Extended Scrivener trial for NaNo 2016

Just a quick note to boost this particular signal:

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, to those who like to abbrev things 😉 ) kicks off on November 1, and to help people along with the month-long marathon writing event, Literature & Latte is offering an extended trial of their novel-writing software, Scrivener. You’ll need to download a special version of the trial software—NOT the one on the regular download page—but once you have it installed, you can use it all the way up until December 7th, rather than just the 30-day trial non-NaNos get. (Click the image below to get to the special trial page.)

If you “win” NaNo (hitting the 50,000 word mark on your project), you’ll also get a discount code for 50% off a Scrivener license, though anyone can save 20% by using the discount code on the page linked below.

I know most of you who are interested in NaNo probably already have Scrivener, but this would also make a great gift for the aspiring writers in your life. 😉

Also, I’m not making money on this. Purely a PSA. 😀

Because of this, I have an ever-growing library of books and files that I often use to run a play-by-post game with like-minded individuals. (more…)
