One day in March, 2018, I woke up feeling pretty good about the day ahead of me. Coffee, a little light internet and then a good two to three thousand words on my book. That was the plan, anyway. About three quarters into my coffee, my screen turned to black and white vertical lines and became […]

Scrivener 3

scrivener 3 for macOS, stolen without shame from https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/overview

With much fanfare and a website overhaul, Scrivener 3 was released to the world yesterday, November 20th, 2017. It’s a big update, and you should really read the manual (RTFM! specifically Appendix E) before committing to it.

Interview: Freefall author Felix R. Savage

Today I have with me science fiction author, Felix R. Savage who generously agreed to sit down with me for a virtual interview.

Hello. I’m afraid I don’t know how much time we have, so I must be brief. There’s a new science fiction anthology out, called Explorations: War.

I have a couple of blog posts percolating, chiefly my next Scrivener Howto, but brain time is presently very precious. I have started work on Book 4, albeit a few days behind. We have a new dog, Zeke, who demands a lot of attention. And that’s is all right by me. We’re learning to cope […]

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.

Trajectory Book 1 reaches v3.0!

Today I put the finishing touches on a new set of edits for Trajectory Book 1 and sent it forth into the cloud. This is probably the biggest update since v2.0, which was itself a fairly major milestone in the book’s existence. I can say with total certainty that today it’s a better book than […]

Book 3 Cover Update

(View featured image, Sol 1381 Panorama full size on flickr) Ok, yesterday’s “cover tease” post was pretty light on details. I probably could have added some content but I was in a hurry and wanted to post something. It was time. Anyway, long-time pal and internet funny guy, @dolske guessed that the image was constructed […]
