One of my boss's sisters has Crohn's. She has had so much of her intestines removed that she has to eat a little something every half hour to get any kind of nutritional value from food. Other wise it goes right through her.

I've got WriteItNow2. It is great for organising your chapters, charactors, time lines and even notes for future parts of the story you haven't got to yet. It is also great to just write the story in. I have not been able to figure out how to do a lot of editing in it yet, which is one of my downfal...
