Re: New template for a book of short stories

Last post in this thread was back in 2012 so this exercise feels like a time machine trip. I slogged through this thread until I found the template and got the thing open on my MacBook Pro 2015 laptop, my trusty writing workhorse. The template appears entirely straightforward since I've used Scriven...

Re: Music for writing

I love music and listen often in different modes. I've written about music listening quite a lot. Many of the posts in this category are relatable to me.

Re: How To Post New Topic?

Thanks, Keith. I will make myself content with not going higher. Hopefully, my posts will get found. I did post already at the level of Using Scrivener and that's a suggestion or two if you're interested. I love the program and will try to make my suggestions useful.

Re: Learn-by-doing: Scrivener A la Carte

Jim, I greatly appreciate your kind offering of tips based on your experience. I see the wisdom in what you're saying. Turns out, this is really not terribly different from other complex software I have learned. It's not nearly as tough as the people selling related books make out, though they may b...

Learn-by-doing: Scrivener A la Carte

I'm brand new to Scrivener but excited to be learning the apparently premier writing process automation tool. In a past life, I have taught complex software to Design Engineers, and they can be an ornery bunch at times, I found them impatient and wanting to get on with their assigned productivity. S...

I'm new to this forum so this may well be a stupid question but I'm a little desperate now so here goes. Go ahead and mock me if that makes your day. This may also be in the wrong place so it's a good opportunity to scold, as well! How can I post a new topic at the top level of the forum? I seem to ...
