Scrivener is the best software investment I’ve ever made. The flexible way it lets me organize the bits and pieces of a project is a lifesaver: having my research, my detailed outline, and and all my character sketches and fact sheets in one place alone has saved me hours of time. (How I wish it had been around back when I was writing my thesis!) This program does so much I’ve barely scratched the surface even though I’ve been using it since 2008. Once I read Scrivener for Dummies, I’ll probably be even more in love with it. If you’re a writer and aren’t using it, do yourself a favor and download the demo.
