Ordered this weekend.  The reviews sound like the book would nicely compliment a couple of stalled side-projects of mine.

The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next. If you do that every day … you will never be stuck. Always stop while you are going good and don’t think about it or worry about it until you start to write the next day. That way your subconscious will work on it all the time. But if you think about it consciously or worry about it you will kill it and your brain will be tired before you start.

Using Google Voice for transcribed voice memos

I used to use Jott for recording voice memos when out and about, driving, etc. The Voice Memo app released with iPhone OS 3.0 is pretty slick, but I don’t use it because it’s too easy to forget to go back into the app and listen to the recordings (and emailing them can’t be automated).

This Google Voice setup is really nice since it will email you the transcribed recording and, if you use GMail, you can enable the Google Voice player (in Labs) to listen to them right there - useful if the transcribing is frakked.

I just followed these steps. The final step didn’t make sense (the GV interface must have changed), so below is a screenshot of what I have. Afterwards, just create a quickly accessible entry to your GV number on your phone and you’re good to go.
