Opps, I've been on my old Weebly account and wondering where my blog was. Haha! Oh well, I'm back on this one now!
Today, I started my 30 day free trial of this really cool looking writing app called Scrivener (follow the link to the website which opens in a new tab).
I really like it so far! It has tabs to talk about your characters, your settings and lots of places for notes. But it's really customisable. I am going to add a tab called "World" which is just notes about the world that my characters are in since it's so different to our own.
It's basically a big space where you can put together character, world and setting sheets along with basic overviews of the plot line, in depth overviews of each chapter and (in the end) the overall chapter. I think this is really useful rather than me cluttering up my documents folder on my laptop. Also, there's some cool features like a name generator that lets you make names from different culters with different obscurities. I've already used this for the names Kris and Jan.
One this I dislike about it, is I couldn't put photos into the character sheets (and I like to find photos of what the objects, scenes and people look like from online to help with description and imagination). I worked around it in the end by making a new file and putting it under the character sheets so that I only saw it when that character sheet was selected (that was the most complicated way of wording it EVER omg).
Well, I should be getting to bed - it is midnight. JOKES! I still need to binge watch YouTube and write my diary before I even think about making myself hot chocolate.
