Scrivener

The best writing software I have discovered is Scrivener. There’s a bit of a learning curve but it’s worth the time to explore. This is the layout that works for me but there are plenty of view options- corkboard, outliner, editor – and it’s easy to switch between them. Want to write with minimal distractions? Hit F11 and you get full screen.

How I Write

Visit  Literature & Latte website for details and see the endless options. Watch a couple tutorials. Download a FREE trial of the full version. Heck, buy it for only $40. It’s a bargain.

There are plenty of cool tools to use also. My favorite is the project target. Setting goals and tracking keeps me accountable. I need to set goals and track my project. Which brings me to my distraction of the day – the name generator. Wondering if I should change my name to one of these that came up when I used my Norwegian and English heritage to search: Diamante Vinje, Blessing Egge, Luvena Nicolaysen, Michaela Christoffersen, Jaclyn Juve, Avlynn Loe, Kacie Mele, Jeanae Nylund, Cherrill Gronlund, Lorenna Langlie.

Note, I do not work for Literature and Latte.

Uff Da.. I’m at 59,262 words, just a little behind.

    Hi Marjorie!

    I’ve been wondering about Scrivener. The name keeps coming up! At the moment I use Microsoft Word but I haven’t been 100% happy with it as far as formatting is concerned. My brother mentioned the fact that while you are writing in Scrivener, you can put notes on your document. I suppose it’s almost like adding a post-it note to your document (in my case the book I’m writing) so that you can remind yourself about something you wanted to look up later on when you go back to edit.

    I definitely need to check Scrivener out now! Thank you for the suggestion!
