I stumbled upon Scrivener last spring while searching for a writing program to help me streamline my process.
Until then, I solely relied on MSWord and had two approaches to my keeping my stories organized. Some were broken into chapter files, while others were massive documents that I would have to scroll through to find where I’d last worked. (Those always trapped me into editing as I found my place to begin for the next day.)
My search criteria: reviews, functionality, and price. For me, Scrivener met all the requirements.
chapters appear all at one time and can be broken down into scenes,
there’s an option to create setting descriptions and character sketches,
and a cork board for brainstorming or posting ideas is provided.
Scrivener won’t write your story for you, but it helps streamline the process. What is your most helpful writing tool?
