To Scrivener or Not to Scrivener?


Hello Dear friends,

I ask you a question…. To Scrivener or Not to Scrivener?

Scriver

It is a writing program I had a long time ago  and  it has changed since then. I Think it could be a great asset  better then  most out there… Hmmm.   I just downloaded this file for the trial. thought you may like it too watch the video then decide its 40$ to buy but it may be very handy for you. at the end of this video he says their is a 20% off coupon but I haven’t got that far yet. I am 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:

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….

Progress….


Hello Dear Readers.

I am sorry I have been very bad only posting on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Author.AmyJaneSandberg , But I am rectifying that this week, by back dating and adding older posts here with more details then I have on Face book. So When I post this they will be already added. ^_^

For the past few weeks I have been working on my books.

I was shocked when someone bought 6 books at once. When I asked her why; She told me she wanted to share them. She sent me this picture today after she received them. She is awesome! I edied the picture to protect her privacy. I’m still speechless.

My phone is giving me lots of issues. It keeps saying that I need an update but when I accept it does nothing. It keeps going silent and out of range a lot more than ever! I am not receiving 3/4 of my calls. Sigh. With that and my net issues I wonder if there’s a good reason or it is playing with me. I really miss talking to you regularly. People are extremely important to me. And I make time for you when I can. Friendship is a 2 way street. I am sorry I can’t be around like I want to. Life has added more to keep me busy as well. Please do- Text me, skype me, or fb message me; and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible whenever you want me. There’s a guy who at Best buy who may be able to fix it I just have to make time to go.

♥ Love ya,

Amy Jane Sandberg

 

Updates Finally!


Hello dear readers,

I finally got around to editing the links and my work page! Whew… It’s a pain to do, I’m not entirely happy with it. But my coding skills are limited… @.@ Anyways I added  a few books I am working on. Normally I would do a full detailed progress report with lots of fun little  details. But I am taking care of my nephew this week, he is currently  occupying his self with the movie Frozen… His favorite character is Olaf of course…  One of Mine too. 😛   Great Movie you should see it….

 So I have to keep this short.. 

Some of my books are on hold, oddly enough all my fictions.. Due to a past virus I had my  updated versions were  deleted from my laptop. However I was smart and backed them up on my External Hard drive…  The bad news is, since the move I can not find the power cord to it…  I had kept them together but somehow the  cord has vanished…  I however was smart enough to back up my faith based books in 2 other places. So I am currently working on  those when Time permits..  Those being:  “Miracles Still Happen Today”, “Deeply Rooted In Him”,  and “Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments”.  The latter being a book I  was able to compile really quickly…    I was not gonna announce it, I was gonna leave it as a surprise. But since They are all coming along so nicely I couldn’t help but share my Joy.  Although I seem to be busier then usual, and i have a small desk…  I am  doing a lot better with staying focused and writing more often then I used to.

I long so much to finish them as soon as possible, and I get so stressed when I want to write and can’t. However Life is precious and people are too. So  I tend to choose  experiences and people over time alone writing if presented the option.  God’s timing is perfect  so I try not to get mad at myself  for not being done yet. I want them to be perfect… Well as perfect as I can be and I am looking for publishers on two of the three books too… Tho I will probably self publish also…. I want to follow God’s will.. I am really pleased with how “God Supplies and Miracles  Happen” Turned out!   You need adobe reader for the e-book.. I’m debating paying the money to get it on Amazon, Nook and ibooks….  What do you think? Should I? And  I adore how the print book turned out… You should totally check that out.  http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27

Well that is it for  now…

Lots of Love, God Bless you today and always!

Christmas Encouragement….


Hello Everyone,

This year has been hard for me, yet I’ve been blessed! So much has happened and changed since last Christmas. This year there seems to be something missing.  I can’t put my finger on what it is.  There is for sure a cloud of depression hanging over  people too.  But I am staying thankful.  I am making a effort to spread cheer and love. Along with  the reason for the season.  Keep in mind Christmas only comes once a year.  But it lives in my heart year round. Choose not to let the little things get to you. I know this time of year brings back bad and good memories for all. I want to encourage you to focus on the good.  Have regrets? Everyone does. But… Every day is a new day bringing new chances and choices. Don’t wait for the new year resolution to change. Do it now… So you can be happy sooner.  ♥ I know I make it sound so easy. But I know that it is not. I truly believe that if you look you can find reasons to be happy. Complain less and smile more… Every thing worth doing – takes effort! Learn to appreciate each opportunity to make a choice as they arrive.

This year again I didn’t finish the main books I’m working on. (Why work on more than one at a time? = to keep the writer block away.) I did pubish a smalk e-BOOK. And I am continuing to make progress on my main books almost daily.  I am working on them more determined  then ever now. So keep checking back with me and please don’t hesitate to ask me about them. ♥

Relationship research & Advice…..


After talking with many couples for research and curiosity. The hardest thing they have to overcome is the first admission of feelings. After that it continues to take great courage to trust another person with those feelings. But it doesn’t end there. When the couple can’t be or stay open about their feeling – the relationship starts to fall apart. It is often stressed Communication is the key to making it work. But compromising is equally important to them. Comparability is important too. But not as important. If you know me I’ve had boyfriends, a fiancée. Working on these books made me wonder is there only one person for us, what happens if you miss him or her? Does another come along or will you keep getting chances to win their heart? From what I have witnessed, there are many “will do’s” but also “My one & only”.

Each pairing is always different. That is why love / romance books are so popular and will never end. So many stories to tell. I’ve  also wondered is it true the person who confessed love first is top dog in the relationship? I don’t think so. I agree it takes a massive amount of courage to be honest like that. But I truly believe that the best relationships are ones where there is equal respect, honesty, and trust. The last person who confesses first was the key to the start of the New beginning together and gets huge kudos. Sometimes a per has to confess more then once or they take turns. Due to bad timing, or miss understandings. Both parties have equal responsibilities to do to give their best to keep the relationship good. It won’t always be equal. But that’s not an excuse to not try you best. I have a lot more to add to this, but another time another day.

I am encouraged by my research and I have hope my one will come eventually to stay in my heart and life. WHEN the time is right for me. In the meantime keep an eye here on info on my upcoming works. ALSO  keep coming back to my blog…  it’s in a constant   a work in progress as always but there for a reason. God bless you all.

Getting things done.


Hello Friends,

Here is a very quick update, I do not have stable net every day.. Nor time online.

Alaska is proof God is real…. The beauty alone is testament to it.. On top of that we have had non stop Favor.. People, Places, Finances, weather, and even animals…. All I can say is wow… God is always good. I know it but If my family were not so far away I would be extremely tempted to move here..

More over I am working on my books daily I printed 2 and have edited them, and I have written new pages… ❤ So though I am on a somewhat vacation. Being a maid of Honor is work but well worth it. My books are not suffering but instead getting more attention.

Take care, Hugs!!

Secret Entreys


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.

Rules:

*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..

~AJ
