Working on non-fiction (a fourth edition.)

There are some major rewrites. New chapter. New case studies.

Each case study section (there are about 12 of them throughout the book) must be under 2,500 words.

It’s all new writing, and — of course — there’s a lot of opportunity to overwrite the case study.

It’s all technical writing. Scrivener is not my first choice for technical work because I need the file to be in Markdown format.

But. Scrivener has MultiMarkdown and Pandoc support. So. It may be slightly nicer to write even highly technical docs in Scrivener.

The impediment is having the compile before running some of the technical review tools on the programming examples. A programming language editor (like PyCharm) can run the technical review quickly and painlessly. Scrivener requires one tiny extra step.
