August 28, 2015

Starting on Monday, I will begin posting my writing. I have many plays, screenplay, teleplays and other stuff in my archives. I will post them from time to time. I need to figure-out how to format the plays for a blog, but that’s my issue.

From that synopsis I will break the story into parts and then into chapters. This is very easy to do in Scrivener. I will be creating screen shots as I work for a future blog post on writing with Scrivener.

You can learn more about NaNo here.
