Split screen option was #2 on my list of Scrivener Plus Points as it provides such a feeling of control over my content. From day 1, I've been using split screens for my NaNoWriMo projects and all other projects too. (Back in December 2015, I needed a third editing screen and pulled into play the Quick Reference screen too.) In October 2016, in the run-up to NaNoWriMo for that year, I wrote my first...

Lee Fox-Smith is my guest today. Lee and his family travel the world and are currently in Cambodia but, thanks to the magic of the Internet, he's here with us today. We will talk soon about Lee's new book,  The Vegan Argument: Why There Really Is An Answer For Everything, but, first, we're going to talk about Scrivener ...

Introduction using Scrivener You have to start somewhere and writing your Introduction is as good a place as any? And, of course, I'm using Scrivener. I'm now working on my second book, but applying the same principles that were recommended to me during my Self-Publishing School course last summer, when I wrote and self-published EDITING The RedPen Way: 10 steps to successful self-editing. What's my second book called? This one is one of three...

Today's guest is writer, publisher, Scrivener trainer and author of the Udemy course Scrivener for iOS, Steve Shipley. Rather than discussing how Steve uses Scrivener for writing his two books and scriptwriting stage plays, today's blog post focuses on how, as an early beta tester for Scrivener for iOS, he came to write his course: Scrivener for iOS, available to my readers at 70% off ...

How to develop a writer's presence online Last Sunday, I attended a full-day workshop. The class comprised novel writers, short story writers, a poet, and several bloggers - a truly mixed bunch of writers, all keen to come to grips with the technology of websites, social media opportunities and the mysteries of the Internet. Why did I drive a round trip of 167 miles? I already have a website, and a presence on Facebook...

Today's guest is Alinka Rutkowska, fellow Wrimo and Scrivener fan.   Back in March 2016, Alinka shared how she uses Scrivener in her writing. Since then, she and I have been talking and finding that we have much in common. We're learning all the time, and we make mistakes along the way. We both want to share what we've discovered, to help other writers enjoy the same success we've had, without the setbacks. We...

  There's a lot to learn with self-publishing but, if you listen to indie experts like Joanna Penn, you'll know already that one book is not enough for any writer. One book is not enough That's not because we can't stop writing. It's not because we are addicted to the process of sharing our thoughts with an unsuspecting world.
