On Writing: From Page to Screen

I think I’ve mentioned here that in writing my book I haven’t been able to really focus on writing when writing on my laptop.  I’ve had far greater success writing things out by hand in my pink notebook with my pink pen.  (Pink is very important!)

I’ve blown through more than one pen and I just finished filling a notebook, so now it’s time for the transcription to begin.  I’m sure some editing will take place during the transcription, which is good.  I’m still figuring out a system to get things into order given that I didn’t write anything chronologically in my pink notebook.  However, I’m sure that system will come organically as we undertake this…ah…undertaking.

  1. Pink is absolutely crucial, although purple also works.
    For transcribing, have you considered using something like Scrivener or WriteWay, where you can put each scene in and then drag them around, or set out the order and fill in the gaps as you find them? I’m just about to give Scrivener a try, after years of not bothering.
