Sunday Musings: Recovering Gamer
I’m just getting up after sleeping off the effects of pulling an all-nighter–something I haven’t done in a long, long time. No regrets, though, since this all-nighter was for the kids. As in the Extra Life gaming marathon in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Together, we raised an astounding five million dollars–and the numbers are still climbing. I’m still pretty sleepy today, but I’m damn proud of what we accomplish during this event.
In preparation for SciFi November, I’m getting started with a classic: War of the Worlds. Read by the incomparable Simon Vance–well, I guess in this case, he’s not quite incomparable, considering the original radio broadcast by Orson Welles, and the panic that ensued.
Tonight, author Jason M. Hough is hosting a Scrivener tutorial.
“NaNoWriMo is starting soon, and since you can download a trial version of Scrivener for free during the event, I thought I’d give people a quick tutorial on the software and how I use it.”

Scrivener for free then..hmmm
I paid full price before I knew about the free opportunity via NaNo. I don’t regret it though, because it’s definitely paid for itself for me.
I hadn’t heard about scifi november, sounds like fun. I tried Scriviner last near during NaNo, but I didn’t like it as much as word, which I already own.
