Writing with Scrivener Part 1

Or, how I stopped pantsing and got down with outlining. This week, I’m going to start the first in a series of posts about Scrivener, an invaluable tool for writing fiction. Maybe you’ve wanted to try or have done National Novel Writing Month and wanted to up your game. Maybe you write novels or screenplays and have heard… Read More »

Book 3, aka The Thing That Would Not End, has now shipped to my very brave editor for dissection. A select few pre-beta readers have also been given copies to pore over and study while I quietly hyperventilate in the corner. It’s fine. Once it’s been edited and I have my first round of feedback, I’ll be sending… Read More »
