Well, it was about a week ago, but there wasn’t time to do a complete announcement / launch, as I was heading out on holiday. Anyway, we have “How to win NaNoWriMo – advice and inspiration from a twelve-time winner“, and “Scrivener Pure and Simple – a simple way to set up Scrivener for new users“. Both are books we think will be of enormous value and interest to writers.
NaNoWriMo is a month-long challenge to write 50,000 words of a new novel, and each year, many tens of thousands of authors across the world take part. The author has successfully completed this challenge twelve times since 2003, and he has a lot of experience of talking to, and working with, writers at all levels of experience. Common problems crop up time after time, and this book is an attempt to help authors past those sticking points during the month.
Scrivener is a piece of software which helps writers organise and streamline their writing process. The one criticism, heard time and again, is that it appears to be over-complicated for new users. That is why the author has stripped back the features, and presented a very simple way of setting up the software so that it is much easier to use.
