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….

‪God bless you today and always!

Pen Name?


Hello, Hello..

I know I have the pen name as * Anjiu Vanstar but it has never really flowed. I have always Loved the name I use for my self at time “Anjiu SutoMu” I think I will change that to my pen name.  Anjiu means beloved; Suto means Storm;   Mu means Bug. So I prefer the SutoMu to the plain Vanstar which means nothing. SutoMu is more memorable too… I am not going to go back and rename my live journal though… So you will just have to know I changed my Pen name if I eventually release any books under it.

The reason I am all for a Pen name “a sur name” to write under is because I want my readers to be able to discern my books on “fact” and “faith” vs my “Fiction”ones..  That way also people who hold grudges against authors who write both. (I know they are out there, they do not want to read a book by an Author of faith.) But I feel torn about that too. However, I want to get my books read by many of people and though some of my books you will not be able to tell I am a believer you will in others very clearly.  (of course I want to write good books.) ” I can’t explain it. You will just have to see for your self when I am done..

So: What do  you think of the Pen name “Anjiu SutoMu” vs “Anjiu VanStar” Please leave me a comment with your opinion.
