Re: One way to promote your writing - Steven Pressfield

Pressfield can do this, because his work is already well known, and he already has a platform. The War of Art is a fantastic book and most artists/writers should read it, provided it doesn't become gospel for them. For the emerging writer, this video series strategy is just more time away from writ...

Re: Buying Scrivener on Mac - any difference between buying on website or in AppStore?

Didn't mean this to get derailed into a keyboard thread, sorry. Suffice to say, I have good reasons for needing a Hardware keyboard and the stickers/keytops/software solution causes other issues. Like I said, I used to do that thirty years ago and went hardware because it was the best solution. Goo...

Re: Buying Scrivener on Mac - any difference between buying on website or in AppStore?

How about something like this? https://kbcovers.com/dvorak-keyboard-cover/ Or, just a set of keyboard stickers? I realise you may have excellent reasons for avoiding thses solutions, but if so, I'm curious as to what they might be. (I knew a writer who wrote in Cyrillic on a Mac with the use of a k...

Check the Zengobi user forum. There are quite a few examples from teachers, scientists, deisgners, etc as they discuss their issues.

Re: One way to promote your writing - Steven Pressfield

And it can be a circular issue, as well. Contributing to non-fiction books written by others, collaborating with other authors, and writing your own books can also be a way to establish your expertise in those topics. Thus the actual act of writing helps solidify your credentials. So thank you for ...

Why procrastination can help fuel creativity

A new reason to procrastinate and not feel guilty. 8) Excerpt: There's strong evidence that creative insights need time to percolate – and that the right amount of distraction may be key to innovation. If the history of creativity teaches us anything, it is that great ideas often come when we’re lea...

Re: One way to promote your writing - Steven Pressfield

Non-fiction marketing is also completely different from fiction marketing. You can effectively market non-fiction books by establishing yourself as an expert on whatever the subject of the book is and being visible in communities that care about that topic. And, as an expert, lectures, consulting s...

Re: If I don't update the beta before it expires....

The problem I had with the RC version - I was using RC18 and didn't write for a few days due to having my Covid vaccine and feeling like crap afterwards. The next time I went to write, RC18 had expired and 19 was available. RC18 wouldn't open at all (so I could install the update from there as I no...

Are we able to actually see the world around us as it really is?

With some people claiming the earth is flat, and other such controversies about the shape/size of the universe in mind, watch this video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBap_Lp-0oc

See if it doesn’t give you a new perspective. :)

Re: Seeking project advice on writing 2 versions of the same book in 2 languages

I'm with Lunk. When ever I have my writings translated into another language (Russian, German, Spanish, French and Croatian) I always send them a finished product.
