Linux Scrivener and NaNoWriMo

Afternoon all, For the first time this year, I'm planning to do NaNoWriMo purely from my Linux Mint 17 laptop with Scrivener, rather than using my desktop Mac/Windows boxes. I'll be keeping the files in DropBox, and will be online most of the time, and have a nightly Crashplan backup. Any reason, gi...

Re: Will I have to pay again?

I've been playing over the weekend with the latest beta on Mint Linux, and as noted, it works fine so far. I too have licenses for Mac and Windows, though from next week, I'll pretty much only be on a Linux laptop (no, this isn't some "I'm disgusted with [insert OS here]!!" thing, it's jus...

Re: Scrivener Affiliate Program

I feel downright bad writing this. Dirty.

That said, let me just get it done:

If there's an affiliate programme, I suspect 'we' should declare that in any reviews, that we would earn something, potentially, from a click through?

Re: Sigil epub Editor

Well played KB! That would be amazing also. I've tried making epubs by editing the XML in BBEdit, by playing with the frankly horrible Stanza Desktop App and a few other ways. Sigil is very nice. If Scrivener can do this nicely via templates (or whatever) then I might actually go for 2.0 - I was pla...

Sigil epub Editor

Just an app note I snagged from Andy Ihnatko on Macbreak weekly - Sigil - a very decent epub editor if you're trying to get some story online in a mobile format and so. I'm actually quite liking it to be honest, and like Andy might publish a short story via it. http://code.google.com/p/sigil/ http:/...

Branching

I thought instead of coming up with a practically useful idea here, I'd come up with a vague concept I can't articulate within my own head, and try to write it down: Is it possible, or even desireable, to be able to mark a point in your work, and branch it, so you're writing into a branch instead of...

Re: Dan Simmons Writing Well

Thanks. I think I liked it because he comes out with blunt comments like that, (and a few passages on a dislike for point of view switching in The Da Vinci Code) which many dance around for fear of offending. At least he voices that opinion. For his books, specifically Hyperion, I enjoyed the first ...

Re: Good Audiobooks?

I got into audio books at Audible about a year ago, though I've been given a few on tape over the years. The Audible to MP3 player/iPhone/whatever model is very simple to get on with, and their new 'enhanced' format (64kbps AAC with DRM) is excellent,though their 'Format 4' (32kbps MP3 / DRM) is als...

Dan Simmons Writing Well

As I recently became a fan of Dan Simmons (sorry, it took me a while to get to Hyperion), I was drifting around his website, and had a look through his Writing Well columns: http://www.dansimmons.com/writing_welll/archive/writing_index.htm (I'm not sure if the 'welll' typo is an in-joke or not). Any...

Re: What is your favorite word processor to use with Scrivener?

I think this has been noted before but... when not in Scrivener, I generally use BBEdit, as I mainly need just the text for digital distribution. I barely use a word processor now, and then only at work, and that (Word 2007) gets sent to PDF for distribution, so even then, no .doc and no paper. I al...
