SCRIVENER is an incredibly functional, user-friendly long-form writing platform that makes organizing novels a cinch. These screens (they have captions, so click on them) are just a basic overview of how to use the program. A few more notes:

  • I use 2-3 Scene documents per chapter folder and write about 2,000 words a chapter (I write Young Adult.)
  • You can color code & set yourself word count goals. Tutorial here.
  • The Literature & Latte site provides a very nice 30 day trial for Scrivener (I recommend trying it out during NANOWRIMO because if you win, a discount for downloading the program is often included as a prize! It’s already pretty affordable but who doesn’t love coupons? Also, to extend your trial time you can just do what I did and never close it, it only ticks down the day by how many times you open and close it. But really, buy it.)
  • It saves everything in one neat and tidy project file (when you save it, it creates a folder wherever you name the file path. IE: MY DOCUMENTS —> (TITLE OF YOUR BOOK FOLDER): then there will be a file that simply says “PROJECT” and that’s it!
  • Option to compile in multiple formats.
  • Initially developed for Mac, has a Windows version now.
  • Has features to compare word counts from file to file, track the usage of key words/phrases, and built in character development templates. You can even insert pictures into your documents.
  • DOWNLOAD TRIAL OR PURCHASE HERE.

I will have an actual writing-based post tomorrow. This is what I use for writing novels and it’s made it so much easier.

To put it bluntly, this isn’t a story you haven’t already read before, and I’m quite certain you could find a better version of it written by someone else.

What this is, regrettably, is the over-done tale about a young boy who lacks knowledge about a magical world and his encounter with a young (or perhaps, not so young) girl who knows everything about it.

Brett Helquist’s illustrations for A Series of Unfortunate Events

This is a great little book written from Abadeer’s perspective on the Land of Ooo and its many inhabitants, with margin comments by Marceline, Finn, and Jake. It should be noted however, that there is no “new” information in this book. Perhaps to some who haven’t seen all the episodes (or are just starting to get into the show), some sections may certainly help clear things up, but for the most part this is a book made to accompany the existing canon in a more streamlined fashion rather than give insight into unknown aspects of the Land of Ooo.

Ice King has a tattoo of a penguin on his butt, which, common sense dictates, is better left forever unseen.

Levitation aside, Marceline’s magical pwers include pyrokinesis, telekinesis, invisibility, necromancy, shape-shifting (a talent she inherited from Yours Truly), and making me magically delicious pancakes every Father’s Day. (As for shape-shifting, she can transform at will into a bat, a wolf, a reptile, or a tentacled monster.)
