The Speculative Fiction Showcase interviews Vincent Trigili, author of the Lost Tales of Power series.
Apple or PC?
Hmm, how about oranges? I really love oranges! They are one of the best foods ever! They also make the best juice ever! You do not want to peel one if you have a paper cut though, just trust me on this. Pouring the juice from them in your eye is not advised either.
Oh, you probably were not talking about fruit. Sorry! In my daily work life I use various versions of Linux, Windows and Mac, but my home machines are all Macs. I fine the Mac OSX to be easier to work with, and I love the retina screens.
Do you use Scrivener or Word?
Scrivener is a great program – for a different kind of writer. It is really designed around the plotters and outliners. I am a discovery writer which is a technique does not work well in Scrivener at all. I have used it, and own a copy, but I crank out my novels in MS Word 2011.
