Re: An interesting problem with Wine & product registration

Solved! Believe it or not, my registration credentials got accepted by Paddle, and I'm now running my registered copy of Scrivener via WINE 4.0 under LinuxMint. Thank you Devinganger for your pointer. As you recommended, I installed .NET, and that proved to be the answer. For those who, like me, are...

Re: An interesting problem with Wine & product registration

I've got the same problem: Scrivener is running fine under LinuxMint using WINE 4.0, but only in trial mode. When I fill in my registration credentials in the pop-up window when Scrivener starts, I get an error message. There appears to be a problem with Paddle, the helper programme that Scrivener c...

Re: Tea Time

Good to see this topic revived! I've been a loose-leaf tea brewer ever since 1973 when my then girlfriend bought me three tins of Jackson's of Piccadilly, being an orange tin of Orange Pekoe, a green one for Ching Wo and a blue one containing Earl Grey. From those humble beginnings I ventured into m...

Re: On being reticent

Thank you for your kind views about my 68 pages, vic-k. Thank you also for addressing me the way you did. In terms of being a writer, I'm definitely a young whippersnapper. Biologically it's a different matter. I'm glad to hear that 'Valedictory Quadrangle' struck a chord with you. It's not every da...

Well, that's one hurdle taken. I'm looking forward to hearing your views about my motley collection of short storiettes (see, there I go again).

Re: Workflow question: handling ideas that pop-up during writing

You're lucky to have ideas popping up during writing! So far I've created a new document under Research for any new ideas which had no logical place in the storyline. Or which are not meant to be part of the story. For instance, when I thought of aspects I'd like my proofreaders to pay attention to,...

Re: currently reading

I recently devoured Robin Sloan's Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour bookstore (2012), which has everything: love story, Dan Brown-ish angles, endearing characters, mystery, technology, whodunnit... Also, John Banville, The Sea (2005). Masterfully told story about an innocent childhood seen from old age, which ...

On being reticent

I'm not going to give you my whole history. Even if potted, given that it starts in 1956 it would be too long and tedious. So, I used Scrivener to finally gather up the short semi-fictional stories I wrote about the Netherlands since 2012. Edited them, compiled them into a pdf file and self-publishe...
