I’ve been experimenting with Pandoc, a tool for converting between document formats. At work I worked out how to convert from Markdown into Word for automating a number of imports. At home I’ve started working on getting some cool Word templates for self-publishing of Tech and RPG books. It… works really well and I’m enjoying the heck out of the challenge.

I, however, am not very good at presentation/ styling the documents. Has anyone got any good Word templates for tech/ RPG books? Or, failing that, has anyone got any PDFs/ links to documents that I can look at for inspiration in creating my self-published documents from?


I’m getting started on one of my long-dormant projects. Writing a tongue-in-check resource book, using a slice of von Explaino’s “Look At Things Through The Lens Of Something Else.” Participating in the Tech Misfits group on Facebook has helped me keep focus (thank you) and I’ve finished a first-ish draft of 13,823 words.

I’m very happy with this progress. Fingers cross momentum can keep up.
