Re: Need some Scrivener functionality, but...

Hi Ev, I've used Scriv for about 18 months now. My first project was a non-fiction, business book. I can honestly say that without Scrivener it's unlikely I would have been able to finish it. I had started the project in Word and was becoming increasingly frustrated. After several months of sporadic...

Thai!

Holy Cow! The Thai version of Think Better has just been released. The cover doesn't use the original illustration or color pallet. I wonder what the inside is like. It feels strange to be so disconnected from the book. I have no idea whether what's inside is a reasonable translation of what I wrote...

Re: How do beats in a story work?

I think the best modern reference on beats (as they apply to screenplays) is Save The Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need by Blake Snyder.

Re: Working with an editor's revisions to a book

Dear Toralf, I have tried the pdf approach. Nevertheless, though it sticks in my throat to say it, I have found the MS Word approach to be more robust, faster, and more error free than working in pdf mode. In addition, working in pdf mode virtually forces you to go back to some sort of text editing ...

Re: Typewriter sounds

I use an preference pane called keyclick <http://sustworks.com/site/prod_keyclick_overview.html>. Not perfect, but useful, and a lot cheaper than Typewriter Keyboard.

Hope this helps,

Re: POD published... so?

Having that said, big chance there is a good reason that I'm the only one who bought my books... I'm not sure that necessarily follows, Andreas. Having published a book recently, I've discovered that marketing is a huge component. I've probably spent more hours marketing my book than I did writing ...

Re: Think Better

Demonstrating the power of suggestion, I was reading this in a bookstore coffee shop. Remembered, "Oh yeah, I meant to take a look at that one." Sure enough the bookstore had two copies. Now they have one. :-) Thanks, Katherine. I'd be interested to know what you think of it! Best to you,...

Re: Think Better

OT: tim, how goes it on the battlefront ( Think Better )? Thanks for asking, Hugh. Think Better has been reprinted and McGraw Hill is raising the price (this month, I think). That concerned me because I want it to be accessible. I asked them why, and they said, "Because we can." Think Bet...

Re: Overview-List of all Annotations in Project

While not a dynamic "clickable" list, you can get an overview of all annotations in a big list thought, right? Just export annotations with titles. File menu/Export/Annotations... So to beam about, why not import the list into Scrivener to make it easier. Select a good chunk of the annota...

Too bad. It really is a nice idea! I guess this would be a monster to implement, Keith?
