Chances are, anybody writing a novel, screenplay or regular-old play has come to love and hate Word.
Whenever a piece gets long and complicated, Word starts to fail you.
After 5,000 words or so, it takes five minutes of fussing with the mouse to scroll around to where you need to work. Anything of length becomes a chore. Navigating your immense document becomes more work than writing more words.
This is where Gwen the Hernandez can help.
She is not only an author and blogger, but an expert at Scrivener, which is designed to help writers crank out stuff that is long. Especially novels and screenplays.
From using it, and writing helpful posts on her blog, she branched out and is now busy writing SCRIVENER FOR DUMMIES, and getting paid to be, I don’t know, some kind of world-class expert on the thing.
This is good for Gwen, good for writers and good for America.
Also, Gwen the Hernandez is blonde, wrote some kind of novel that was a finalist for some award, likes to puts on a gi to punch people / get punched and has ties to the Air Force.
It’s as if I have a female doppleganger on the East Coast.
Gwen, I raise my massive mug of caffeine in your direction.
