Yup. I’ve signed up for another NaNoWriMo… only this is CAMP NANOWRIMO, which takes place during the month of April. I think I’m “cruising for a bruising” as I’ll be shooting for 50,000 words in a month again.
In November, I did NaNoWriMo and completed the rough draft for Book 2. This time around I’ll be working on the 3rd and final book in the trilogy. I’m not sure if I’ll finish the novel, but it will at least get me going.
Who else is up for Camp in April?
I’ve also downloaded and will be using a new writing program called Scrivener.
I’m hoping I can consolidate all my research and notes to make finding them all much easier. I don’t mind writing in Word, but I have found I need to find a better way to at least organize my notes. There must be 5 or 6 different documents, and if I’m searching for just one piece of a giant puzzle, well, that gets a bit daunting. It was only $40 so, I don’t feel like I’m breaking the bank even if that is all I use it for. The plan is to write all of Book 3 into Scrivener and see if I can adjust to it. I’ve heard a lot of great things about it, I’m just one that is reluctant to change, but if that change really will help me in the end, then, I’ll give it a go.
Anyone else use Scrivener? Have tips?
Oh and one more thing, I’ve decided to submit a short story into a contest. EPPP!
I’m in the process of moving the short story into Scrivener, while keeping the original version in Word. It’s an adjustment but I’m learning.
