Scrivener Books and Tools

Scrivener Books and Tools
For the past half of a year, I have been working on a book. As I have come to learn, it is a huge undertaking; however, the process has been made much easier with a wonderful program called ScrivenerScrivener allows me to focus on the writing process. It has helped me to easily outline and write my book as well as manipulate sections. With Scrivener, I can easily rearrange sections of the book. Scrivener is much easier to use than writing in a normal word processor.  Writing my dissertation would have been much easier had I used Scrivener. To get the most out of Scrivener, you will have to take some time to learn it. Personally, I purchased Scrivener Superpowers: How to Use Cutting-Edge Software to Energize Your Creative Writing Practice to help me learn it. The book was a huge help.

This list includes links to the Scrivener program for both Windows and Mac as well as to a collection of books to help learn how to use the program. There are other books that show you how to write a novel using Scrivener. A good book can put you on the fast track. If you are a writer, I recommend Scrivener, also one of these books may help you get your next book published quicker.
