|Some folks like to write their report
day-by-day and even post the report from WDW as they on their trip.
Others take handwritten notes (and even carry a notebook in the
parks on their trip). You might wish to consider that, as an alternative.
However, my personal preference is to take my laptop computer
on the trip with me and write the report as I go (but without
posting it daily). This can be time consuming, but helps me to
capture details of our trip that I fear I'll miss if I write the
report after the fact. However, the time issue was such a problem
on our last trip that I'm going to try a new approach on our upcoming
trip. I'll still take the computer with me, but I'm going to write
only a shell of the report as we go (with bullets to jog my memory
later). Upon our return, I'll flesh out the details. We'll see
if that approach works out better.
The reason I don't like to post daily is two fold. First, I don't
want to take the time or deal with the hassle of being online
when I'm on vacation (although I admit to checking my email periodically
when I'm away). Second, I'd rather the posting be done all at
one time so newsgroup readers can pick off the entire report at
one time and enjoy reading it at their pace...not necessarily
in daily pieces. The added advantage is that the report pieces
will likely be all together when others are browsing the newsgroup.
Unless you write your report online and post as you go (in which
case it's probably easier to use your internet browser software
to write and post the text), I suggest that you write the final
text of your report using whatever word processor you normally
use. If you use WordPerfect, use WordPerfect. If you use Word
,write your report using Word. This will make using the tools
for your writing the most familiar to you and simplify your task.
