Writer’s Confessional Part Seven

I’ve been writing again, after settling into my new business routine. It’s been a road of discovery as always with doing anything new.

Scrivener, a writing software program, is a part of this journey after I gave up on it a few years ago because the difficulty of using it was frustrating. The only reason I’m using it again is because of K.M. Weiland. On her website, she mentions she’s created a step by step outlining file in Scrivener. This outlining system created a more straightforward organizational system. My ideas took a more linear path. Instead of a meandering path like a pantser, someone writing by the seat of their pants, plot and characters have a more precise focus.

I’m so grateful the creative dance is a gentler one because I hate trying to figure out technology. I’m the person screaming at the computer screen when things aren’t going the way I want them to go regarding my writing. Especially when I used Scrivener years ago.

I think as I finalize this outline, I’ll have a much easier time writing my newest romance novel.

    I enjoyed reading your blog. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one trying to figure out technology. Unfortunately I can’t use Scrivener because I’m a pantser. That’s the way my brain functions.
