This is a very late post. There are reasons why, the main being I am exhausted!
Today has been one hell of a day. The planets must have been aligned just right for all the havoc that was wreaked.
My children, usually very well behaved (HA!) decided today was the day they would test just how much stress Mommy can endure. They almost broke me.
It must have taken a lot out of Little Man though, because a miracle occurred. He not only went right to sleep when I put him down for his nap today, he also went right to sleep when I put him down for bed tonight! That NEVER happens! It’s usually a fight to get him to go to sleep. I guess hugging SpongeBob is his warm milk.
I’ll take it.
I didn’t get much (any) writing done today. Instead, I spent the day cleaning the house. It wasn’t so terrible that it needed it, but Hubs asked if I would, and with his stress level lately, I felt it the least I could do was oblige him. Besides, it gave me an excuse to listen to my music, which I can only do in the kitchen… (There is no reason why, it just is and you should accept that.)
Okay, on to something else…
Well, I still do! I use it for my WIP, my blog, and my short stories. The ease of use is wonderful, and now that I’m in the .26 version, a lot of the kinks have been worked out. (At one point in time, I couldn’t remove highlights from my text, but that’s been fixed… That’s beside the point though.)
Here is a screen capture of Scrivener:
On the left hand side is all the files that are a part of my project. The text is something I typed up for insight into the main antagonist of my story, Greggory. On the right, is the area for the synopsis, the meta-data, and notes. The synopsis part I use only for the Act file folders, but not for any particular text file. I do use the Notes section a lot though. It comes in handy for when I need to check something out when I go through revisions.
Anyways, I’m looking forward to when the beta testing is over and all the kinks have been worked out. The program will cost only $45. It is something I would definitely recomend to anyone out there wanting to find a better way to write than with just plain old Word.
What about you? What writing program do you use and would you recomend it to others?
