As you may know (Or maybe you don't. In that case, read last week's posts. I can't make ya. But, it don't cost nuthin'), I'm thinking of writing a book about my time in the Navy. I was inspired to write it after I wrapped up a week's worth of blah-blah-blah about my Naval career from the 1970s to the 2000s (I still don't know what to call the first decade of the 21st century).
Anyway, I'd like to write it pretty much as those posts were. In other words, a lot of pictures interspersed with loads of witty banter (or stuff written by me). I'm thinking pictures are really important for people who don't have a lot of time to read. Or can't read. Like people from New Jersey.
Plus, having pictures allows me to make up an awful lot of stuff.
My question is: do any of you know the best software program I can use to make this happen? I know I can insert pictures using Microsoft Word, but I'm not sure that would be "publisher-friendly".
A friend of mine with whom I served (please note my snooty use of the word "whom") in the Navy (and who-whom?-will figure fairly prominently in the book. I'll change his name. But, HE'LL know) suggested I use Microsoft Publisher. But, I'm not really familiar with that.
I guess I could use Photo-Shop to put goat heads on people, but that would probably get tiresome. Unless you're into goats. I won't judge.
So, I go out to you, faithful followers (or people who stumbled on this site accidentally thinking "Penwasser" was German for "porn"): what's your suggestion?
I suppose you could say, "Forget the whole thing, you no-talent hack."
But, I hope you don't.
