I'm a novice programmer, writer, and love game design. (far more interested in the creation of a world than experiencing the world.)

comment Do You Use Any Version Controlling Software/Methods As Writers?
They are hardly "too complex" get something like TortoiseHG/SVN/Git to give you a nice GUI. For mercurial, create repo, commit every time you save. not really difficult at the basics, and for anything more complex, just a quick google search can give you the command you need to say revert to a previous revision.

comment Do You Use Any Version Controlling Software/Methods As Writers?
I also use mercurial, it is amazingly awesome software. I push my repo to a copy on google drive. I also use libreoffice and save in the .fodt format which is a flat XML file, which allows mercurial to properly do diff magic on it. Before that I was using HTML. As for Docx unless something was changed recently, they are still compressed files and not happily diffable.

Thank you very much for this post! I've been looking at Amazon for self publishing within the last few weeks, though right now I only have short stories and an unfinished novel.

I already looked at both of those, and the specific story I want to publish right now doesn't fit their criteria. Thank you though!
