This is going to be a super fast blog post with useful links to sites that teach on Scrivener. Why am I posting a quick and dirty blog with resource links about Scrivener? Because Scrivener kicks ass. If you’re an author, you should use Scrivener. That’s my humble opinion. Not only as a word processor, but Scrivener does all this:
- It’s a storehouse for all of your research documents
- Storehouse for your character charts
- Storehouse for your character images
- Create your story outlines
- Additionally, you can track your daily progress
- Set writing goals for yourself
- Use the software as a means to better manage your time
- And it doesn’t end there. Once your book is written, Scrivener’s COMPILE function will transform your simple document into a format that ready for upload to Amazon, Kobo, Draft2Digitial, all of the online retailers
Yes. It really does all of that. And that’s not even an exhaustive list.
It’s fantastic that it does all of this, but that’s also a lot for an author to know how to do. Thus, my quick and dirty Scrivener resource list.
The first set of links are from Literature and Latte, the creators of Scrivener. They actually have a lot of resources on their site, so don’t limit yourself to the links below. Search the site! https://www.literatureandlatte.com
