Literature and Latte – Scrivener

Really love this piece of software and just waiting for the day that I have a valid excuse to buy it for myself and then to use it.

Writing a book – or even a single short story or research paper – is about more than hammering away at the keys until done. Research, scrawling fragmentary ideas that don’t seem to fit anywhere yet, collecting faded photos from old newspapers, shuffling index cards to find that elusive structure – most writing software is only fired up after much of the hard work is already done. Enter Scrivener: writing software that stays with you from that first, unformed idea all the way through to the first – or even final – draft. Outline and structure your ideas. Take notes. Storyboard your masterpiece using a powerful virtual corkboard. View research while you write. Track themes using keywords. Dynamically combine multiple scenes into a single text just to see how it fits. Scrivener has already been enthusiastically adopted by best-selling novelists and novices alike – whatever you write, grow your ideas in style.
