New Chapter Edit Coming

I've begun work on the next update to Write Wise, which will bring about simplified chapter editing.

Currently, editing a chapter is kind of awkward – there's a special button to paste from Word (that sometimes doesn't capture italics properly), it's not possible to underline or bold text, and the editor is slow to load and cramped.

The new editor will make use of a more modern RTE editor. Pasting from Word (or Writer, Google Docs etc.) should be like pasting any other text (so long as you are using a modern browser such as Opera or Chrome).

Progress on updating the site has been slow, but this isn't due to a lack of interest or commitment. In 2015, the foundations for the new Write Wise were set down and those foundations are as solid as ever. I've been busy with other projects and other commitments, but my commitments are finally starting to taper off and Write Wise will get my attention again.

When I get more time, I also intend to begin serious work on my novella. I've got a plan set down – this will be my first planned story in many years – and I'm looking forward to writing it. I hope everybody's well and I look forward to reading your future WW contributions.
