It’s our favorite day of the week… okay, may be I’m being presumptuous (not a word I use often). Really, each day is a blessing, but there is something about Friday that brings a smile to my face and some ease to my shoulder muscles. Before you jump into your weekend, I have some reading for you and a tool that I fell in love with in the past week.
Featured Tool: Scrivener
I was only going to blog about a tool once a month, but I had to share today. After checking out several Scrivener demos and downloading a trial version, I decided it was well worth it to purchase a license.
I’ve been wondering how I have written seven books without this software on my computer. We live and learn. I have now set-up two nonfiction projects and my next fiction book.
While I do love to outline my books, I have found myself having to move scenes or sections around which can be a bit cumbersome when using copy and paste in Microsoft Word. This product makes it very easy to organize your text and research together all in one place with the use of binders, folders and files.
The cork board feature absolutely rocks! Early in my writing I used to use index cards for my character sketches and scenes. I chucked that process because deadlines came at me way too fast. Now I can go back to using visuals.
Okay enough of me gushing about this product. I will break down the ways I decide to use Scrivener in a future blog post. In fact currently, I’m checking out blogs like that discuss how to use Scrivener for blogging.
