Read books by AWers!
I'm making progress, myself. Not terrific progress -- I hate working without an outline -- but I should make my word count.
Just keep going, Bettie. Keep pace with me, so I won't be doing this alone.
Did my first revision pass on a story I finished last night, still only 4k which is kind of miraculous for me.
Not quite happy with it yet, but time for some laziness and TV-watchin' before tomorrow's tinkering resumes.

"It's always wrong of course to say that you can't do this or you can't do that in fiction. You can do anything you can get away with, but nobody has ever gotten away with much." - Flannery O'Connor
My favorite song in the whole world just came on Spotify: "Pure Imagination." I just love that song.
Almost done. Another 300 or so words, and I'm totally there!
ok, chapter 12 is done! 2297 edited, so a total of 5533 edited for the day.
I mentally shake hands with you, Junely, and now, I go to enjoy some period Drama. and the rest of the coffee.
And I'm done! At least for tonight.
Whoo hoo! time for some Supernatural! Nothing like some pretty, pretty boys to give me sweet dreams.

Went to the Home & Garden Show. Left show with three bottles of wine. Got home with two. In between, there was a sudden stop. And now my car smells like chocolate wine.
Got lots of brochures for things. And now I want to get outside and work on the yard.
I want to use Scrivener, but it does seem so complicated. And organized. And stuff. The pantser in me gets really anxious when I see corkboards with notecards.
That's good, at least. What winery is it? I've not really enjoyed the chocolate wines I've tried to date. I like my wine a little...challenging.
I don't think it's that complicated. The instructions are just long-winded and I don't want to screw anything up. This story is non-chronological but I'm writing the scenes in chronological order to keep track of things. Then I have to splice it. I think this will organize it better than working in a single word doc or, like, 40 of them.
Just remember that each notecard is a scene, you don't have to get much more complicated than that unless you want to. It took me a while to start learning about some of the cooler features of Scrivener.
Dudes! I can make a chain now! *is trying to learn to crochet for some reason*
Are you learning to crochet so that you can make yourself one of these?
It was a bottle of cocoa vino.
Pennsylvania has a bunch of little wineries everywhere.
I really do need to learn to use Scrivener. Especially since I have a back-burner project that's going to require a bit of research and a mixing of three POVs. And planning. I think I actually have to plan this one out.
