I have high hopes for NaNoWriMo this year. Maybe I’m a naive fool, but this time it feels different. πŸ“πŸ’»

    Any Aeon Timeline users here? I’ve had it a little while, but thinking of diving in for fine-tuning NaNoWriMo. πŸ’»πŸ“

    The cable tidy box has arrived. It makes the MacBook stand a little cramped, so I’ll do away with it for a while. Patty the Sasquatch and the yeti look great illuminated against the Nanoleaf hexagons. πŸ’»πŸ˜πŸ“

    A MacBook computer sits below a wooden box, perched on which is a Sasquatch and yeti figure illuminated against lights. Circular HomePods sit each side of the box.

    That’s DEVONThink emptied, with hundreds of bits of information split between Notes, Safari (Bookmarks & Reading List) and photos in the Apple ecosystem. It’s a great piece of kit, but as I use my iPhone and iPad mostly, I can’t afford to renew DEVONThink To Go. πŸ’»πŸ“πŸ˜

    I’m going through my long abandoned DEVONThink and deleting/distributing everything I dumped in there over a couple of years. It’s mostly ideas and research for all the books I plan on writing, but always put off. πŸ’»πŸ“

    Readwise and Reader - Irreplacable?

    After cancelling almost every subscription in favour of the Apple ecosystem, I’m struggling to find a workflow to replicate the majesty of Readwise and Reader. I’ve almost, but not quite, got Notes to try and keep things in place, but it’s not the same. I know Notes has its place in my workflow, but it can’t do the things Readwise and Reader can in bringing those long forgotten pieces of text to the forefront and doing it so unintrusively.

    And in that geeky news, I’ve ordered some Nanoleaf hexagons and plan on pretending my writing area is a Tardis. πŸ’»πŸ“

    I’m having a little tinker with Aeon Timeline 3. Had the app for a while, but didn’t dive too deeply as it seemed to be so utterly complicated. I’m slowly starting to see the power of it. πŸ’»πŸ“πŸ“š

    NaNoWriMoβ€”Week Three.

    Just over 41,000 words written and despite running out of road, I haven’t stopped driving. Or learning, there’s been plenty of that as well. Things I’ve learned:- As Terry Pratchett so eloquently said, There’s no such thing as writer’s block. That was invented by people in California who couldn’t write. I actually thought this was nonsense, to be honest. The unfair ramblings of a genius writer. I imagine, now, he had days that he had to drag the words out, but writer’s block?
