NaNoWriMo 2010, Day 6 - Playing With Toys

8888 / 50000 words. 18% done!

No real content tonight, but my word count is at 8,888 right now, and I thought that was pretty cool to post.

I've decided to start tinkering with a program called Scrivener for the rest of the month. It's a word-processing program that keeps the author firmly in mind. You can organize character and location notes, chapter summaries, scenes, chapters, and text in a one-window format that, so far, seems a lot more manageable than having a bunch of Word documents open all over your screen at once. Plus there's a Windows beta version available for the duration of NaNoWriMo, which is a big plus for me, since I'm not exactly a Mac guy.

(I almost posted "bug plus" there... yeah, that too. Beta, remember. Save early, save often.)

I'm catching up to my word count goals and I'm feeling good about my progress, even with a new program to beat the kinks out of. Five digit word count, here I come!
