YES on one-step writer websites, YES to 5 free HTTS Live Chats, now scheduled

Zen Balancing Rocks o a Deck, New ZealandI’ve finally caught my breath on one of the wilder February/March combos I’ve been through.

So now it’s time for me to catch up on a couple of things that have been left hanging.

Writers’ One-Step Website Software. THAT’s a big YES.

First, Dan’s and my question about whether anyone besides me wanted a one-step writer website was a resounding YES.

So here’s the deal:

If you get on the BETA list and let us know what you want, take a few questionnaires that will let us figure out what needs to be designed and built first, later, and not at all, and/or participate in the beta testing, and when we have the various parts of this ready to go live, you’ll have the opportunity to get early-adopter discounts.

Some of these will be time-limited, some will be limited by number, some will be both, so you’ll need to act fast—but you’ll have plenty of notice beforehand.

    I’m interested in the software. I like Scrivener, but still have some problems with it. I’ve listened/watched two webinars on using it, but – must be me!

  • Claudette Apr 2, 2015 @ 13:44

    I have a feeling that this is going to be a very busy year. Oh, well. I can focus when I have to and still get through.

    Go for it, Holly.

  • Adaram Ontario Apr 2, 2015 @ 6:31

    Woohoo – so exited to see this coming to fruition for you, Dan, and all of us!

  • Grisselle Apr 2, 2015 @ 4:22

    I can’t wait to see what all the software can do! I have tried several writing software programs and I’m at a loss!

    As for the chats, thankfully I can attend the one for April 7th. Since I don’t have a flexible schedule, my times varies.

    • Holly Apr 2, 2015 @ 8:27

      You’ll be able to attend replays at your convenience. Unlike the first one, these won’t be on YouTube, but they will remain free and available in the Webinar room.

  • Katharina Gerlach Apr 1, 2015 @ 21:27

    I’m happy to see that the software is going to happen. 😉
    Thanks for cooking up the next step of awesome!

  • Soni Apr 1, 2015 @ 19:11

    Can’t wait to see the new software. Yes to both – although I’ll be interstate a lot this month.

  • Erin Z. Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:34

    Me, too, on if they’ll be available afterward. They are happening when I’m at work. 🙁

    • Holly Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:50

      I’m leaving the replays set up. You’ll be able to see all of them on your schedule. You just won’t be able to add any questions.

  • Kim Lambert Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:22

    Will the chats be recorded / available later in any form? I am in Australia, and they will be at 4 am my time, so I am not going to be on there live!

    • Holly Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:51

      They will be. See the question above yours.

  • Cheryl M Brown Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:22

    Hi Holly,
    Is it possible to download them after the chat? You always put them on at 3am — and I set the alarm and I TRY to get up – I really do, but so far I’ve only made one of the last two!
    Thanks,
    Cheryl

    • Holly Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:52

      You’ll be able to watch. I’m not at all sure about downloading. It’s new software, and I don’t know whether it’ll permit downloads or not.

  • Megaera Apr 1, 2015 @ 14:00

    The chats look interesting. How exactly do they work and what happens in them?

    For a couple of reasons (one, my experience with Wordpress is the polar opposite of Holly’s, and two, Scrivener hates my guts — while the feeling’s not quite mutual, it’s close enough so as not to matter [wry g]), I’m not interested in the software.

    • Sarah Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:06

      I was wondering the same thing.

    • Holly Apr 1, 2015 @ 15:49

      It’s pretty simple. You log in with your browser, I show up and answer the questions I’ve already received from writers, you ask questions into a chat window.

      If there’s time at the end, I answer those. If there isn’t, I save them to answer in a separate live chat. 😀

      • Sarah Apr 2, 2015 @ 8:28

        Okay, cool 😀

  • Elanor Apr 1, 2015 @ 13:54

    I’m so excited about the writing software and the webinars! 😀

    I love Scrivener, so it’s going to take quite a bit to get me to switch to anything new. I’m looking forward to seeing what you and Dan have up your sleeves. 😉

    I tried to sign up for the webinar, but when I click “register now” nothing happens. lol I’ll try again later. 🙂
