I am a college student and have a crazy schedule involving a child and about 20 hours of commute time a week.

I would like to find a way to write documents on my kindle while I am offline (say, on the bus), and be able to easily sync those documents to Microsoft Word on my home desktop.

BTW, I've already purchased a bluetooth keyboard.

Barbara, there are several apps in the Amazon Appstore that let you create (simple) Word documents. My favorite is

OfficeSuite Pro

although at $14.99, it may not be the least expensive. I'm not connected with that app except as a user.

When you say "easily sync", it depends a great deal on what you mean there. Syncing to me would suggest that I edit it on my Fire, and then open it on my desktop, and it's the same. I'm not aware of an easy way to do that, but it isn't difficult to e-mail a document from your Fire to a place where you could retrieve it on your desktop.

I do find a Bluetooth keyboard a big help in writing long form.

Thanks. I was looking at that app, but want to be sure that it can edit and save offline. By 'sync easily' I meant---well it would be much easier to sync automatically, I'd be willing to use the usb cord if I have to. I find emailing annoying for some reason though.

Will OfficeSuite Pro for sure work offline then?

Yes, definitely. I use it that way myself. :)

What about blogging? Can you write and post text and photos from a kindle fire?
