I think I was actually more productive when my laptop was in the shop.
I’ve been working on Gifted using Scrivner on the Mac. The problem is…it’s a desktop. It’s upstairs in my office. My character letters and background are on that computer. Lately, I’ve been getting my ideas while the laptop is handy, but I don’t want to start a new file when I’ve already got the file upstairs. It’s not as easy to simply e-mail the file to myself (like I would if I were writing in Word). I’m sure I can export those files to txt or rtf — I just haven’t bothered to figure out how yet.
I guess it sounds silly, but I can’t get the organization right for this story. I can’t find the “routine” that will get me from blank page to the end. I know it’s there — I just need to figure it out.
I’m on a yahoo group where people have been talking and asking questions about Storyboards. I may document some of my background preparation as I build this story. I’ve done it before, but I lost some of those entries when I moved my site. What do you think — are you bored by process entries? Surely it would be better than blog silence while I dink around between computers!
