Re: Scrivener not playful / organic enough?

hmm, perhaps we should move this topic to the scrivener scenarios section. KB's "it is what is is" is a pretty definite answer to my wish. As far as making Scrivener a collection basket for attempted stories is concerned, I'm personally not a fan: 1. Finder + spotlight is already a pretty ...

Scrivener not playful / organic enough?

Hey there, I've been the owner of a Scrivener license since approximately 2007 and, while I don't use it much, I occasionally feel the fiction-writing bug and return to it. But I have to say that one thing I find intimidating as a casual user, is that there's all this work to do before the actual wr...

Smart folders in iPhoto 8, unfortunately, do not take into account dimensions of pictures. They do have other options, which might help. One I've just tried, as I have a similar problem, is setting "camera model" to unknown. All my pictures are made with the same camera, so those unknowns ...

If you read the centauri trilogy, I mentioned before, it does try to tie some of stuff together… some, not all! I guess the creator wanted to leave some story-lines for upcoming ventures.

I'm not a fan of soaps either, nor was this my own observation. No, I think I heard this on the Babylon 5 podcast (yes there is one), of which I listened to 1 episode (at that point it was getting too geeky for me). Their argument is that you could lift all the sci-fi elements from Battlestar and yo...

@ Alex1: no I don't think it's off topic at all. Andreas Katsulas was an excellent actor and brought much to the series. He was also a devoted smoker though, so I assume he (subconsciously) knew what he was doing to himself and just tried to enjoy life. @ AV & Alex2: yeah $700 is crazy! Voyager ...

I appreciate your opinion on this, but my philosophy towards contemporary shows is somewhat different than yours. For Heroes, it's too soon to say whether the story really has merit or is just a gimmick. And Survivor, having only seen a few episodes, feels like a very regurgitated version of Robinso...

B5 is interesting because you'd expect that as a timeline becomes more complex and expansive, the characters' depth will suffer. I think that's true for both star wars and star trek, where good and evil are fairly one-dimensional. Even Darth Vader's (painful to watch) transition into the dark side, ...

Very interesting, Bob. My current project, a thesis, wouldn't work with this at all, but I'll definitely bookmark it for a someday-in-the-future scenario.

Well, just like any media-industry, literature is a dual industry. There are writers who want to create and publishers who want to sell. The latter is just as much based on models and formulaes, if not more, as the first. For publishers, the safest bet is to look at what worked in the past. No artis...

Lord Lightning, hi back! I understood that spinningdoc was spurred by your template and I had already downloaded it thanks! My comment was more on the general use of models, which I understood as being the sub-context of the OP's post. I somewhat agree with howarth's view as well, though I won't go ...
