No Longer Content

I was content for a while to use Google Docs. There’s nothing wrong with it. The app is really strong and does what you need it to do. That was until I found myself without an internet connection this week. Womp womp womp. (Incidentally, if you need a Chrome app that does still work for writing off line, WriteBox does the job. Get it here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/writebox/bbehjmjchoiaglkeboicbgkpfafcmhij?hl=en ) This was a pleasant reminder of just how much I love Scrivener. All the tools it has available and just how useful it is for creating fiction. Yes, you can create fiction in Docs. Or Word.  Or Notepad. Scrivener just handles it so much better. So this was a pleasant reminder that I should use Scrivener more often. Don’t be content with adequate writing tools. Besides, not having the internet at your finger tips definitely does limit your distractions. I knocked out a short story in record time while I was offline.

Crunch Time

It’s crunch time lately in my neck of the woods. Not in the sense that I have a deadline I have to meet or the world will end, but rather the sense that I have a ton of stuff going on and writing time is getting a little crunched. Smooshed. Flattened. Pick your favorite. Not much else to add at the moment. I’m still scrawling words across the page here or there. I’ll have more news soon. As always…
