Re: The Martian

Thank you for the recommendation. My son saw it last night, and he tells me it's good, too. Must watch out for it. It doesn't seem to be on at our local cinema, or at the alternative cinema that we often go to (fifteen miles away), so I might have to go further afield.

Nihilistic? Moi? I have lofty ideals, I'll have you know, and many of them. Mostly contradictory, mind you. :)

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Agh, Rog! I am really sorry, but I am going to have to pull out of this year's NiaD. I have had a number of conflicting commitments on that day from the outset, which I thought I could work around, but now it appears that I will be spending 3+ hours travelling to/from a 6-hour event, slap bang in th...

Re: Re-activating my scrivener lost ID

Hi morphlet, If you send an email to sales AT literatureandlatte DOT com with your name and with the email address that you used when purchasing (or with any likely email addresses, if you can't remember exactly which one), we can look up your licence details for you.

Re: Please submit Scrivener to Mac App Store(Chinese area)

I'm sorry, but we can sell Scrivener through the App Store only in countries where Apple handles the sales tax aspects of the sale, and unfortunately they do not take responsibility for doing this in China. You can read more about this in our Mac App Store FAQ at https://scrivener.tenderapp.com/help...

Re: Live, write on a train....

It sounds like my idea of hell. But then again, the German train system is a lot better than the UK one, so perhaps it's not as ghastly as it sounds. Only a lunatic would choose to live on a train in my part of the UK! You wouldn't get a seat, the carriage would be grubby, either the lights or the a...

Re: Author gender and genre

I read an article recently which suggested that it was easier to get interest from publishers/agents with a male pseudonym (http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/aug/06/catherine-nichols-female-author-male-pseudonym), although I'm not sure if that is exactly the question you are asking. Back in my d...

Re: Scrivener for Academic writers

And another that I haven't seen mentioned here or for a long time is Zotero. As it was free, a number of my Chinese students used it, at least of those who listened when I advised them to use bibliographic software — since the Chinese are fundamentally averse to paying for software! — but I never d...

Re: Writing Laptops?

I don't think my typing is either faster or more accurate with Dvorak than it used to be in QWERTY -- it's probably about the same, although I have not tested this empirically. I had actually forgotten that speed was meant to be one of the theoretical benefits! For a while, I used QWERTY in a work-o...
