    I pretty much exclusively use OmmWriter nowadays, at least for drafting. Scrivener just annoyed me after a while - the organisation features were okay, but seeing as I like to work distraction free anyway, I have all the notes scribbled on notepads.

    Plus, Amazon now reject .mobis compiled with Scrivener, as it doesn't reach the proper formatting standards.

    I'm still using my Word and Excel combination :-)

    I need to get some planning done.

    My books, contests, reviews and author interviews on my blog

    That's a bit of a bugger. Calibre ftw?

    Edit: Actually, it seems Scrivener uses Amazon's own KindleGen to output .mobi files now, so it looks like that particular issue might be fixed.

    It's always used KindleGen, but there's something about the output that means Amazon get a bit annoyed about it - something to do with how it handles HTML tags.

    Calibre is also a no-no, now. The preferred way is to dump it all in a Word document, format it, save it as HTML and then run it through this - http://word2cleanhtml.com/ - then let Amazon's website handle the conversion to .mobi.

    Word for writing (sheer familiarity makes it low-distraction for me) and Scriv. for editing - not that I do enough of that. Some notes either in notepad files littered across my desktop or the majority in physical notebooks.

    Unless anyone has any objections I'll start a new thread on Oct 1st for the impending fresh madness.

    Well, what a faff. Good to know, though.

    By all means.

    That does, however, mean I've only got a month to finish off Able's adventures from last year. No way am I starting a new one with 2011's left hanging.

    18,000 words in a month?

    Pfft.

    Piece of cake.
