Creative Writing

09/18/2009 Leave a comment


I am a writer.

I am sure that whoever reads this knows this.

I have file cabs filled with cra….I mean, uh, creative output.

Most of it will never see the light of day.

I am truly focusing on 3 projects.  When I get stuck on one I will hop over to the other one.

This is how I hope to overcome my inability to finish a novel.  I have PLENTY of short stories.

Let’s put some names to these stories/novels/screenplays so I can reference them for future ranting.

1. ER


3. DS

I am currently pretty into ER.

I of course choose a moment that I really want to write to start messing about with my OS.

Who wouldn’t?


For those who don’t know I am a Mac guy.  I loathe Beelzajobbba:


He is a douche.

I could rant for HOURS about what a douche he is.

I digress.

I also love:


I have used them both.

I have been using the mac since like 84/89 I don’t know…a LONG time.

The Mac Plus was the first computer I bought new in 89.

I have been using linux since…hmmm…95?

I used it exclusively at work for a long time.

My new post requires Visio and Project and there are NO good replacements/read/write for those docs in linux ANYWHERE.  I capitulated and use Windows…with a LOT of cygwin for my job.


And putty:


Wow…I digress again.

Well sort of.

The point is that I was interested in being all linuxy for awhile.  There are things in ubuntu linux i truly prefer over the mac and vice-versa.  I grab the ol compaq (the first computer I ever owned that booted into linux FIRST.  I bought it, plugged it in and stuck a linux disk in and installed on it straight away) and stick ub on it.  Long tiresome process that as my fault.

I spent the next couple days after work looking for good writing tools.

Please don’t suggest EMACS….I am staunch Cult of Vi member.

I also do not want to use OOW.

On my mac (Casper VonWhitenstein) I use:


The Scriv.  Scrivener.  El Scrivaducci.

I love this software.  I think…

I know that it is the best out there for getting it done for me.

It has the old fashioned:


Cork-board view for story movement.  Seeing as behind me RIGHT NOW….there is a cork-board for this purpose should tell you how this is for me.  It also has:


Full screen baby.  I love that…  No distractions.  I, of course, being a dude, am visual.

FullScreenEvolvedI put pictures to one side and let that help the contemplation.  NM the crap to the left.  I don’t do that.  Just the pic, the text, and music.  If the dev team put an iTunes controller in there I think I would even REBUY my software.

I use playlists for each story.

I also use:


For the screenplay work.  Nothing comes close for screenplay work as Final Draft.

That being said they are a bunch of monkeyf*ck @sshole douches when it comes to pricing and…


I used to use :


Z write.  This guy has NOT updated even his webpage in forever.  I guess we can assume he is over.

In a prose writer.  You, if you are me, want a good NON LINEAR editor.  Scriv and Z both had this.  The doc contains the ability to make chapters and you just dump what you are working and move to random chapters as you will and write.  Scriv even one ups that with Full Screen and the corkboard.  It out puts to “ready to send” rtfs and what not.


What does ubuntu have?

Nothing that I could find through googling.




Came close.  You don’t have “chapter” insert.  But you can KIND of work around it.  Kate has spell check.  Big bonuses.



Has the fullscreen thing going for it.  What kind of word processor does NOT have spell check.

Lame.  It is a rip on Jer’s WriteRoom:

writeroom-main-screenIt DOES have spell check but is mac only.

I tried more than I could safely say.

I tried windows versioning of Final Draft.  Activation codes just kept failing.  Back in the Final Draft 4 days  I could wine that baby and have no worries.  I even used Final Draft to write my prose back in those days.

I know people are going to suggest :


Yes I tried it.  It has come a long way.  I googled and googled and could not find a way to export as an RTF.


So I would have to copy/paste and then reformat 120-125 pages for a screenplay?  NM if I was doing a novel.


Long story short (too late I know) I went back to Casper and he happily is my writing tool.

Apps make the box….oh….yeah…


Please do NOT write in suggesting the Writer’s Cafe product.  That thing is a hopeless mess of shit.  The storyboard was interesting for about 5 minutes.  It has some good Ideas….it is just executed by retarded monkeys.  The process of writing is hard enough.  To work with something that seems to actively make me want to punch myself for using it?

No thanks.

I welcome any/all ideas people have.

As I go digging about part 3 the re-return of the redux part 2

Another from 2005:


I built ‘stage one’ gentoo this weekend.
I will say that I learned a lot.
As a non graphic server I could see viability.
As a desktop I am not so sure. It took a day to build.
When I tired of Suse and it’s lack of multimedia support, It is SO slick in everything else, I slapped an ubuntu disk in and installed. I fired up Synaptic. I yanked EVERYTHING Gnome. I then installed tons of KDE and when that completed I fired up a term and installed the kubuntu-desktop. I hunted down a missing package in the repo (that irritated me).
Working Deskto machine, including my copied over Gmail in Thunderbird, in under two hours. We are talking CONFIGURED. different kernel, multimedia, the works.

(08:03:11) JerTWC: I saw that movie Jarhead this weekend
(08:03:19) Os Ignis: yeah
(08:03:21) JerTWC: its very American Beuty
(08:03:45) JerTWC: its about a sniper that goes the whole war and never gets to fire his rifle
(08:03:47) Os Ignis: so the main character gets killed by a man who wants some man on man action and is ashamed enough to kill over it?
(08:04:55) JerTWC: hehehehehehehe
(08:04:58) JerTWC: not exactly
(08:05:43) Os Ignis: Main character tooled around the streets in a big ‘ol Firebird getting stoned and trying to score with under age chicks?
(08:06:37) JerTWC: yes
(08:06:43) JerTWC: that is exactly what happened
(08:06:49) JerTWC: but in iraq
(08:07:19) Os Ignis: really?
(08:07:29) JerTWC: yup

When people bitch about America’s unfairness ‘blah blah blah’…
This will leap into mind:

German IT outfit Nutzwerk Ltd has come up with the perfect solution to whining in the workplace – it’s made cheerfulness a contractual obligation, advising those who don’t measure up to the prescribed level of jollity in the morning to stay at home until they cheer up. The plan was prompted by a female employee whose constant complaining prompted the other staff to complain about her complaining.”

(8:24:40 AM) Me: for a bit
(8:24:48 AM) Me: but you have to find a regime and stick o it
(8:24:59 AM) Me: set aside a min of 1 hour a day
(8:25:03 AM) JerBear: yeah
(8:25:07 AM) Me: pick that hour each day
(8:25:18 AM) Me: and write whether you want to or no
(8:25:33 AM) Me: listen to me
(8:25:35 AM) Me: like I do it
(8:25:42 AM) Me: but I know it is something that I have to do
(8:25:48 AM) Me: and I have started actually
(8:25:54 AM) JerBear: right now I don’t have anything… every once in a while I am hit with an idea that I start with but can never really finish
(8:26:01 AM) Me: well dude
(8:26:06 AM) Me: it is HARD f**king work
(8:26:11 AM) JerBear: no doubt
(8:26:13 AM) Me: the beaut idea comes and seduces you
(8:26:33 AM) Me: then you realize that idea is into BDSM…so you RUN……but if you let it catch you…you might just enjoy it

Scrivener is the tool I use the most outside of comp books.
