Learning more about emacs

This Woodnotes guide doesn't even scratch the surface of the power of emacs, but for the writer or author interested in getting down to work, this should be more than enough to allow you to find and use the commands that you need most. There is far, far more about emacs than what's covered here. For example, emacs includes calendar functionality (even the Mayan calendar!), games (even Tetris!), a calculator, a datebook/planner, a fun psychiatrist, and more. If you want to, you can use emacs to read and compose your email, surf newsgroups, and so on. These things may not be immediately useful to writers, but if you decide you like emacs dive in and explore: it's a powerful tool.
