The past few weeks have seen some serious progress on the build of the Novlr product itself. We have spent all of our spare time alongside our day jobs pouring hours of development into making Novlr the best, easiest-to-use Novel-writing tool around. Someone (undoubtedly wise) once said that it’s worth putting in the hard work to make things simple. And that’s what we’re doing. We intend to work hard on the usability and functionality of Novlr to make it the most natural and easy interface for you to put your valuable words into.
This week I’ve been looking into the chapter organisation and lists, adding new chapters and starting to look at the signup process. The signup process takes a lot of thought – taking into account logged in and out users, those that have registered and those that haven’t, forgotten passwords, keeping passwords secure and a whole host of other little considerations you don’t think about when first starting on “doing the login bit”. We are taking our time with this bit to get it just right and it’s all starting to come together which is cool. Thanks in large part to partner in development crime of mine, Art. He’s playing a big part in the build at the minute and I am sure he will get fed up seeing me soon if he hasn’t already!
We are getting pretty excited to be honest. We even started tweeting! We think we’re about ready to tell the world about what’s to come in 2014. I mean, in no time at all we are going to need some testers to give Novlr a ride – slam the doors and kick the tyres – ready to release it to every novel writer world-wide whose still fighting with a 200-page word doc!
If you’re reading this post in any sort of time period close to the date it was published then you are our hero! You believed in us at the beginning and we are excited to have you on board. We can’t wait to share with the world what Novlr can do and think it’s awesome you are here to take that journey with us.
