Using Scrivener, once again

There comes a point when you’re (I’m) typing a long comment somewhere and a simple thought suddenly springs up: I should be posting this to my own blog!

Well, I’ll link to it instead. Author Sherwood Smith is working on a switch from her old word processing program to Scrivener, and I thought I would share the (rather simplistic) way that I use it. It’s not exactly in-depth, but it’s what I’ve managed to kludge together from all the bells and whistles the program contains.

Anyway, check it out. If you use Scrivener or are thinking of switching to it, there might be something useful there.

Also, if you haven’t read Sherwood’s work, I liked Inda but she has newer stuff, too.

Yes! People should buy lots of her books.

Have you used Scapple? I'm playing with it and think it might be helpful. :)

I love Sherwood's work and am ESPECIALLY madly passionately in love with Lhind. :) Am hoping her scrivener will have a Lhind the Thief II file... :)

I just bought a copy of Scapple a few weeks ago. It looks like fun but I'm hoping they have a way to place bookmarks so we can zoom from on place to another.

Ah I am not to that point yet - am just poking around with it at the moment, moving things around. Much to learn yet! :)
