Create Your Writing Projects with Scrivener

Scrivener2Logo-resized

Scrivener is my favorite application for writing. Instead of the flat format of MS Word, writing is envisioned as a larger, fluid project and Scrivener makes it possible to organize your research, rearrange parts or scenes in a manner that is simple and stylish. If you’re interested in learning more about Scrivener, you may want to read Ryan Cordell’s post “Scrivener, Scrivening, Scriverastic.” If you’re looking for more tutorials and information about Scrivener, check out the website: Everything Scrivener.

The application is available for MAC and Windows and is priced between $35 and $45 depending on the platform and license.

I don’t know that it’s changed my approach exactly, but it has made it a lot easier, because it fits so beautifully with the way I work. :)

I’ve also found that it’s useful for lots of other things – for instance, planning a garden. :)

I wish I’d had Scrivener when I was writing university essays and theses as I struggled manfully to bend Word, Nisus and other w/ps to my needs. I discovered Scrivener when I was writing a screenplay and wrestling with Final Draft. Now I cannot imagine another way to work. If producers didn’t insist on FD as a delivery medium I wouldn’t need anything else.
