• NaNoWriMo and Scrivener

    The first time I heard of Scrivener was probably last year or earlier this year and I think I liked the idea of it, but never really researched it due to being busy or just really into my writing. (I am one of those people who really don’t like straying from things I know and like.) But, since signing up for NaNoWriMo I have decided to give Scrivener a try. There is a nice trial run for those who are doing NaNoWriMo this year – as far as I know – and can try the program until December 7th. Why not, right? Well, I am giving it whirl and am excited to see if I like it or not. I have high hopes. May my hopes not be dashed! 

    I will write a brief review on what I liked/ understood about it and maybe things I wish were changed – if the case may be – in December and will let you know if I purchased the program.

    So, what is your favorite writing software and why do you like it?

    Until next time, keep creating.

  • The best place to write.

    Where is the best place to write? The best place to reflect and hone in on your inner creator? At a coffee shop? A library? At a park?

    My “best place” to write at the moment is at night, with no lights on, the TV running in the background, or listening to music that is inspiring me in the moment, sitting in my favourite corner of the couch, and my little fingers typing away on my keyboard. Mmmm… bliss.

    Honestly, finding your favourite place to write is a personal choice. Everyone is different. We are meant to be different. Different is fantastic. That’s what makes everything so interesting. 

    Venture forth and find your “best place”, whether it be in bed, at a desk, at a library, or snuggled on the couch, just write. Keep trying new spots, whether they are around your house or around your neighborhood, just try until your soul says ‘yes, this is a good spot’. Sometimes it will change. Just go with the flow of life. New writing spots will emerge.
