Are you still writing your short stories and novels in Word or Google Docs? I did that for years until I received a discount on Scrivener for participating in NaNoWrimo several years ago. The differences between a general word processing program and fiction writing software designed just for writers totally blew my mind. I will never go back to writing long fiction pieces in Word.
I will admit that there is a learning curve with Scrivener. It takes some time to learn how to use all of the features, but it is SO worth the effort in the end. Rather than just giving you a place to type out your stories and save, this software will allow you to store everything together, from your outlining and brainstorming to character development and research notes. You can even lay your story out on virtual index cards! This is the ultimate software for all writers who want to take their craft seriously.
What Does Scrivener Cost?
$40 for the Windows version or $45 for the Mac version. This is a one-time expense!
How Can You Buy Scrivener?
Just click the “Buy Scrivener” link anywhere on this website. Look at the image below to learn more about the features of this fiction writing software, and then click that image to buy it for immediate download. While these are affiliate links that will give me a tiny reward for telling you about the software, that comes at no cost to you. I only recommend products that I have used personally and highly recommend. This is not my day job 🙂
Do you prefer to buy Scrivener from Amazon? Just follow this link, but note that it does cost $5 more than simply buying through my Scrivener links directly.
