Celebrate the Small Things: A Genius Week


 
Two remodeling projects finished this week and I'm loving it. My husband is a genius and one superman.
  •   Laundry Chute from master bath side to laundry room.
 

Hi Vince....Thank you!



 

  • Built in Ironing Board Cabinet fits between the studs.
Board is perfect size.

I wrote some and have to say I'm in love with Simon Haynes' yWriter all over again. Below is a look at the Storyboard feature showing 3 scenes per chapter. You can move the note cards around as needed. The color lines represent 3 character points of view.  







Have a nice weekend
 Everyone!

  3. Those projects look wonderful. I love laundry chutes. Mine goes from our bedroom closet down to the laundry room. A reverse chute would be even better. Maybe I should borrow the pneumatic tube system drive-in banks use!

  4. Clever husband! We need to catch up on this side of the Pond - I don't know of anyone who has one.

  5. I think I've started something :) It really has removed two hassle factors. I only wash full loads, so laundry piles up, and there was that large ironing board to unfold and put away each time.

  6. What a wonderful husband! If you ever feel like lending him out, I have a lot of work around the house that needs doing.

  7. Great improvements! Nice as the built-in ironing board is, and looking at it makes me want one, the truth is that I get my ironing board out only every few years. (I make a point of buying clothes that don't need ironing.) So it's not that big a deal to set up on those rare occasions that I need it.

    Oh, I recall that nice feature in YWriter. It really did have some nice bells and whistles. Scrivener has more, but it's not perfect, either. Now if someone would just combine the two ... plus have some of the features that work best of all in Word, it would be perfect. I am constantly pushing things back and forth between Scrivener and Word.

    1. Thanks! I so Agree. Good things in both. Scrivener takes longer to figure out but has more. I haven't given up on it. I like yWriter's export feature better at moment.

  8. That husband needs an extra hug! I love your laundry chute (horizontal!) We have one from the 2nd floor, but I have a teenage daughter who tends to stuff it too ful *grumble*. The ironing board is also a great idea. How practical!

    1. Oh believe me, he gets those:) Laundry's crazy with family at home. It's just my husband and me now!

  9. Wow, those remodeling projects are impressive!

    Never heard of yWriter before, but it looks like such a helpful tool, for sure. I usually use boring, ol' index cards to plot, so my eyes can have a much-needed break from the computer, haha. Best of luck writing!

    1. Thanks! Those note cards really work spread out on the floor. There's something to be said for working this way with our hands.
