Ever have those moments when you discover something new and go like “how have I ever lived without this before!!”? Well, I kind of have that with Scrivener. I might actually be one of the last authors on Earth (sometimes I do like to exaggerate) that discovered this writing tool just now. For the last 4 years I was using one main Word document for my manuscript and several sub Word docs for my notes. I also had paper notes all around the house. Well, no more! Thing is, with Scrivener you just need 1 program that does it all.
Since a picture says more than a thousand words I will show some print screens.
As you can see on the left a manuscript is already divided in the Title, Synopsis, chapters etc. Since I use 2 main characters I have made the chapters of Kellsey yellow.
Another great Scrivener feature is the option to have character sheets, and notes and organise them any way I want.
Scrivener, of course has so many more options, and I’m sure I will discover them in time. What I can say for now is that Scrivener helped me write 50,000 words in 2 months. So, if you are serious about writing and want a great writing tool try Scrivener.
