You want to write short stories, so let’s get started.
The window contains three areas:
Across the top there is a toolbar. The tools vary according to the context you are working in.
On the left is the navigation panel. For a Short Story project this consists of three sections, each of which contains a named item called a Folder .
YOUR STORIES containing:
All – a list of all the stories
Draft – a list of draft stories
Ready – a list of stories ready for publication
Set Aside – a list of stories set aside for a later date
Accepted – a list of stories that have been accepted for publication
Collections – named collections of stories
Submissions – named collections that have been submitted for publication
Magazines – a list of magazines where you have submitted stories
Competitions – a list of competitions where you have submitted stories
Commissions – a list of commissions for the stories
Other – a list of places where you have sent stories, eg agents, publishers
Research – a list of documents used for research
Trash – deleted stories
The third panel, filling most of the window, is where you will type text.
Preceding each item there is a small arrow followed by the name of the item followed by a number in brackets.
Clicking on a arrow expands the contents of the item next to it. However, at this point none of the items contains anything. This is indicated by a 0 inside the brackets.
