When Something Just Doesn’t Look Right

After a lot of back and forth, I have finally switched over to Scrivener.  And I have to say that I absolutely love it.  It’s so nice having everything in one place.  The big thing that I have noticed since the switch is how absolutely horrendous my layout skills have been all these years.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I am working on (amongst other things) a rewrite of Maidens Song.  The Universe has expanded so much that it has become necessary to make some revisions.  But I digress.  As I said, I’ve move my editing platform and as such, I’ve been copying over the original text.  I’ve been shocked at the horrible formatting I’ve been using.   To be honest, it’s not something I’ve really put too much thought into it while writing.  My thought process has been more about getting the words down on paper (metaphoric paper that is).  That is how it should be of course; but as I am now having to dick around getting things looking right before continuing the writing, it will definitely be something that is always going to be a part of the process from now on.

Lesson learned for today.  Time for an early night as I am actually going to be braving the real world tomorrow and attend a formal, black tie event.  Sigh, human interaction….
