Much icky-picky stuff going on, all very mundane.

I installed Scrivener on my primary machine last night and got it authorized.  Next up is putting Jutoh on it and testing end-to-end, from manuscript development to a Kindle ebook.

I think it'll be nice to have everything on the main machine.  I'm pretty sure I don't need 3 laptops
(heh), since I'm focusing on writing first, music second, and art in my spare time a single machine makes more sense than dedicating a laptop per function.  If I were going to go full throttle on 3D I'd dedicate a laptop to it, but.. eh.  No need.

In the next few days I need to bring Dead Ringer into Scrivener, set up a project for Threshold and bring the current draft into Scrivener, set up the outline for Threshold (yes, I have a nice bare-bones plot-arc outline), and create a project for all my general book ideas and notes.  I'll back this up to Google Docs periodically, this will make it easy to recover if something Terrible(tm) should happen.

Eventually I'll get a 16GB USB stick specifically for backing up, write an automated script, and have the damn thing back itself up nightly at 4:00AM.  There might be free/inexpensive backup software that would just save changed files, that's something worth looking into.

This weekend my Website will get updated to be a jumping-off spot for my Red Room page, and my blog here.  No point in trying to maintain 3 concurrent presences, most people visit here or Red Room already - I just need to be consistent and make sure sends folks to the Right Destination(tm).

Argh, need more coffee....
