What was your summer read?

23 Aug

Have you read a lot of books this summer? Are there any books you want to read soon?

I managed to finish quite a few books. I read the 2nd book of the ‘Game of Thrones’ – series, some fantasy and criminal novels, and Orson Scott Card’s famous novel ‘Ender’s Game’.  Right now I’m reading some criminal story by Kathy Reichs. And my bus read (do you also have something like that?) is the very good ‘Eating Animals’ by Jonathan Safran Foer. It’s very moving.

 

Plum cake with coconut and meringue topping

20 Aug

Not a complete success but not a complete failure either: this plum cake was loosely based on a recipe I had found in a magazine. The cake base turned out a bit too hard and it looks a bit messy but it tastes pretty good. I love the coconut taste and the meringue topping. ❤ Do you like plum cake? Do you know any good recipes?

Writing: Practical tools part 1

18 Aug

Lately I’ve been trying out Yarny. Yarny is an online writing tool. So far, I think it’s very useful. You can set a word count, write and arrange chapters, save snippets (characters, places, and things) and it automatically saves your work regularly.


I think it is very practical, user-friendly and intuitive. You only have to create a free account to get started. There’s also a pro-account (with a monthly fee) but there’s nothing I miss in the free version so far. You can also easily export your text, but so far only as a .txt file (maybe a minor drawback) and there is also some support if you want to publish your work immediately as an e-book (though I haven’t tried out that feature yet and can’t tell you more about it).

To sum things up…

Pro:

-word count

-intuitive usage

-flexible use of snippets and chapters

-free version after registration

-automatic saving feature

Contra:

-export to .txt only

-only works while you have internet access
