"One of the best writing software out there"

Opmerkingen: Overall my experience with Scrivener has been good, I try to stick to only the features I need and ignore the rest which is probably why I've yet to encounter any major issue.

Pluspunten: -Easy to use: Scrivener is easy to use (If you ignore all the extra features you probably won't need), even better when you load/start it for the first time, it opens a tutorial of sorts that explains different parts of the software and how it's used. Scrivener is really popular so there are lots of tutorials online on how to use it. -Auto Save: Unlike Work with can autosave every minute (If you go to options>save>) Scrivener autosaves every few seconds so you'll rarely ever lose your work. I'm a bit paranoid and since I have Dropbox on my comp, I save my work to a folder on Dropbox so I always have a backup of sorts. -Easy to Outline/Plan your novel: One of the reasons I use Scrivener to write is because it allows me to outline my book and arrange it in handly folders. So I have a folder for characters, settings, research, outline, rough draft, final draft etc. Like Evernote, I can save a link for research for offline use. depending on the content of the link, it can be exported into a text which I can read instead of going online. -Word Count: I use Scrivener for Nanowrimo I set a goal of 50k words in 30 days and with Scrivener I can count the number of words per chapter/per day/ and how close I am to achieving my goal of 50k words. Technically I can use Scrivener to convert my manuscript into an ebook, but I don't use this feature.

Minpunten: - Exporting your manuscript into an ebook is complicated as hell. I watched three tutorials on YouTube and it still wasn't easy. -No Android App: I have Scrivener on my personal comp and work computer, and I have Dropbox on both computers so it's easy to write from home or work, but I'd also like to have a mobile app so I can write on the go. There's an IOS app but no Android app, I hope they work on that.

"Powerful tool to energize your writing efforts"

Opmerkingen: When I first started using Scrivener, I was skeptical of the enthusiasm of my colleagues for the software, but it allows me to organize so much information in one application, that the benefits couldn't be denied. It serves you throughout the entire writing process, from brainstorming to publishing. And the tracking abilities keep you on your deadline during the entire time.

Pluspunten: 1. There's a wide variety of tools available in Scrivener
2. The Binder allows you to have your research and manuscript in the same window
3. The Binder is great for structuring your ideas without resorting to a different app for outlining/corkboard
4. Tools for tracking progress built in
5. Many options for publishing the document into a more standard format
6. The price can't be beat

Minpunten: 1. It's hard to get it to work well with syncing and maintaining format
2. It doesn't support markdown very well
3. It requires some effort to master

"Makes writing a novel so much easier"

Opmerkingen: It's easy to use, fairly intuitive, and it helps to break down a novel into manageable chunks. It makes the process flow more easily, and it can be used for plotting as well as writing the actual book. It takes away some of the overwhelm that you can feel when writing.

Pluspunten: The best thing about scrivener is the way that you can visually organise the sections or chapters of your novel, so that you can easily skip between them. It breaks it down into manageable chunks and stops it from being so overwhelming. You can label different sections, you can write notes next to the chapters, so you can see what you were planning to write, or what you want to achieve each scene, plus you can put in photos to help you remember what characters or settings looked like. It allows you to have the entire plotting/planning/organisation you need for a novel in one place.

Minpunten: It doesn't work as well in a PC environment. I love it on my MAC, and I tried to help a friend with a PC use it, and I couldn't figure it out.

"Scrivener almost deleted my entire book"

Opmerkingen: I would say it is a great tool for figuring out what chapters go where. I would say it is awful in every other way. I would not recommend this to my closest friend unless Scrivener finally fixes these bugs. It is a program that I feel has not been updated SINCE the 90s.

Pluspunten: What I do like about the program is it is wonderful to piece together and move around your chapter sections. For my upcoming book Goddess Protocols: A beginners guide to ageless beauty, I struggled with what sections should come first. In Office word you would have to cut and paste, and it would be difficult to see the layout. With Scrivener, it was easy to move chapters and sections around to get the perfect balance between words per chapter.

Minpunten: I use Windows, and for the first few days as I was cutting and pasting from word things worked great. Then the bugs started to occur. The first one was that it would freeze for 5 minutes at a time, which reminded me of when I was using the internet in the 90s, it was that slow. The second one was when I went to save the doc even though it said completed, it hadn't. So this meant all the work I had done that day was deleted. The third issue was when I loaded some photos into one of the chapters, and it completely froze again. The last issue was an error came up and the program just imploded. Fortunately right before that I had made 2 backups on a usb and my external hard drive.

"Amazing Software for "Re-writers""

Opmerkingen: Getting a software of this level for writing an essay or a blog post is an overkill. But anyone who is dealing with writing thousands and thousands of words that are at some point supposed to make a coherent whole, are likely to encounter blocks along the way that will just end up feeling overwhelmed. Writing is ultimately about re-writing, writing drafts fast and then writing even better drafts, and being a good editor when it is time to take a more critical look at your work and "to kill your darlings" as [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] calls it. Scrivener makes this process easier. It's suitable for people who write for a living or create so much written content that at some point in their lives they have read a style manual to become better at what they do. It may be once-in-a-lifetime project such as a thesis or a writing career, but if you are writing longer texts (and preferably are a Mac user), this is a software to check out.

Pluspunten: Scrivener can be a great choice for those of us who are always unhappy with their writing and churn out draft after draft, rearrange paragraphs endlessly, outline meticulously, and are just get too obsessive-compulsive about the quality of their work. It simply helps to produce better work faster and get over the so-called "writer's block," which is the too-often-result of perfectionism. The benefits of Scrivener are fairly simple. In many ways it's more comparable to OneNote than Microsoft Word as the user is not limited to a page view. Behind the screens, Scrivener stores text as simple RTF files that the user can splice and dice into smaller pieces of text like "notes" that can be arranged and rearranged as the user wants. But unlike in OneNote, the writer can view multiple "notes" at the same time, which makes it possible to view your work as a complete text. And to someone like me who gets distracted, easily, this simple feature was revolutionary. I could "eat my elephant" in very small chunks and hide the rest of the text but with a few clicks review the whole. Scrivener also has a very powerful outline view, which makes it very easy to visualize even whole book projects. It has a Kanban-like feature called corkboard that allows users to add descriptions to chapters or paragraphs in order to create a more coherent large text project. Writing statistics allow gamification and myriad custom metadata options enable bending the software to your personal writing habits.

Minpunten: I am a Windows user and Scrivener's team are clearly putting Mac users first. Scrivener 3.0's Mac version was made available in 2017 while Microsoft users are still in version 1.97. The latest version was initially promised to be ready for Windows users in late 2018, but after multiple delays it's now clear that the project is anything but a priority—which, sadly, made me eventually turn away from the software as for Windows users it's simply out of date with no light at the end of the tunnel.
