Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

The characters didn't actually have to be outdoors soaking up the old Vitamin D and working on their tan! They just had to be active, and getting from one place to another, during Fr...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Ohhhh just had a thought.. can Vampires go out in the day? *Clenches everything in fear* Pigfender told me "sunlight, not so good! She doesn’t *know* that though, but why would you ever risk it?" That's why I had to scrap my first draft (as far as it had got, anyway), as everything in it ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

After clarification of a couple of background plot details with Pigfender, I have to scrap all of the 1200 words that I have written so far, and start again. All I can rescue is 100 words of inner musing. To think that I had hoped to finish at lunch time! :-(

Re: Purchased Scrivener, no confirmation email.

If you have checked your spam folder but still can't find the receipt and delivery emails from Paddle, then is it possible that you might have given a different email address, or mistyped the email address, when purchasing?

Re: Installing Scrivener On Windows When Previously Purchased For Mac

An update from July 2019

Just to clarify that following our move to a different e-commerce and licensing provider, we are no longer able to offer cross-grade discounts, so the URLs mentioned above are no longer valid.

All the best,

I'm currently reading His Bloody Project: Documents relating to the case of Roderick Macrae, by Graeme Macrae Burnet. It's very good, so far.

Re: How to come up names to your characters?

I have trouble with names in fiction. I barely notice them when I'm reading, and after I have finished reading a book I can seldom remember the name of any character I have met there. Names of fictional characters seem largely like placeholders for me. When I write (which is rare, these days), I'd a...

Re: Affinity Publisher! It’s alive! ALIVE!

An organisation for whom I have written regularly has used Serif's PagePlus for a long time, and I have been in a silent sulk with Serif for ages because PagePlus is Windows-only and won't run in CrossOver, which has made things awkward since I use a Mac. I have had to mock up alternatives using Pag...
