Getting to Know Scrivener
In this part . . .
When a friend first told me about Scrivener — “gushed enthusiastically” might be a better description — I wondered what writing software could possibly offer that a word processor can’t. So I downloaded the free trial, and three days later, I paid for it, not even waiting for the trial to expire.
I knew I had to have Scrivener in my life.
Word processors are wonderful pieces of software, and they definitely have an important place in a writer’s toolbox, but Scrivener opens up a whole new way of putting together your story, poem, screenplay, dissertation, epic novel, or blog post.
Simply put, Scrivener puts you in charge of how you write. This part of the book introduces you to the fundamentals of this amazing program.
