Importing WordPress Blog to FastPencil Writing Tool

In order to import your WordPres Blog, you must export an XML file and then convert it into a format our system can read. The XML typically will contain all of your posts from the beginning of time as well as images/pictures. However, this is not always guaranteed and manual work may be involved, such as manually adding in images, re-sizing images, re-arranging text, etc.
