Check out this nifty little way for Atomic Scribbler to make me feel inadequate!
The writing program from Bad Wolf Software has a Daily Word Count feature that keeps track of your output and updates a graphic, which opens in your browser.
It’s a little different from Word, but Bad Wolf’s writing programs export your work and merge all your scenes into one document (Page Four, their older offering, did the same thing). I like this because I can move scenes and chapters around in the project window instead of cutting and pasting. Then I can shoot that bad boy out into Word and mold it into a proper manuscript format.
No, I’m not a shill for this program or Bad Wolf; I just like it, and them. They’re a small Irish company with cool products.
I think I’ll post these progress screenshots as we go, and you can watch my productivity wax and wane.
Getting started has been difficult. I’m not sure I like this idea, or these characters, or this concept. Everything could change before I’m finished.
Short post; I need to get up early tomorrow to meditate with my sangha. It’s already past my scheduled bedtime and I need to wind down before I can go to sleep. Plus, I’m hungry. Trying to write when you’re mentally constipated uses up a lot of energy.
