Have I told you all about our Lord and Savior, Scrivener?

I have an exciting opportunity that everyone's talking about.

Seriously though, it changed my life. I've also been using it a long time, so if any of you have questions about how to do something, PM me before you sort through the 500 page instruction manual.

My current saving grace is a little program called Cold Turkey that allows you to set a schedule blocking stuff (internet sites, or all internet, or any computer app) and lock it so that it cannot be undone. Then there's Cold Turkey Writer, which takes you to a full-screen writing app and doesn't allow you to do anything but write until you've hit a time or word count goal. Seems perfect for NaNoWriMo.
