Welcome back! Thanks to everyone who read my first post in this new Writing Adventures series that I’ve started. I really appreciate all the support and encouragement, so far!
Here’s the link to my previous post:
Today’s post is about a new tool that I’ve learned about, called Evernote. I was intrigued from the very beginning, and I wanted to try it out and see how it worked.
I first learned about Evernote from my friend, Madison (Madi) Grace.
Here’s the link to her post:
I love their motto / tagline:
Get organized. Work smarter. Remember everything.
Yes, please! I love it!
I took some time on Saturday, June 16th (yes, the same day this post was published!) to sign up for Evernote and start playing with it. About 10 minutes in, I love it. I really do. This is a game-changer for me.
My first notebook has the tentative title of my WIP, “Experiences From Camp.”
I’ll load my chapters in from Microsoft Word slowly, piece by piece, but for now I just wrote myself some reminders, and where I started with this whole thing!
Here’s what my notebook looks like right now:
“Experiences From Camp”
- I started this during NaNoWriMo 2012, which was my first-ever NaNoWriMo. I wrote around 10,000 words by the end of that month.
- In March, I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo for the very first time, thanks to Madi’s encouragement.
- During Camp NaNoWriMo April 2018, I exceeded my goal and won Camp! My goal was 20,000 new words. On April 30th, I surpassed my goal with approximately 20,256 new words! Yippee!
- June 2018 monthly goal: Write 1,000 new words.
- Sign up for Camp NaNoWriMo July 2018 before the end of the month.
- Set my Camp NaNoWriMo goal before the end of the month.
- Current word count: 34,130 words.
I also plan on using Evernote’s handy Note templates for creative writing projects.
I’m excited to keep playing around with Evernote. I love it already. Thanks again, Madi, for your awesome post!
Come back in about a month for the next Writing Adventures post!
