My take on Scrivener

A few months back I decided to try out Scrivener. My WIP was getting somewhat large and I thought maybe the software would organize things better than my gazillion post its and pages of notes.

And to my surprise it did. Now, don’t get me wrong, it took about a week to get used to the program, but since then Ive worked with it exclusively, so i decided to purchase.

Pros:

Organization of characters, scenes, world building & background.

Research folder at my fingertips, I’m able to highlight something and refer to it instantly no matter where it is on the manuscript. Which I do a lot….

Cons:

I kind of have to be at my laptop to add new writing, i think there is a way to have the program on my usb drive,I’ve yet to figure out how. But im okay with that. Id be bringing it to work…and we know how that would go, I’d get no work done.

I haven’t explored the whole of the program yet, and im sure there are many options available to me that I haven’t explored, but as a whole, I like it. And I’ve written more words per day since Ive used it…i don’t know if that’s all in my head, but i feel good. And if I feel good, my writing takes on that mojo, and its clear skies.

So, in my opinion it is a good program and worth a look into at least. The price is fair ($40.00), but there are discounts available online if you search around. The 30 day trial gives you the chance to try it out. Now I by no means am trying to promote the program, it just works for me. And if something is working with your writing, its always a good thing.

Keep imagining, its our writing fuel.
