I’m still around and kicking. It has been a hectic last couple of years with the college courses I’ve been taking. I think the worst is just about over as I am beginning to see a lull in the middle of the term which may give me that time I need to start writing once again. Next month I will be a senior with four more terms until I graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree. Then I will have one year left as I seek my Masters of Science in Accounting.
I think my writing style may have changed for the better. We will see as time progresses and those WIPs move closer to completion. Then there will be the edits and hopefully, I will have a few Beta Readers by then to tell me what they like and dislike about the stories so I can maybe tweak the storyline a little bit.
In fact, today I located my files for Insane Desires and the Lady from Hayata. It took me almost an hour to track down the correct file for Insane Desires. I knew I had quite a bit done, more than all the other files were saying.
I think I will be moving away from using Scrivener. I have found the software distracting, and I can get more done when I am using Word.
Scrivener is a pretty cool program, but it has too many bells and whistles to play with, and I always am more productive with Word.
The Writopedia word counter meters are not working at this time. Both books are right around 33% done.
NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. I may decide to sit this one out and focus on finishing at least one of the WIPs this year.
How about you? What is your preferred writing software?
