Lulled into a false sense of security by everything technical behaving lately, I have been delaying my plan to move my WIP from Microsoft Word to Scrivener. I believe in that old adage that if it ain’t broke, leave it alone…
My main reason for procrastinating is that I honestly believe that joining Scrivener is best done when you start a new story. Because I am two-thirds of the way in, so to speak, it does seem like breaking your eggs twice.
It had to happen, though, and yesterday, they tinkered again, and I had to jump through hoops to find and salvage the new chapter I was working on.
This must be the last straw, as I am getting too old for all this frustration.
Folly’s End is nearly finished, and I dread the thought of trying to format it on Word. I might have to shoot myself if anything untoward happens to it now.
It is weird, though, for I use Word for everything else. Letters, posts, and ideas, and I rarely have any problem. The trouble usually occurs when I want to move a file somewhere else.
I am also trying to create a newsletter on MailerLite, which is much more fun than Mailchimp, so transferring FE will have to wait a while. I will continue to save any progress with OneDrive like I always do.
Life continues to get more complicated than ever, doesn’t it?
Not yet, I don’t!
