Scrivener, the Final Installment · 1:34am Saturday

I realized that I've left my audience hanging about my writing tools. Sorry. Yes, I am still writing. I am 47,000 words into Ms. Glimmer and the Do-nothing Prince—written exclusively on Scrivener.

Scrivener vs Dropbox Sync Wars! · 2:47am June 7th

I've been writing using Scrivener for over two weeks now. Like many products, it has its own unique issues like cursor selection on the iPad and iPhone failing in all sorts of unique and special ways. (I can work around it easily, so I will report it in due time.) There is a learning curve compared to using a WYSIWYG editor like Pages, Word, or Google Docs. You should commit yourself to the tutorial that comes with it. If you need an integrated development environment for writing novels,

Scrivener and Dropbox Sync · 1:16am May 21st

I am doing a bear tasting and a blog posting. Forgive if this post is slurred. I didn't drop my phone.. As Lightweight. Definitely drink. Wife drove. Made a voice recording because I need this as a write. First time drunk. Need to add I'm 63 so this is landmark. The El Cap IPA and Firefall Ted are spektaculer.

Scrivener, iCloud, and Me · 2:47am May 18th

A scrivener is a writer. Like me—though I prefer author or novelist. Here, I'm discussing capital-S Scrivener, the manuscript authoring package available for Windows, Mac, and iOS. First, context.

An Author's Life · 11:54pm April 22nd

I finished up the Enforcerverse, so if you like a completed tale, click the embeds below. That said, I am now without a writing project. Feels weird. Feels very weird. Like I am caught in a void in-between where I was and where I will be. (That's a reference to the frigid cold of in-between

1st Person Narrative and the Telling of Starlight's Story · 11:17pm April 10th

As the friendship lessons and self-realizations roll in (last two chapters!), it's time to talk about 1st person narrative. Starlight Glimmer is telling this story. I am just a conduit. 1st person narrative restricts story-telling unerringly to the POV of the narrator, again Starlight Glimmer. What

The Ultimate Fight · 11:44pm April 1st

Expect the ultimate fight and friendship lesson! Starlight Glimmer will... okay, that's a spoiler! Starlight in chapter 37 has good reason to believe she won't survive, and if she loses eternal darkness may fall. This is what it is like to fight beyond your capabilities at the best of your

Sumimasen - すみません · 6:34am March 31st

That's Japanese for saying I'm sorry. The language and culture makes this the sincerest way I can say that. I truly wanted to stay on schedule, to release on Monday, then Tuesday, and now Wednesday, but I've been doing a lot of chatting about follow-on stories implied by the situations in the new
