A homage to Literature and Latte’s Scrivener writers’ software
I could not have got this far without the best software I ever used: Scrivener. I bought this when it first appeared for the PC last December and have become an evangelist for it. I had been writing my book for several years and was losing heart, dragging myself around a huge unwieldy set of Word documents, struggling with editing, formatting, and unwanted duplications. Quite frankly it has transformed what had become an unpleasant task, into what is now a sheer delight. I wake up each day excited about spending time with Scrivener. I regularly export my 100,000+ words draft book to my Kindle, so I can see just what the readers will see, and spot those hidden typos. Scrivener can provide a range of e-book output formats, including .epub and .mobi (the Kindle format), in addition to all regular .pdf and .doc etc. formats.
Scrivener is without doubt the best value software that I ever bought (and I have bought a lot). It only costs ~£30 for the Windows version. To think of the hours I wasted messing with formatting in Word when I should have been creatively writing, and had forgotten the sudden spark of inspiration that I was about to write. Scrivener is free for 30 non-consecutive days, you could even get a short book written in that time! How to self publish quickly
I have no connection with the company, but I Love Scrivener!
