( I think I'm loving Scrivener! )


3000+ words on POISON GARDEN, An Elle Black Penny Dread. All I meant to do was assemble some research on the garden belonging to the villa-style house (the Blacks residence), in 1880 Camden Town, and ended up working in the first chapter. A nice start, and how wonderful to have the visual boards (plus boards/folders with PDFs, web links, and other research material) *right there* on the 'writing desk'! I may still run to Pinterest, or to my bookmarks, and especially to any of my hard copy books, but this makes the stories very easy to visualise!


And saves time, too, that was the whole idea of learning Scrivener. I think I'll create a new project for Dark Victorian: EVERLIFE and load that up with reference material. Then I'll figure out how I might lay that project out story-wise due to the subplots.


Charm School (the collected digital version), continues to be slowly converted to digital, because I do end up finessing my writing, re-lettering, and re-touching the art.


SUNDARK, the first Elle Black Penny Dread is ( taps broken foot ), still in the hands of other people. I would love to have the book debut at Duarte Festival of Authors 2013 (where the gracious Kate Danley, author of the Maggie MacKay: Magical Tracker series will be sharing the table with me), and especially for APE 2013 (thank you to the awesome Emi Thompson, author of Clockwork Twist and Janice T., Neo-Victorian poetess, for sharing that table!). But as this is cutting very close . . . well! Let's hope it's ready by November for Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo!
