Taking part in the A-Z Blogging Challenge
This year I’m going to take part in the A-Z Blogging challenge.
This means I’ll be publishing a blog post every day in April (except Sundays). Just to confuse matters, I’m going to be doing the challenge on my Sett blog (which is new and in need of some posts).
My Sett blog is for more personal reflections – more like a diary-come-memoir – and I hope you’ll stop by there and read the pieces.

I just came across this excellent post – “MY **MARKDOWN** WORKFLOWS FOR SCRIVENER, BLOGGING AND EVERNOTE” – on the Hunting Down Writing blog. It’s both excellent and thorough and I urge Scrivener and Evernote users to check it out. I’ve had difficulty working out how best to use markdown as my default formatting method and the workflows presented here are great.
I work best with the visual – pictures, diagrams, charts – rather than text and lists. When I take notes, I tend to create them as mind maps. I’m also approaching 50 and thinking about what I want from the rest of my life and so, when someone mentioned Goalscape in a LinkedIn discussion, I figured I should give it a look-see.

I love the English language – the way that it so easily accommodates the creation of new words. Today, whilst clearing down my blog feeds, I came across

I love it.

Of course they had a poorly designed organizational structure; why else would their homepage have fallen into such disarray?

It’s only been live a few days, but already my Scrivener Resources page has received a lot of interest – thanks for coming by to take a look! I’ve just added a few more interesting blog posts and sites to the page so, even if you’ve already taken a look, please revisit.
I welcome comments about the selection and, if you have any choice scrivener sites that you think I should include, please let me know via the comments section on the page.
