Like a ghost from my past...

For most of my adult life I've been a segmented sleeper. After first putting head to pillow I'll usually sleep for two or three hours or so, then find myself fully awake for another hour or two before falling back to sleep for another two or three hours.

During that insomnia break during the middle of my night I'll fill my time in any of a number of ways. Sometimes I may switch on the AM radio by my bed and listen to a talk station, or I may grab a book and read for awhile, but most often I'll move over to my computer and hop onto the Internet to see whatever there is to see.

Up in the middle of last night I was browsing messages on Fosstodon.org when I came upon a reference to Wordgrinder, some kind of software I'd never heard of. Curious, I did a search and it to be like a ghost from my past. A very good ghost!

Many, many years ago the first word processor I really fell in love with was WordStar. And now I found Wordgrinder, a free and open source and VERY no-frills writing tool designed for the GNU/Linux Operating System. Downloading and installing it and opening it up I was... so happy.

Oh, yeah. I'm going to spend some time playing with this!
