Trying to get back on track

I’ve fallen behind on regular posting here for a few weeks. Mea culpa. I’ll try to fix that. My future plans – some dreams not yet a reality – include: guest posts (I’ve invited a few people; now I’ll see if that pays off) an update on my Blogroll (some of my links have been…Continue Reading “Trying to get back on track”

Scrivener for Blogging, part 2

My first attempt to write this disappeared — which is why there was a long delay between the last post and this one — so I’ll write this over from scratch.

Better Novel Outliner?

Note that I’m not trying to start a war of words, just asking for opinions: 3 years ago I bought Liquid Story Binder. In October, I plan to get Scrivener for Windows. Both of them enable you to gather together all your character sketches, research and outline for a story in one place. Both offer…Continue Reading “Better Novel Outliner?”
