Even though I love technology, it isn’t in my nature to immediately embrace new programs until I’ve heard a good number of people endorsing them. So when I first started hearing buzz about Scrivener, a software program that makes the creation of a manuscript easier, I intentionally ignored the hoopla. A few months ago, someone posted this video on Facebook, and after I watched it, I was sold. If you’re a writer, and you’re not aware of Scrivener, you don’t know what you’re missing! It’s an all-inclusive writing program you can buy for forty dollars that makes it possible to have everything pertaining to your project in one place.
I downloaded Scrivener to my laptop, and last week, I spent time fooling around with it. Once I felt comfortable with it, I imported the manuscript for A Woman's Worth, added all of my character photos, the storyboard, story notes and research documents into the program.
No more switching back and forth from Word to Excel, Google, Wikipedia, Dictionary/Thesaurus.com, Brainy Quotes, etc., every time you need to look up something. I can click into any of my documents on the left side of the screen.
So far, I’m loving it!
