Yesterday was rainy here in New Jersey, much like today. In between snippets of this and that, including our job here as an on-site security team, I managed to find time to devote to my project. I can actually call it a WIP, because for the first time since its conception years ago I am truly developing it.
A while back I researched different writing software programs and settled on Scrivener. Although I am still learning my way about with it, using it is becoming easier. Practice, practice, practice! I do like the corkboard feature for notes and reference, among its other features.
Having some of my project “living” in Open Office, I am transcribing it all into Scrivener as a working platform. You might think that redundant and, yes, I could copy and paste. Initially that was my intention, but I found that annoying and, well, boring. Now I am typing in my OO pages into Scrivener. In my heyday as a medical transcriptionist, my typing speed was 100+ WPM and remains not too shabby, so this does not take long. Additionally, as I retype my original work, I am “reliving” the words and my work becomes fresh to me again.
Additional sections and editing/tweaking ad nauseum is in my future, but at least I can honestly say that I have a WIP!
Whoohoo! That’s a cool feeling!
More later, but that’s it for now! Hey, I kept this post short!
Thanks for stopping by! Now go write!
