Well, perhaps I am describing myself as an old dog, but I haven’t got the energy to look up a nicer proverb *sniggers*
I spent much of last week working through the Scrivener course, the one I told you about, remember? Still Struggling With Scrivener
Well, what can I say… I’m loving it!
I finished Lesson 5 yesterday and what I’ve learnt so far is:
How to create a new project.
I’ve learned how to create new folders in the Binder section.
Discovered how handy the Synopsis on the Index Cards will be.
Found out how to merge files into one document.
Practiced importing other documents into Scrivener.
Customised Labels and Statuses.
So far I am over the moon with the possibilities this software will give me. I especially like the idea that I can colour code each chapter so that I can see at a glance (all the files in the binder) who’s POV I’m using.
So I haven’t exactly done much in the way of writing the last few days (apart from some prompts for the 30 Day Writing Challenge) and today I’m off up to London to meet a fellow blogger/writer for lunch. Tomorrow I’m giving a blogging lesson (ha ha ha) to a writer friend and then on Saturday I’m off to a book signing to meet the lovely Jo Phillips *squeals with excitement*
A busy, but exciting week! Perhaps I’ll actually get some writing done too
