Re: NiaD X

Ah well, tanyareed, at least you have the interesting experience of seeing how others wrote in response to the same brief as yours.

Re: NiaD X

I wonder would it be too great a technical challenge to do a Graphic Novel In A Day some year.

Re: NiaD X

Major sympathy, that's such a pain in the ass, for the internet demons to snatch away your chapter in mid-flight. You absolutely certain? Have you searched all four PDFs for a phrase from your chapter?

More fun than a bucket of monkeys. I'm now cross-eyed with exhaustion, but happy!

Re: NiaD X

What's the genre this year? A gender-bending cowboy zombie fantasy set in space?

Word frequency for a specific word?

I know you can check which words are a specific tic of a writer by number of uses (cmd-shift-option-s, then the Compiled tab and a little drop-down menu called Word Frequency on the bottom left of this dialogue box). But is there any way to click on a particular word and see how frequently it's used...

Finding date a project was created

Is there any way to find the date when a project was created, in Scrivener for Mac?

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

This is fantastic! Best of luck to the lad. I do a Skype video chat with my 13-year-old grandson most days. On Saturday I showed him our brief and chatted to him about the NOVEL IN A DAY. I suggested that whilst he is in 'lockdown' he could also write a novel, and we could check up each other's writ...

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

Horribly, I managed to completely forget to write my chapter. Grovelling, horrified apologies to Rog and all the other chapter writers. Hiding from Covid-19, in lockdown for the last three weeks, has robbed me of my brain.

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

I'm in!

One request: tell people how many chapters there are, and which chapter they're writing. Last time, I got instructions that made me think mine was, perhaps, Chapter 2 of 20, and wrote it accordingly. If I'd known it was a much later chapter, I would have changed the end of the one I wrote.

Hey, Maelduin... you took part in NiaD7 too! You can use 7-9.png in your signature!


Couldn't see 7-9! Can you send me a link?

Re: Altering numbered lists

Eventually I just deleted all the numbers. Having done that, and numbered it again using Scrivener, I discovered that there were tabs before and after all the numbers for some reason. Deleted those and it works fine now. Or, probably, will till I need to add more entities to it.
