About 800 words written on Chapter 41 of Tyrmia this morning. I may get to work more on it again, but probably not today. Got the hero airborne and I killed the pilot. Now’s her time to shine.
Today’s writing was accomplished in MS Word on my MacBook. Why not in Scrivener? Because that program finally let me down. I went to get my WIP and the file was not there. Careful searching on the HD and I found it in three places. I tried loading each file into Scrivener and all I was able to get was half my novel. Not sure what happened to the other half. I have looked fruitlessly for the whole novel on my backup disc, but so far, have not been able to find it. I do recall upgrading Scrivener a few weeks ago, but after that, my novel has been MIA. At this point, I am not prepared to blame the program, after all, I do have two children and I am a bit scatter brained at times. However, I can’t afford the time of re-inputting dozens of chapters back into Scrivener.
Luckily, I did a compile of of the whole novel to Word format last week and I have been using it going forward. I really hate using Word for things longer than a few hundred pages. It just takes too long to process and seems to get choked easily. My kingdom for a writer’s version of Word or some such program that can hold large documents with ease.
