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 itSeth 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.
