The past few months I've noticed more and more writers who profess to using Scrivener. Even Authoress has mentioned on more than one occasion how much Scrivener has helped her.
I've been spending some time on Scrivener's website and these are the things that are attracting me to it:
- I wonder if Scrivener is like Final Draft. To me it seems inconceivable to write a screen play without using Final Draft. Obviously, I know one can write a novel without Scrivener, as I have done it several times myself. But would it make the process more organized and less confusing for me?
- I love Scrivener's motto: Outline, Edit, Storyboard, Write. It just makes the whole process of writing a novel seem so approachable.
- It allows you to organize your research files (images, movies, docs, etc..) within the program.
- There is a virtual cork board that you can rearrange index cards on.
- You can export your documents into multiple formats (even for e-readers!)
- There's a free trial download
