Amazon best-seller writer, Kay Kukoyi, was my guest in January 2017. Since then, a lot has happened! Both of Kay’s first two books have become Amazon #1 best-sellers in multiple countries. Don't Hire a Software Developer Until You Read this Book has been #1 in six countries: the UK, US, Germany, Brazil, Australia, and Canada. And, Develop Your Idea! reached #1 in four countries. Congratulations Kay! So, how does Scrivener fit whilst working on...

Today's guest is Alinka Rutkowska, fellow Wrimo and Scrivener fan.   Back in March 2016, Alinka shared how she uses Scrivener in her writing. Since then, she and I have been talking and finding that we have much in common. We're learning all the time, and we make mistakes along the way. We both want to share what we've discovered, to help other writers enjoy the same success we've had, without the setbacks. We...

Welcome, Patsy Collins! My nag buddy, Patsy, is no stranger to RedPenners. And she has been my guest on this blog before, back in April 2016. As I'm currently focusing on formatting, I asked Patsy to share her thoughts on this topic, particularly as she's just published a new collection of short stories: No Family Secrets.   Don't you just love the cover? Inside are 25 stories dedicated to her 10 cousins.   Have you noticed how,...

Rachel Hobbs, Today’s guest. Rachel is the author of e-books Bite-Sized Fiction For Busy People and up-and-coming Tall Tales For Humdrum Days. During the day, Rachel works as a full-time dental nurse at a small local practice in a little Welsh village in South West Wales. In her spare time, Rachel writes, and she uses Scrivener! Before Scrivener, Rachel, what did you use? Before I stumbled across Scrivener, I used Word. There’s nothing wrong with Word;...

In my last blog post, I recommended you take up the offer of free video training courtesy of Joseph Michael. I'm hoping you've had time to look at Video 1: Setting up Scrivener for Your Success. One thing that crossed my mind was that, while Joseph explained what the Binder is all about, the editing space was blank. Joseph imported a file that had already been written - easy!   But what if...

I'm delighted to have as my guest today, Alinka Rutkowska, a fellow Wrimo and a huge Scrivener fan.   Alinka's first novel, published under her pen name, Ally Capraro, is due out a week today, on 29 March!   How important is Scrivener for you, Alinka? I couldn't have written my novel without Scrivener. I'm a children's author, I mean, I used to be, until I started dreaming of writing a novel. And when I...

During the recent series of Red Pen Launch webinars, I was blessed with the support of romantic novelist and veteran RedPenner, Patsy Collins.   With NaNoWriMo less than a week from now, I've invited Patsy to tell us her plans for November. So, Patsy, NaNoWriMo 2015. Will you be taking part? I've not completed NaNo during the last couple of years, and previously I've 'cheated' at NaNo and used it to write 50,000 words of...

The secret of winning NANO - going through that 50K barrier before time runs out on day 30 - boils down to setting goals and meeting targets. On the NANO site, each time you enter your word-count-to-date, a bar chart tells you how you're progressing. If you're on schedule, writing your 1666 words per day,  it's good to see today's column above the target line. If you're slipping behind, it can...
