75% off!

WARNING! With a professional wrestler husband and Aussie heritage, you don't want to mess with this Icon of Intrigue! Fortunately, any murder or suspense will occur only in her books.

An Inconvenient Lover

                                                                         (a spicy, paranormal suspense)

When Anastasia's fiancé's best friend, David, returns to Seattle after years of living overseas, her nice, stable, orderly life is turned upside down. In denial about her own nature and the truth about her parents' notorious and flamboyant marriage, Anastasia shuts down her attraction toward David. It would be too inconvenient to like him.

Even though digging up her family history will cause pain, David is determined to coax Anastasia's true nature out of dormancy. But if Anastasia reverts to her real character, marriage to Hugh will become impossible, and David's best friend will be hurt. And if David doesn't succeed in setting Anastasia's soul free, he will lose his own chance at winning her heart.
