Re: How to forward incoming email into Scrivener

Can you import all your web clippings from EverNote? Most of my 3200+ "notes" are web clippings. Most of mine are clippings, too. Bear does an acceptable job with most of them—much better than NimbusNotes does. Tables get mangled, but if I refer to them a lot, I copy them to LibreOffice a...

Re: How to forward incoming email into Scrivener

Why did you use your old version as opposed to the updated version for exporting your notes? Because in the updated version I could only export 50 notes at a time. I have over 2000 notes for 5+ Gb. Nope, I'd rather reinstall the old version. Can you import all your web clippings from EverNote? Most...

Re: How to forward incoming email into Scrivener

I loaded my old Mac Evernote version from Time Machine, exported my notes, and held onto my premium subscription while I checked out alternatives. I settled on Bear. Once I was sure that my notes had arrived intact and Bear was working well enough, I cancelled my Evernote account. Not sorry. Why di...

Re: How do you find inspiration?

Good advice. Especially exposing yourself to a lot of good writing. I would also add that especially in the final stages to read it out loud, that helps you to find a lot of mistakes that tired eyes don't pick up and it also helps with the flow and cadence of your writing. Even bad writing might te...

Re: How to forward incoming email into Scrivener

They replaced all their client apps---Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and web---with completely rewritten versions. At the same time. They're all buggy. They all are incredibly slow. 15 minutes is too long to wait for a plain-text note to load. If you can get it to load. I couldn't get it to download l...

Re: Adding edits after compile

I compiled my novel from Scrivener into Word. My editor had made lots of comments that say e.g. "Page 43 line 12 add pace" or equivalents. As I find I write at my best in Scrivener is there any way to navigate in Scrivener using page and line references from the compiled Word version as t...

Re: How do you find inspiration?

Writing is a craft, not something you do only if you get inspired. It’s a craft, and you learn it by doing it. Write, read what you’ve written, re-write it, read it again, re-write, etc. And when you’re not writing, read! Read books, articles, short-stories, news papers. And then start writing some...

One way to promote your writing - Steven Pressfield

Make a whole video series discussing your book(s) or writing. Though I think it was meant to be educational, a corollary effect is that it exposes your work to a wider audience. 8)
