    Ally, you can try this http://inkscape.org/index.php?lang=en

    I've never used it as I don't work with vectors, but it seems pretty decent, and it's free.

    Grr. I can't figure out how to open my novel. I know how I want the beginning to go, just can't figure out a good opening spot. >.<;

    Enjoy your cake, Ari!

    And now I'm going to a potluck open house. I'll be back in a couple of hours, probably.

    Thanks Ari! How is cake?!

    I think I'm going to start with a humorous opening, instead of going straight into conflict like the original opening was.

    And have fun, BG!

    Ari, the colors you chose remind me of Macaroni and Cheese.

    Or maybe I'm that hungry...
