Check out the Staples circular for March 8 - March 14, 2015 for the above discounts. Don't know about the United Kingdom or Canada.

 

Happy discounted shopping.

 

Enjoy and good luck.

It's a pleasure. Bought a few things myself when others gave me the heads up.

Yes! <happy dancing> I use the Arcs & need more.

 

GP - Have you purchased the ARC punch? If you do that, you can use it on any type of paper. I have even used it on dividers (the ones already punched with three holes) and made my own card-stock thickness dividers.

 

I think I bought mine with some one of the discount coupons that Staples runs from time to time.

my ad states Moleskine planners.

 

Go to this link and then to page 19. http://weeklyad.staples.com/StaplesSD/WeeklyAd?storeid=2396175#!/store/2396175/promotion

 

In my screen 15.6" laptop, the Moleskine ad takes up almost the whole viewing area so I have to scroll up to see the ARC ad.

 

Good luck. Where are you located geographically?

Happily added to my Arc collection. I use 1 per manuscript, as well as tabbing by topics & adding handouts. These things are a writer's dream.

I'm not familiar with that paper - Step Forward Wheat Straw. Could you tell me more about it.

 

A search for more information here on FPN resulted in few and general comments.

 

Thank you for any additional info.

Mine, too.

 

But the ARC stuff looks interesting. I'll have to take a closer look if I'm near one this week. Thanks for the heads up.

 

Cheers.

My ink-swap post(s) become out of date eventually. My signature is always current. If you want to swap some ink, here's what I have: Diamine: Ancient Copper, Oxblood, Poppy Red, Red Dragon, Sherwood Green; Iroshizuku: Kon-peki, Ku-jaku, Take-sumi; Noodlers: 54th Mass, BSB, Purple Martin, X-Feather, Widow Maker; Private Reserve: Blue Suede. I'm partial to highly saturated inks, but am open to suggestions. PM if interested.

I use a small Arc notebook for my to-do lists at work. Didn't realize they had a hole punch. Interesting!

I got hooked on these while taking a class taught by a well-known author. With the punch, it makes creating style books for self-publishing a snap, series and book arcs are easier to track, character/plot/beat sheets move & shift. Unlike ring notebooks, the sheets stay in place with heavy usage &'they fold back on themselves. The paper that comes with them isn't bad, either, tho' the punch makes it easy to substitute your own. The sheer flexibility of the things is addictive.

Are you familiar with Scrivener? If so, what are your thoughts about it? I'm just getting started on a non-fiction book.

Adore it & I'm only getting started with 1 manuscript completed in it. If you haven't picked up the Gwen Hernandez book "Scrivener for Dummies" do so. I'm taking a class with her Saturday as my writing chapter thought it was worth flying her in. The ability to drag and drop both research and sections of your manuscript will have you wondering why you ever wasted time with Word. I'm fiction, so I haven't used the end notes and contents formats, but my academic peers swear by it.

 

I have to say the compile feature totally sold me. I was left with a ready to upload book I could send to editors or put on one of the big name distributors for self publishing. Just add cover art.

 

Plus the licensing is generous. I forget if it's three or five machines for under $40 if you catch a coupon. .

 

There are you tube tutorials to help, but simply playing with it went a long way. It comes with its own manual loaded, too.

 

I used the word targets to keep myself in the ballpark so I didn't go too far over or under my word count for scenes and there's one per project, so you can watch your progress if your publisher has a target word count.

 

The trial version is good for 30 uses, not 30 days, so you can take your time testing it. The only caveat is the cloud storage. Do NOT leave a second version open on another machine if you're saving to cloud storage or the first version opened will overwrite the second. Also be aware the backup files can run 2 gigs & take over an hour to save to a cheap thumb drive via USB 2, so plan your backups accordingly.

Thank you for the additional information and caveats. BTW are you on Windows or Mac? Don't know if that makes a significant difference as far as features and capabilities.

 

I bought a copy of "The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Scrivener" - your thought on this book would be appreciated. I will check out the Hernandez book.

 

Expect to be going on Youtube this weekend to start the "visual" learning process. Any added advice is welcome. You can always PM me if you like.

 

BTW, Bartelby is my favorite character (or such in my profile - :D ).

 

Much appreciation.
