Hello Dear friends,
I ask you a question…. To Scrivener or Not to Scrivener?
It’s a writing program I had a long time ago but it has changed since then. I think it could be a great asset, better than most out there… Hmm. I just downloaded this file for the trial, thought you may like it too . Watch the video then decide, it’s 40$ to buy but it may be very handy for you. At the end of this video he says there is a 20% off coupon but I haven’t gotten that far yet, I’m half way done. I am following text description and watching the video. I had the old version on my old computer and forgot what it was called till last week when I was talking to a friend and fellow Novelist. I have done a bit of research on it and its a little like “Ywrite5” which is free but much more… Just watch the video and decide if this is for you. It is pricey but I feel it is well with it my dear writer friends… I had a house full of people but I will be testing it out this week and will be able to fully to decide… I am wondering what you use if you write… I think this will come in handy with my fictions. Especially with organizations… I get stuck often because I keep everything in one folder for each story and some times that can be overwhelming and I get tired of going back and forth. So I want a handy tool where I can keep my mess and make it neat. I may not have the most organized house but when it comes to writing and my projects I am very organized and picky. I have to say the video and images made me expected something a little more high-tech then what I downloaded. Possibly the trial is 1.o but the the video is 2.0…. I have to look deeper into that when I am more awake….
Here are some links:

*1 hour and 30 Min: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLXjMLEZ00E
You can get the free trial and buy it here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php
After doing some research I found out why my Scrivener looks different in the videos. I knew it was a mac, and I had my guess they were using 2.0 and I had 1.0 well… I was right…. There is definitely a 20.0 But only for mac users….. So I will be waiting to buy… That’s to much money to put out twice… I’m disappointed…. Oh well….
God bless you today and always!

Hello there my beloved readers,
I am pleased to tell you every day this week I have been writing.. That is the most work I have done in months. It has been a pain the ass to do too.. My desk top is still broken and my laptop keys are faulting. Luckily I have an external keyboard from my down desk top that I can use, but I have to sit in odd positions and hold it on my lap which is some what easier then leaning over my “laptop desk” but it is more work.. I have dropped my poor keyboard five times today.. 😦 I love my equipment and think it is a blessing that I can do this at all.
Ok moving on I am sure you want to know how my books are coming.
“Miracles Still Happen Today” or “Believing is Harder Then You think” 1st chapter is DONE!!! I mean done done!! no more need to reedit anything.. And a editor saw it. Chapter two is almost DONE DONE. I had some details wrong. I was a newborn, how am I supposed to know everything.. XD So I fixed them and ended up writing several more pages. I just need to finish up the last two pages and then I will be done with Chapter 2.. Chapter three is done but I need to proof read it and I hope to send both to my new friend editor Monday.. That will be about 50 pages for her to read and I am not done. It is flowing out so nicely, if I keep at it It should definitely be done this year like I want.
“A Crimson Star” I have chapters 1-4 done I am just proof reading them and I will also sent to the same woman to edit.
Both books are about 60+ pages and about 6 chapters… I can not wait to share them with you!! I will post what I have for both first chapters tonight or in the morning for you to get a taste.. I already have the first chapter of the Crimson Star up but please wait to read it till I post that I have updated it.. That is an old draft..
Hello My Readers and Friends,
I was thinking since this site turned out exactly as I wanted it before I lost my other word press blog. (Sad I lost some pics and files, but oh well) That I would continue my dream of posting my book work under a password so that those “few special people” who donate, proof read, or family” can read them. But the rules will be strictly in forced and I can at any time remove the chapters and books if they are violated. I will have the 1st chapter public though. As by rule most publishers allow that to give readers a taste.. But for a few of my books you will want to read at least 2 chapters or you won’t get the book’s plot. Because some of my books will have two sides of the story.
*You are not allowed to share the pass word with anyone, not even family with out my permission!
*You must give me feed back, not slams, questions are good too!
*You must not copy, paste, save, or email them to any one!
With that said some time next week I will start adding chapters form all my current books. Please remember they are raw, and will be that way till I find a publisher and officially get assigned an editor. I have full right to change the books and chapters, as I please, and you will probably see little or big adjustments until each book is finished. I will have all my book chapters here unlike on Fiction Press, where I can only publicly post 3 chapters or I could not get officially published. Thank you and God bless!
I hope your as excited to read as I am to share..
