writing prose with marked

January 12, 2013

Yesterday I got the urge to write some fiction. This has been a decreasingly frequent urge for me, so I seized on it.

I did write a little but I ended up spending more time creating a Marked theme to help me write. Ain’t that how it goes. I set up a GitHub repo to share the theme and any others I may make down the line.

The goal is for me to be able to write in my programmy, vimmy text editor on one half of the screen and for the other half to look as much like a book as I could manage. Also, it prints out nicely (not that I print things, except to PDF). Some of the design features:
