On the weekend I did something impulsive, I purchase a copy of Snowflake Pro. This is software associated with the Snowflake Method of Writing a Novel. I figured that since I use that method to plan my stories all the time, it would be worth buying the software. I’ve had the software for five days, but unfortunately haven’t had time to really try it out, so I can’t give an opinion on it at the moment. I’ll do that once I’ve used it thoroughly.
The software sells for $100 (US dollars), but if you buy a copy of the creator’s book “Writing Fiction for Dummies” then you get the software for $50. I downloaded the Kindle version of the book for $13, got the software for $50, which means I still saved money. I intend to read the book soon (Monday, probably). I also intend to start using the software soon (as early as tonight, if I’m not too tired when I get home from work).
I have a high opinion of the Snowflake method, so I expect to get a lot from both the book and the software. I’ll report again on both soon.
