Scrivener is a writing program, allowing you to keep ALL of our (WIP/MS) Work In Progress/Manuscript in one place, where you can access
it at the click of a mouse. Think of it like a 3-ring binder holding all the pieces of your story. Organize it with color and icons.
View it as a notebook, or cork board with note cards or in an outline.
I discovered Scrivener in 2012, by a friend raving about it. At the time I had been struggling for several years on a 400+ page opus. I, like the
majority of folks, in those days, were using Word. My research for the beast, was all over my hard drive. I’d spend an hour trying to find the correct
Since all 400+ pages were in one Word document, locating the spot I wanted to edit, took a while to pinpoint. I had left so many breadcrumbs in my
WIP, that I ran out of words to use for searching.
Scrivener enabled me to take my monster and divide it into the eighty chapters it had become and view all of them at one glance. I then color
coordinated them by plot and character, allowing me to see the holes in the story. Not to mention ALL of my research material was right there,
in the same folder, labeled and easy to find. I don’t think its too much to say that Scrivener improved my writing.
A staunch Windows user, sneering at those lesser people that used a Mac. In 2013 I’d had enough of wasting multiple hours every week to an update by
Microsuck. I switched to Mac, yes I moved to the dark side and became one of the lesser people. A decisions I don't regret.
Now a seasoned Scrivener fanatic, all the extra goodies I got with my Mac version made me a happy writer. :)
I’ve been using this program for the past three years on both PC & Mac, all of my writing projects, novels, blogs, tech tips, are all done with
Scrivener. I wanted to show people some of the features it offers.
