Scrivener is one of the many writing tools I recommend in my Tools of the Trade section. We’ve learned about how and why you should put together an email list, how to market your works through RSS feeds and how you don’t need inspiration to write well, but what about the actual writing process? The Scrivener for Dummies book is a wonderful place to start, but I also wanted to share some unique Scrivener tips to help you along the way.
I can’t express how easy Scrivener is to use, especially when learning how to write a book. Even when I need to get rid of distractions and use a more minimal word processor, I still always copy and paste back into Scrivener because its compiling and formatting features are the best in the business. And that’s the thing; no writer is the same, and I can’t expect everyone to constantly use Scrivener, because I don’t use it for every step in my creative process. However, I notice that authors and bloggers and writers of all sorts start to use the software more frequently when they learn how to actually use it the way it’s meant to be used.
