Thanks for all the suggestions - I'm trying most of them! I had already tried
using a glove (stolen from the darkroom), although I haven't cut the fingers
out. Wearing it sure does make it easier to move your hand across without it
sticking to the surface of the tablet. The "gripster" on the pen DOES make it
less tiring to hold, and I may even have better control with that on. It only
fits in it's holder upside down now though! I think if I keep plugging along,
it will eventually get easier - I hope....

Thanks again for all your help!
