This makes post number three about that remarkable program I ran across, Scrivener for Windows. Originally designed for the Mac environment, I’ve already written in a previous entry about the utility and ease of use I was discovering as I became familiar with the program.
The true test of the program was using it to write the type of articles that I do, then see how well the final product compiled. So during the 30-day trial of the program, I’ve used it for some small jobs, then lucked out when a research article came my way that had it all.
Written copy. Footnotes. Graphics. A real kitchen sink of material that needed to be organized so that it referenced properly in the article.
Over 5000 words and three rewrites later, it was done. Scrivener helped me get there, since everything needed was in one place, not scattered over several different programs and files that needed to be hunted for.
Scrivener had come through for me with head held high.
Sure, there are some minor things still to learn about the program’s operation. That will come with time. For now, I’m sold enough that I pulled the trigger and bought the program at the end of the trial period.
I’m not affiliated with Scrivener in any way, beyond now owning a paid-for copy. If you want to give the program a try yourself, you can get a free trial version for either Mac or Windows at this link.
Let me know how you do with it.
