Re: Novel-in-a-Day 2: The Revenge

Oh hell. I just discovered The Revenge and I'd love to play. I'll send you an email confirming that. Maybe I could get on the reserve list. I've written five novels with S, so I'm happy with the word count. Good luck to me!

Re: Is anyone using Scrivener for poetry manuscripting?

I complete at least one poem a day using Scrivener. I collect all the poems for a year in folders named A, B, C etc. I also keep a collection for each month, to keep me honest (as I am committed to doing poetry practice daily). I also keep collections of keywords, based on saved searches, e.g 'red' ...

My debut novel to be published

I wrote my first NaNoWriMo novel last November, and in March, this year found an agent. Last month, I was signed by HarperCollins. The novel, The Cartographer, is a literary novel of 112 000 words, and was written on Scrivener, the greatest invention since the ballpoint pen. Could I have written it ...

Project disappeared

I have a large project on Scrivener that I sync between two machines using SugarSyn. Yesterday, I closed the project, and opened the relevant folder on my other machine, only to find that it had not synced. I went back to the first mac and noticed that the project was no longer in its folder. I open...

Thanks, Keith.
By the way, my sister (also a novelist) is now a confirmed Scrivenist too.
Cheers.

Re: Sorting lists

Got it, thanks. Also, how do I save save a chapter as a word doc after it has been chopped into 10 docs in the binder without permanently merging them? when I went to merge all of the docs in a chapter i got a message warning me that this could not be undone, so naturally, I chickened out.

Sorting lists

Hi, I stumbled across S last week and instantly imported my novel in progress, which has 250000 words, and organised the whole thing. I loved it, I brought it. Congrats, Keith. I will be using it or the rest of my life. (Fellow Tauruses will now be saying: and he means it, too). Now, how do you sort...
