Dar49 Daily. Is out!  If you haven’t seen the cute YouTubes of the cub and the pup you need to see it. Smiling and laughing are the best medicine for all of us! 😀


 

Look what I found:

Though there are real books you can get at Amazon and the like, they are all very expensive, at least they are for my pocketbook. This one is free and in PDF format. I downloaded to my tablet so I can read as I work. So Now I can give a better review of Scrivener. I think I like it. In many ways it reminds me of how FreeMind (I’ll tell you about this one later) a mind mapping software. It lets you click or drag and drop. It calls the main (chapter) folder a parent folder and text (scene) the child. Those texts that are on the same level are siblings, etc. As with any program it takes playing with it a bit to understand. Scrivener has a free trial for 30 days. After that it is $40. If you were to get the above PDF you would have nice little novel/manuscript writer. Sometimes Scrivener has deals with NaNoWriMo so go to Scrivener to sign up for newsletters or contact the people there. They are very nice. I got my software a while ago but never could get started until I got that PDF to walk me through the first steps. Now I think I will like it.

Sometimes when I am working out a story I like to draw out a mind-map. It gives me ideas on how thing will interrelate.  Simon Hayes of yWriter suggested this one:

FreeMind is helpful for more than just writing novels, it can help you figure out other problems in your life that seem to run in circles. If you read about Mind-Mapping and how it works with pencil and paper You will see the advantages of working this map on the laptop or tablet.

I have actually used the manual method to write term papers. It helped my visual mind to organize my thoughts. And just like the one above you can color code and illustrate to your heart’s content!. By the way, those for the tablet are best bought rather than trying the free versions. It wouldn’t work as well on a small screen. As it is, I would like to have the wall-sized screens of the movies for things like this.

Oh, when I was writing about programs yesterday I forgot to include RoughDraft:

I have a friend who swears by this software. For me it is no different than Word or OpenOffice. It is free or on donations,

My husband recently turned me on to Grammar Check Anywhere

 

error-26

 

 

 

I am still learning to use it (when I remember to use it) It is a quick way to check on an email or scene or what have you.

 

Well, that is enough for tonight. Look how much I get done on other things when I have NaNo to work on! 😀
