So, here we are on the 9th of November. 9 days into the month of November. Day 9 of 30 in November. Luckily for you, I’m not counting blog posts in my word count for Nanowrimo and will stop with that now. I am, however, participating in nano this year. Last year, I managed to not only participate, but to also win! Ok, so winning doesn’t really get you anything more than bragging rights, but still. Last night, I managed to exceed 10,000 words. It seems like a lot until you stop to think that it’s only 20% of the goal. Plenty to do and write from now until the end of the month.
I’m using a new (to me) tool this year. I decided to give the new Scrivener for Windows a try and see if I liked it any better than ywriter. So far, I can’t really say I prefer one over the other. Scrivener has a lot more of the details that might be really nice for future projects where I’m actually organized. I think it would be particularly useful for a non-fiction work. So, maybe I’ll give one of those a try after nano this year. Right now it’s in beta until at least December 12th, so you can give it a test drive for free. As an added bit of bonus, if you win (50,000+ words) nano this year and verify it, you’ll get a coupon for 50% off the full license when it’s released early next year. For future use, ywriter is free, so that might make a bit of a difference. We’ll see.
If you’re participating in nano this year, please add me as a buddy. Leave a comment here with your profile link and I’ll add you too! I try and go through and find the ones that have added me on the nano site, but they haven’t made that all that easy, so it’s easier if I just have the direct link. Here’s my profile.
