Finding tools to make writing easier can be work itself.
Been spending the last few days evaluating the Scrivener software package. While still not remotely finished looking and learning all the features, this product looks promising for the serious writer.
If you’ve ever looked at the process of writing as trained in the days before newfangled electronic devices, the Scrivener interface(s) and tools will be very familiar. Corkboard, Editor, Outliner – even the ability to tie electronic notecards to the text in your documents to keep track of your thoughts – all there and more. Would have made school theses a lot easier back in the day if I could have done all that electronically.
But here, instead of me telling you, let’s let someone show you at this link on YouTube.
If you want to explore this software at no cost for 30 days on either Mac or Windows platforms, the link is http://literatureandlatte.com/trial.php.
NOTE: I’m not affiliated with Scrivener in any way. I will admit that I’m leaning towards getting this software after the trial period at this point. It appears that good – but I still want to give it a real world trial.
