Weeknotes September 1

No flash fiction today, but I have been working on a short story. I have large chunks of it and assorted ideas sprawling in a notebook, and today I now have 500 words of it written up so far.

I’ve started experimenting with Scrivener for these longer pieces. I’ve been struggling to use Google Docs (my default word processor) when my writing process involves jumping around between things, working on semi-disjoint ideas and scenes, and stitching them together during later edits. I’m hoping that Scrivener’s support for breaking up bits of text, and viewing them either individually or together, while being able to shuffle them around, will help me to not feel lost in a collection of virtual A4 pages with a few thousand words of scattered scenes and ideas that I’m trying to keep organised enough to grow and eventually edit into a whole.
