This week went well writing wise! Wow alliteration. It comes as a surprise to be simply because of the amount of random untoward personal life stuff. A friend is going through some health issues. Some scary health issues. Work kicked off in the kind of way where it feels a lot like you’re drowning.
But I digress.
I’ve been really enjoying using the Scrivener app to write recently. I have it on my iPad, so, on the bus to or from work, I can just pull it out and crank out my words. Once thing the app has that I really enjoy is the ability to set targets for the session of writing.
As far as I can tell there is no such feature on the Mac version. So, when I open the app, I can just set myself a target, write away and see the little wheel fill in. Very satisfying.
You can also set overall word targets, but I tend not to do that.
I’m now five chapters into my first draft, which feels pretty amazing. I hope I can keep up this momentum.
What do you guys use to write? Are you old school? Do you have a favourite app?

It’s always awesome to be on a roll! For me at least, I feel much better having written than writing itself, so having these metrics make for great motivation. Wishing you all the best!
Yep! Plus making a game out of anything always helps keep me on track.
