In this episode of the Office Show, you'll see how three very creative storytellers use Microsoft Office to realize their ideas. Joannie Stangeland uses OneNote 2010 and a digital pen to capture inspiration and organize her poetry. David Salaguinto uses a Visio template to create comics for his popular "Office Comic." And we'll show you how acclaimed author Jennifer Egan uses PowerPoint to create fiction. She actually wrote a chapter entirely in PowerPoint for her novel "A Visit From the Goon Squad."
Poet Stangeland's daytime gig is writing help articles for Microsoft Word, so you can find her work on our Word blog. She also hosts a special video series, " A Writer's Guide to Office," that's all about using Office for people who are serious about good writing. You can also find more great tips on OneNote at Michael C. Oldenburg's blog.
Salaguinto is the author/artist of the popular "Office Comics" blog, and he's got some special things coming, inspired by this edition of "The Office Show."
And you can find out more about Jennifer Egan on jenniferegan.com, and you can buy the book directly at Amazon.com. You can see her PowerPoint chapter on her website, but do buy the book. It's a powerful chapter on it's own, but seen in the context of the whole story it's a real mind-blower.
Don't forget to check out her 10 Tips for storytelling in PowerPoint which she wrote especially for readers of the Office Blog.

I've been thinking about getting an e-pen, so it's awesome to see one in action. The Capturx is HUGE though... Joannie looks like she has to lug around a giant whiteboard marker!
