I use an iPad (and occasionally a Mac) I was having a helluva time doing reviews for a couple of months. But the latest iOS and Mac OS update resolved the issues, and I’m back to having the fastest editing thumbs in the East. If you do use your iPad, make sure you have the latest version and hit that button for larger letters at the top right of the review screen, and it’s MUCH easier on the eyes.
Thanks temple. That helped a lot. I can’t believe I never noticed that before.
Anyone else having trouble doing reviews? I've had trouble in the past and it's popped up again worse than ever. I have to continuously close and open to be able to comment. I have to select a whole paragraph rather than a sentence or a phrase. Or sometimes everything just freezes and I lose my comment. I've tried chrome, explorer and edge and they are all frustrating me.
Folks who aren't having as many issues - are you using Macs? I have an old one I might pull out if this is a Windows problem only. I have less trouble on my Ipad but my vision isn't the best so I'd rather use a bigger screen.
thanks in advance,
Congratulations all. Well done.
Congratulations. That's fantastic!
I am terrible at transitions. thanks so much.
Scrivener is great. And I think you can try it for 30 days for free. (25 times? - I can't remember exactly what the offer was. It's been too long.) Good luck.
Looks great Suin. Thanks!
Dirk: I recently read Jellicoe Road. It's a YA but it has two stories that take place at different times and intersect at the beginning and the end. It really worked. There were themes that crossed over and some symbolism too. I loved it. And I couldn't wait to find out how the two stories connected so it really pulled me through to the end. Good luck with your story.
Hi Rachel: Quick question. How many POVs in Exile In Time. Is it just Barbara's?
You might try reading =Stranger in a Strange Land=--the as-writtem version, not the abridged, originally-published version. The full version has the phrase 'real as taxes' in the second sentence.
Point is, Valentine Michael Smith is the ultimate innocent ... in a dangerous way.
NJC - Funny. I thought of the same book. It was so well done.
How are you setting up the story? Are there other main characters who are flawed? I went to a Michael Hauge workshop this summer and he talked about the movie Hitch - don't know if you've seen it. He said the character Albert didn't have a character arc as he was already living his essence and was already courageous. Everyone else had a character arc, but he didn't. He named some other movies where that was also the case. Of course, for the life of me I cannot remember them but I do remember he said some action movies/books didn't have protagonists with character arcs. Could your guy be the foil who changes everyone around him rather than have his own character arc??
Lost...in space. oh wait...

Vern: The dappling is the most important part - or the part my character's brother is watching.
Lol - John you made me spit out my coffee this AM when I read this cause...yeah. A lot of it zipped right over my head. Thank you everyone for your help. It looks like reflected is way to go - either that or maybe just use balloons? Nah - just kidding. Reflected it is. And thanks again everyone for taking the time to help me out. That line has been bugging me for a while. So if it were a prism it would be refracted though - right?
Thanks Dallas and Alkemi: reflected it is then. I appreciate the help.
they are those gold and silver ones. does that make any difference?
Can anyone tell me which word I would use here. I'm not sure. Thanks in advance.
There’s a slight breeze today, and the streamers shift and sparkle and dazzle. The refracted (or reflected?) light dapples the yard and even our faces.
I like the God said in there because of the rhythm. It kind of reads like a dramatic pause before "Have faith."
Hi Rhia: Can someone start with book 4 or do you need books 1-3 to figure out what's going on?
Thanks. I'm marking both of those. I'm terrible at punctuation. Especially commas.
@Debbie: You don't need those elements to join the group. All genre are welcome
Really? Okay. I'm joining.
