Crash, bust, and rebuild

The software that I have been using to build my web site came up against another serious limitation. The “resource management” module crashes when it gets too many files, which makes it no longer useful.

This has prompted me to start over with a fourth version. I’m going to leave the old one up on the web as a demonstration, while my active one is being kept in text format’ I’m using Scrivener and not trying publish it, among other reasons because it is build for large projects. Although I don’t have the same ability to use hyperlinks, the creation and maintenance of those links was a major time sink. Since I have the old version still available, I can transfer material as needed. so it isn’t lost.

This will allow me a flatter form, so I can work on things like lists of schools and corporations, literary works, and more biographies, and it’s not quite so concentrated on history.

I can also keep track of sizes and progress. I now have over 40,000 works of text in just under two weeks of work. I would be doing well to write 50,000 words of fiction in a month, so I can measure my production.

I still have an interest in beginning history at the beginning, and I’m dabbling in historical fiction. From my previous work, I already have an outline of early prehistory developed that I can use and adapt.
