Writing update (changing horses)

Scary stuff today: I am trying out Scrivener (https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/overview) for the first time.

I’ve always written my books in Word, opening a new file for every scene or thought, then pasting them all together into one document at some point when it felt right. This worked great for the first book (~5000 words), not as great but still ok for the second (~17,000 words), and will likely be terrible for this new one (currently ~21,000 words and growing). The proliferation of files and resulting loose-ends is becoming difficult to manage. Scrivener is a writing tool that is designed to help manage a large writing project. We’ll see.

Why is this scary? Well…
