For years, I’ve had the Scrivener software on my computer, but not found time to use it until now.
Why not? On first sight, this sophisticated package looked so complicated, even IT-savvy me was put off. Writer friends were raving about how brilliant Scrivener was, how it transformed their writing, but I wasn’t listening.
Why now? Fate intervened. A friend sent me a link to a video demo. Tempted to watch, I was amazed by Scrivener’s power and potential.
Boy, did I feel like kicking myself!
All those draft NaNoWriMo novels, in Word, and my research notes in a state of total disarray!
This November, I’ll be writing my sixth NaNoWriMO novel and I will most definitely be using Scrivener software. I might even change from being a pantser to a plotter. Who knows!
So, as the ScrivenerVirgin, in the next few weeks, I’ll be reporting on my incredibly steep but enjoyable learning curve, mastering all that Scrivener software has to offer to us writers.
Want to join me? If you’ve had Scrivener software on your computer but never got to grips with it, this is your chance to hitch a ride. You’re planning to take part in NaNoWriMo 2015, you too could be writing your next novel in Scrivener software.
