The world is in lockdown, everything “abandonable” is shut or closed down. Accept this invitation and make the lockdown your “writedown,” so now, in the weeks of the lockdown, write down your story.
Help you do this with the new feature in DramaQueen 3.1: ‘Output, Target, Progress’:
The new DQ Output & Progress Tracker now allows you to set writing goals and keep track of how fast you are progressing step by step. It shows you how much you’ve accomplished, whether you’re still on schedule, how much space you have left to finish the current chapter or story, or when your writing time is up.
Where can you find the new feature?
– In the new release 3.1 for the versions PLUS and PRO (the update is offered automatically and for free after opening DramaQueen)
– In the gear menu of the text view under ‘Output, target, progress’, whereupon another gear menu appears at the bottom of the status bar:
Here you can set which output should be displayed.
Depending on which output option you have selected, you can define the target, i.e. how many characters per scene, day or session you want to achieve. You can also define a negative target, for example if you are in the process of shortening.
The current progress is also displayed in the status bar – as a percentage and as a bar. If you are approaching your self-defined target, the progress bar turns green:
For example, a 90-minute script has about 100,000 characters. So if you set a daily output of 5000 characters and you actually create this output every day, you will have a first script version ready on January 10. That would be quite a start into the new year…:)
3 new test days
For those interested, we have unlocked 3 additional test days where you can try out the DQ output and progress tracker. When opened, DramaQueen automatically switches to the test version 3.1, which already supports macOS Big Sur (11.0).
We wish you to get out of 2020 and into 2021 well, health-wise, mentally, professionally and financially. Hopefully, the new year is under a better star. But before that, we wish you a wonderful and positively reflective and maybe even especially creative and positive Christmas!
All the love,
Your DramaQueen Team
