Scrivener - anybody use this software for writers?

Postby rsw2007 » Fri Nov 15, 2013 11:09 am

I saw an article on the software Scrivener and a post from a speaker at the last FW Conference who uses the above, but I wanted to know if anyone else has it, how they like it and/or is it worth the money. I have been to the website and read their testimonials. I'd like to hear from someone not associated with the product.

I am using the free trial but I will have to make a decision soon.

Your opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Hey Jacki,

I can't help with a personal comment, as I do not use it. My two comments, which you can take or leave of course, are the following:

1. I have heard many serious writers speak highly of it via podcast.

2. I think often we like the idea of writing and the tools of writing better than we do the actual writing. If you are not writing everyday and making progress now using Word, Pages, Open Office (enter any number of options here), you will not be tomorrow after you have purchased Scrivener.

Or maybe it's just me that constantly distracts myself with stuff like that :D

Mike

Mike,

Good points to think about. I think that is why I have been vacillating on whether to or not purchase. I still like using the low tech stuff - paper and pencil. Then at some point the writing gets transferred to Word. I think my answer is staring right at me.

Thanks for responding.
