Instead of posting a practice today, I’m going through your entries for the Show Off writing contest. However, you can always do one of our other recent practices. You could write about cats or solve a murder mystery or make a Pinterest prompt.
Also, check out this review I wrote about Scrivener, the truly awesome word processor for writers. Here’s a teaser:
When I first starting using Scrivener, I was skeptical. I thought, What can this do that I can’t already do in Microsoft Word? I’m a true cheap skate, and the idea of spending $45 on a program that was basically the same as a program I already had seemed silly.
However, I couldn’t argue with the people who recommended it. Seth Harwood, a novelist I admire, said, “I use Scrivener for writing my novels and a MacBook. I used to use Word, but literally I can’t imagine how I’d write a novel without Scrivener now… There’s nothing that can match Scrivener’s chapter view for seeing where the book has gone and is going.”
So I bought it.
And I’m not going back to Microsoft Word any time soon.
