The joys of writing and the awesomeness of Scrivener
So I have begun to consolidate my notes and develop my outline further than basic ideas in my new 6000 word story. Like I said before I am going to branch out and forward from my brainstorming for The Man with the Devil’s Matchbook. And it is starting out beautifully. This is going to be a great short story to start out with. And hopefully I will be able to write more than one in a series of them. I am very happy that it is all working out so well. The best part of it all is that with the shorter format and more condensed timeline I am trying to develop I will be able to figure out my workflow better for writing overall. How to write everyday, regardless of where I am. How to get it all consolidated into Scrivener. And how to get from writing to editing to rewriting to final draft. Not to mention being able to share all of the ups and downs of it all with all of you. The coolest parts for me in all of this is that I will be getting to try out so many different techniques and tricks and finally will get to play around and really put Scrivener through its paces.
So expect some posts in the near future about writing shorter fiction. Not to mention tips and tricks for Scrivener from the novice point of view. (If you haven’t checked out Scrivener and you are a writer… well simply put you either have never heard of it or I have no idea why you haven’t.)
