worth the price of admission

I had the sudden suspicion that Scrivener might let me put both my synopsis and the chapter I was working on up in a split screen, and lo, within a few seconds I’d figured out how to do so. That feature alone is worth the price of admission. I’ve also got an obviously-increasingly-useful sidebar going on with research materials filling up, and find a sort of unholy glee in the idea that it’s all just right there to flip through instead of digging through browser bookmarks or random text files.

Yeah. I’m a convert, and I still don’t know how to use 95% of the features. Imagine how dangerous I’ll be if I ever learn that stuff!

Also, this little book I’ve started may or may not amuse anyone else but I’m not yet 1K in and it’s amusing the hell out of me, which is a nice feeling.

  1. Beginnings are always great times for me. A lot of writers say they hate starting out, but to me the blank page is like a hill with fresh powder, and my skis are waxed and ready to go.

    Then I get to the muddled middle, where I hate the story and the story hates me and every step is an uphill climb where I slide back three steps and who am I trying to kid anyway.

    That it happens to everybody is only a minor reassurance. It’s hell going through it—and when I finish a book, I can’t wait to go through it again.
