Grinding Away

Three days in and the sheer mountain of information we’re planning on disseminating is daunting. But we’ve got the site mostly wireframed now, which makes the task at least possible. Chris is a beast at creating guides and articles while I’m massaging the website into shape and editing what he sends me.

I’m especially excited about the genre guides. We’ve roughed out a format for them, and I think they’re going to be a resource that our members will return to again and again to keep them on the path to writing success. They’re going to be a bear to create and keep current, but they’re going to be an amazing resource—a resource that doesn’t exist anywhere else.

Only little speed bump was I had to drop our old forum software and put in a new one. I have no patience for a plugin that doesn’t work out of the box at this point in the process. Better to spend the time to find one that works perfectly—or at least doesn’t mysteriously drop Chris as a member. But we hadn’t done much work on setting it up before it gave us problems. Not too much time wasted. The new software (actually, an old standby that I was looking to upgrade with the newer software) is working great.

Hopefully, any problems we run into in the future will be as easy to fix.
