Bullet journal NaNoWriMo prep!

Yes! I got my word count tracker done in my bullet journal.  I did the right page last night before bed and I did the left page today.  On the left page, I put a graphic from NaNo and I put my winner certificated from the last two years. ^_^ . The word tracker on the right is just like the one I used last year.  I really like it and find it useful.  Here is my tracker:

Major NaNoWriMo prep!

So as I've been preparing for NaNoWriMo this year, I saw someone mention Scrivener.  It's a program built for writers by writers.  You can get a free 30 day trial of it.  I tried it during NaNo last year for a day or two but I didn't have time to learn it and do NaNo.  I knew that when you win NaNo you can get the program half off.  I was wanting to download a trial and see how it went, but I knew it would be over when I needed it for Nano and I wouldn't get the 50% option again until December.  I went through my old emails from NaNo from last year and found the link and the code. I figured I'd be totally out of luck and it would have expired.  To my surprise, it was still good until November 1!  I went ahead and bought Scrivener to use for NaNoWriMo this year and for other projects.  I'm liking it a lot, but there is a big learning curve with it.

I've been reading up on it on different websites, I've watched some YouTube videos and have a lot more to watch.  I think I'll be pretty good with it by November.  I already started a file for this years book.  I just have some notes, the title, and the RV stuff I found last night.  I love that you can put all the info you need into one 'binder' ta Scrivener.  It's so cool.  I was also able to import my last two years books in there.  I can edit them and work with them in there.  It's a cool program and I'm glad I got it.  I'll probably talk about it more as I learn.


Fantasy RV shopping....

Well, it's research, but yeah.  It was fun! I went looking for an RV that I'll be using in my upcoming book.  I searched high and low on Google and finally found a company that makes compact ones that are perfect for my needs. I printed out the brochure and the interior layout for reference.  Two of my main characters are going on a road trip away from the compound so they'll need something safe to go in.  I'm going to have it look like crap on the outside (on purpose). It's to look like that so no one will mess with it when it's parked. (Zombie novel) . It will be steel reinforced on the outside and just the right size inside. I didn't want to use one of those huge ass RVs, so I went looking for one a little bigger than van size.  I found this one company that had a lot of them. I picked the one I want to use.  

In other news, I walked today.  It was overcast it and even rained a bit as I started out, but it soon stopped raining.  On the way back, the sun came out and it got hot. BLEAH!  I hate heat. It's October, it should not be this damn hot.  UGH!  It's making me feel ill.  Sick ill, not pissed ill!  I feel like I'm going to pass out and die before I get home. It sucks.  Hopefully it will cool off soon!
