So ... Beholden
Rather a mess. Eight and a half years (! I couldn't believe it either, but the oldest files are all dated 16 May 2004 - which means I was probably thinking it all out late in 2003) of mislabeled drafts, chat logs, random notes and snippets saved in text files (probably from the AlphaSmart), various things on CD and DVD backup discs, and I still haven't found the file that I know contains the very last scene which I know
I wrote 2 years ago (when I decided to take down the two posted chapters in order to take away K's "established relationship" with J. Sorry, no puppies or rainbows anymore.)
Nice thing about using Scrivener, though - I can systematically shred each file down to its bits, toss the bits in the appropriate bins, then delete the random file, When I'm done I'll sort through each bin, get rid of redundant material, then save the whole mess in one place in a far more organized way.
was a bit of a mess too, mostly because I somehow lost track of which file had the really good outline, and so kept "Saving As" for fear that Briefcase would overwrite the good one - which meant I had quite a few files to do diffs on.)
Still, it does feel good to finally be wrapping up these stories after so many years.
