The weekend is here again.Where does the time disappear to . I have had a semi productive week but got distracted with my search for a writing programme to help me get more organised.
I really like the look of Scrivener but at the minute it is only for MAC and i need windows. A windows version will be coming out this year (no date announced as yet) but me being Little Miss Impatient i wanted something to use now!
Although you are able to download a public Beta trial version to test. But be warned it still has development problems
Yesterday was for the first time in months a kids free day.Was i writing?No.
I was a bit naughty and just spent the whole day playing with two writing software programmes you can download for free off the Internet called
Storybox is free to use but you will get pop ups requesting you to help pay for the running costs.
So far i prefer storybox.I have got the hang of most things on there but there are still a couple of things i am not sure about. Give all these systems a look.
Change of subject but it is funny how you get inspiration in the strangest places. Yesterday morning i was sitting in the doctors office waiting to go in but had forgotten to bring a book, or a note pad and did not fancy reading one of the magazines on offer about the latest diet or who is sleeping with who.
So there i sat bored looking around the room when i noticed a large framed photo on the wall of a deep bottomless black hole in a glacier.It had a caption that said "Who lives here?"
A light bulb popped on in my head. What if a mythical evil creature was frozen in a glacier that then started to melt? Damn, there i sat with no note pad or pen.Broke the writers rule No.1. But now i have great ideas for my next book :)
