comment Very simple markup language for writing fiction
@sh1ftst0rm I checked your project. Good stuff. One question: why did you decide to come up with your own markup instead of extending Markdown? Isn't it easier, for instance, to type **word** instead of *{word}*?

comment Very simple markup language for writing fiction
@sh1ftst0rm Hey, I'm doing the same. I'm writing a custom Markdown parser in JavaScript, which includes stuff like scene breaks, smart quotes, and small-caps (e.g. ^^Small-cap text^^.) It outputs a clean Kindle-ready zip file (with table of contents and everything).
