And when I say old, I mean OLD.


I wrote a book, well short book (50000 words) back in the mid to late 80's on a Mac 512. I can't recall the word program that I used but then later I tried to convert it to a word document on a PowerMac 6500. Didn't work so I tried on a PC using Windows and it failed also. I eventually found a word program called Write Now which I still have and haven't tried, but no longer have a Mac and was hoping someone would know if such an old program could be understood by a newer one.  And how to go about it. Thanks for any suggestions.


I am retiring in another 5 months and thought it would be nice to self-publish this book.
