Re: Professional editing services?

I wouldn't waste your money on such services because if you have the ability to put together a story, you already have the basic skills to edit your own material. Spend that money on better writing tools, office supplies, or a couple of celebratory drinks after the project is done.

Re: Big ending or wrap it up??

I'd say the choice of ending would depend on the story you are writing. Is the story a standalone or do you want to leave the potential for sequels? I love adventure stories so I would say give it a triumphant ending that wraps up most if not all of the current plot elements but perhaps introduce so...

Re: It's Not Plagiarism. It's "Repurposing."

Most ideas out there aren't new but every execution of those ideas are so long as they aren't directly lifted from the other page and fitted with a new name. I've killed many a past writing project because as I worked on it, I was reminded too much of something else I had read somewhere. However, th...

Re: Does Alcohol Improve Your Writing?

I tried drinking while writing and it just didn't work for me. My typing suffered and the ideas came out less and less to the point where I ended up saying 'screw it' and just passing out. Coffee and a cigarette in the ashtray are my staples.

Re: My Feedback on Scrivener for Windows

Thanks, TR,

I'm willing to wait for it but since my original post, I've figured out how to do what I need with the existing setup so it's no big deal. I still love how robust the program is and it's a joy to work with.

Re: Windows version?

I would gladly purchase the product once a Windows version is available. It seems the perfect complement to Scrivener and this writer would love to have a handy way to diagram the passage of time in stories.

My Feedback on Scrivener for Windows

I just got Scrivener for Windows about a day or two ago and I have to say that I am already seeing a definite improvment in how my writing projects are being organized. I used to do my preplanning through the use of associated folders but over time, they would become so ponderous and my time was tak...
