I posted this on Instagram this morning. A little Motivation Wednesday if you will. And it’s stayed with me all day. I am looking forward to adding words to my manuscript. I am gathering them in my mind right now.
I am writing this post from our desktop under the sleeping eye of Bobbie Voltaire The Cat. My laptop’s keyboard is still writing its own story and I can’t really write on it. I did order a new one and it should arrive tomorrow, after some delay. I managed to download Scrivener to the desktop despite the wireless card being a bit problematic so I am gearing up to write. And I am very much looking forward to writing the chapters I’ve unlocked in my last writing session.
Today, I also wrote other words…not manuscript words, but newsletter words. As you probably know I have a newsletter and Mailchimp gives me data on the percentage of people opening said-newsletters. Sometimes newsletters end in spam or maybe my subject lines are not appealing enough or maybe people get busy. And it is important to make sure subscribers are still interested in the news I send. From a business perspective, deleting subscribers who are no longer interested mean I may pay less monthly for Mailchimp 🙂 and from a personal perspective, it’s nice to see higher open-rated on my newsletters….
I’m also working on the back-end of previously published books to keep them updated.
And I just wrote those words.
One word a time.
What are you currently writing or thinking about writing?

I just downloaded the trial version of Scrivener yesterday to try it out. Hopefully I can figure it out bc there are a lot of cool features.
Oh let me know how you like it! I’ve started using it I think 2 or 3 books ago and it has really helped me, especially since I have a tendency to write out of order. I don’t believe I use all the cool features, I still quite have a few things to learn. I do use it with different writing templates to help plot a little. (I’m not a big plotter so this has really helped me). Let me know if you want me to let you know which ones I’m using. 🙂
