Re: Botheration with Edit Scrivenings

Hi IJB, However, you can still make batch changes across texts in 1.x, by selecting the documents you want to affect in the binder and using Documents > Convert and then selecting default or export style. The default style will convert all documents to use your preferences formatting, so you would ...

Botheration with Edit Scrivenings

Hi there, I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, and indeed, whether I'm being daft and missing something obvious. Here's the problem. I highlight a group of files in Draft and click "Edit Scrivenings". What I'd like to do is make mass format changes to all these files (conse...

If we can absorb that into ourselves then we have nothing to fear from either success or failure.

Re: Right out of the blue

For you it is writing. For me it is music. I have been playing for years and have done studio work for others. But I can't seem to "succeed" on my own. I just don't see myself as "good". Folks have payed me to play. I get an occasional royalty check. But I am not a professional ...

Re: WeSeWriMo anybody?

There should be a haiku wrimo. I follow a bunch of folks on Twitter who are brilliant at it. A haiku a day for thirty days: a lot less intimidating than Nano! :mrgreen:

Re: Ugh

Over the last two months I have managed to wring out a thousand words into the Moleskine and I typed them up today. Now I'm at the point where my protagonist must confront some of the very issues I've been struggling with since I have become a widower. I don't know if I can even do this by proxy. O...

Re: Right out of the blue

The big deal isn't getting paid or the word "professional", to which you've all hooked with such gusto. It's that I managed to do something that has caused such severe anxiety in the past I've had to be hospitalised. It wouldn't matter if what I'd done was walk to Tesco to buy milk, climb ...

Right out of the blue

If getting paid for your work makes you a professional writer, then I guess this is it. But it came right out of the blue.
