I decided to write about how I integrate Storyist into my workflow. Enjoy!

Looking at your screen shots I have to assume that you are using something larger than the 13" Macbook AIR that I use. One thing that plagues me when I get lots of things in the story is I end up scrolling up and down looking for things. Any suggestions.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Have been trying the split screen while setting up for the NaNo this year.
Will give thought to the extra monitor when we get home in the spring. Not sure how much help it will be because I seem to move around for writing. If the weather is nice I write on the patio, if it is not so nice then I am at my desk.
In the winter we live in a small motorhome in which space is at a premium so the AIR works perfectly and does not get in the way. Same thing applies about writing in different places either at the table or outside on a tiny table depending on how warm it is.

And here, somewhat belatedly, is my ode to Storyist 3: http://blog.cplesley...of-writing.html.
Very interesting article.
Like the screen shots to help understand how things are done by others in their usage of Storyist.
I assume that you are using a large sized monitor like Orren.

Thanks, Phil, Orren, and Thewitt!
Phil, I have an 21" iMac, so yes, a pretty big screen. I actually do use a setup like the first screen shot (Project View, text, characters as storyboard) almost all the time. I know it's more difficult to manage that on a small screen. But since the point of the post was to show what Storyist can do, it seemed important to make the difference between it and a word processor visible.
And the middle screen shot, with the double storyboard, would not be difficult to achieve even on a small screen.
