  • Once we make sure all of the issues are taken care of, you may post whatever you like wherever you like. :) 

    That was sort of what I figured, and of course you know where I generally post my renders anyway.

    Yup!

    Here is the finished, raw render of the partial I showed.

    There is a handy program somewhere where you can create family trees for books and stories and such.  I'm not at my main pc I will try and remmber what it is and where to find it.  KM suggested it.  Might be helpful for your story.

    That would be Gramps. It's a free Open Source genealogy software program that I can't live without. If you have complicated character families to keep track of, I highly recommend it for all writers. While written for us Linux people, there are versions that also work on Windows and Macs. It's a great piece of software.

    Well... before this thread gets closed, I thought I'd take a moment to… "Harrass Ollie" per Darwin's instructions.

    Okay, "harrass" might be too strong a term. However, @oliverstwist, I've heard so many bits and pieces about this family, I really want to read the book(s)! I'm 64 now. Any possiblity they will be published in my lifetime?
    wink

    (Then again, maybe harrass is the right terminology… LOL)

    Hi L'Adair!

    Thanks for all of the interest in the story lines we've been writing for ...hell...14 or 15 years now.   I didn't plan on an O'Brady wrting project but it could be I'm inspired.  November 1 begins the Nano National Novel Writing shindig https://nanowrimo.org/about ; Could be that November will be the beginning of a grand adventure.  Stay tuned devil

    Feckin' quote thingamabober thingie!!!  Thank you both for the offers!  I'll take you up on them.  I edit for self-published authors but waaaay overthink my own work,  I was planning on starting on Jeremy's story line as that brings all these people we created together. I lost 10 chapters when this crapptop crapped out.  Dar was tired of my excuses and got me a new one just for my writing.  Looks like i need to crack that bad boy open cheeky Best program to start working in?  I losy my key code for Word so I'll need a new one anyway.

    Thanks again for the interest and offers -O  devil

    @Ollie - Scrivener is an awesome writing program. It takes a little time to get the knack of it, but it's worth it. So many great ways to use it. If you catch it on sale, it's around $30 and you own it forever. I think regular price is $40. Totally worth it! I've written my last two books on it, I have at least ten more in various stages in it. You can sync it to Dropbox to so you can work on it from multiple computers or devices. There's a Windows, Mac and IOS version. If you grab it, feel free to ask me for help. I actually applied to be part of their tech support team recently. I love IT and writing, so it's a match made in heaven!
