Not for me, I’ll pass. But good to know this exists.
Perhaps it’s a way to show excerpts, to create interest, later on.

My (embarrassingly fawning) take on Scrivener, the writing software that makes you write.
Scrivener is great, as long as you remember to close a project on one computer before you continue working on the same project on another device. If you don’t your .scriv will be compromised and changes into .scrivx
This happened to me once, when I moved from laptop to desktop. Yes, that was a warning, and I wasn’t going to make that mistake again. I thought.
But then we were burglarized. I had left several projects open on one of the computers. The result?
When I opened Scrivener on my new laptop all of the open Scrivener documents that were open on the stolen computers were compromised. No, I haven’t been able to retrieve them.
Yes, I did have older versions closed and saved, but I lost six months of work on all my projects because I tend to work on different projects at the same time.
NOTA BENE: Always close your Scrivener project, you never know what happens.

The images remind me of my own childhood, until elementary school started, my parents and I would stay in the country from April through September. One of the reasons why we moved from Amsterdam to the country once I had to attend grade school. A vacation on a farm can be heaven for children and adults alike.
In her new book “A Thousand Darknesses,” Ruth Franklin explores the difficulties of writing about the horrors of the Nazis
In the new millennium many memoirs of survivors and children of survivors hit the shelves. Fiction is another story.
Fiction gives writers a poetic license, usually, but not in the case of something as sensitive as the Holocaust, any genocide really.
You can say whatever you want, as long as you get the facts right. Don’t mess with history, don’t mess with dates and years.
For messing with facts gives ammunition to deniers.
Some well written books have been published that run home the message of inhuman circumstances experienced during war time. Fiction is fine, as long as it tells the story of life and death better than non-fiction could.
