Re: On Your Honor (NiaD X)

Blue AND Red, what an honour! Now I just have to check which narrative I managed to subvert the most. (Can I have my 2020 cup-o-pencils now please?)

Re: NiaD X

Now I'm anxious to see whether Otis Johnson makes it to President with Angela Bennett his pick for VP and Tom Bennett his FLOTUS. Or maybe that's not the point of the story... or the genre... Never mind, I'll get my X badge and that's all that matters.

Thanks Rog for another enervating Saturday.

Re: NiaD X

OK finished at 11:30pm in Australia. I hope I haven't subverted the story too much by promoting Tom Bennett to eminence grise. Note to Rog. Can we give US politics a rest for a while? I'm really sick of having to cut Trump out of my first draft. Next time, how about setting it in Romania, or Tibet, ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

Yep, the typos! the typos! I knew I should have asked my wife to read it before I pushed the SEND button.

BTW, I added my coffee cup, but I can't get it onto the same line. Could someone give me advice on the coding?

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

BTW, I added a minor character named Prof Roger Pigfender, a befuddled scientist. Will I be excised from the final compendium?

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

Who is Roberta? Did she work in security at the White House? Was she involved in an Apocalypse? I can hardly wait to find out what was really going on! Roberta is Speaker of the House (aka Nancy Pelosi) and third in line after POTUS and VPOTUS. In my version, a real Mata Hari. She doesn’t appear in...

After all the work Roberta has put into seducing her way to the top, I just hope she's not killed off by some spoilsport in a later chapter. Who is Roberta?

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

My chapter is in. 4,200 words in a leisurely 10 hours, much of it with secret plans of the White House open on my desktop. Now for the red wine I've been denying myself.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

So nice to be in Australia where the timing is so much more civilised than the UK and daylight saving gives us an additional hour. At 10 am I read my brief over coffee and a croissant (all produced with copious electricity) and now I'm off! Best wishes to all my collaborators and special thanks to R...

Re: How to Remove Hyper-Link Underlines in Scrivener 3.0?

To do this, you would Select All in the editor (Cmd-A) and then use Edit > Remove Link. This will remove all links from the selected text. (Note that in the current version, this command will not be available if there are any comments in the selected text - this will be fixed in the next update.) A...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

I just finished my first novel and I think I'm ready for this challenge at last. Please add me to the list and give me a task brimming with action, romance, agony and recipes.
