NaNoWriMo Day 17: The Big Conversion

My writing process for NaNoWriMo 2022:

Step 1: Write one complete sentence summarizing each scene.

Step 2: Turn each sentence into a five sentence paragraph.

Step 3: Turn each paragraph into five paragraphs.

Step 4: Turn the five paragraphs into a narrative.

Now that I’ve reached step four, I’m converting everything to Scrivener. Up to this point, I wrote the first three steps in I’ve really come to love because it is a perfect text writing software for writing rough drafts. I create a document called a ‘scratch pad’ so I don’t feel obligated to write something perfectly.

Here’s what my Scrivener setup looks like for my NaNoWriMo project: 

But now that I’m in step four, the actual writing, Scrivener serves my purpose. How? Well, I need a split screen to look at my notes from step three to write the scene in its step four stage. does not have split screen options.

So, I transferred everything over.

The weekend is coming up and I’m hoping to get 6,000 words in at least one of the days.
