Is Scrivener worth it? Watch and decide for yourself.
As software updates all the time, some of the buttons on the Scrivener user interface have moved. For an updated version of the video go to: Scrivener | A Quick Review of How it Works 2019
This is Karen from kazzprince.com In this video, I show you how the main features of Scrivener work by giving you some real examples of my own writing process and giving you some Scrivener tips along the way. Then you will see how Scrivener can save you time and money and revolutionize the way you create and publish your books.
For those of you who are writing a book, the basic concept behind Scrivener is quite simple. Instead of having your manuscript, notes, and research scattered all over your hard drive, you get to organize them into one project where they are easily accessible at the click of a button.
Your manuscript itself can be split into large sections like chapters or chunked down into smaller sections like scenes — which can then be re-shuffled as your project takes shape and can be viewed in multiple ways depending on how you like to work and what task you are performing at the time.
And what’s also really cool about Scrivener is that when you are done writing, you don’t need to go looking for someone to format your book for you and then wait for them to do it; you can compile for export quickly and easily to multiple platforms from right within the software.
Scrivener allows you to compile for export without altering the original manuscript, so you can literally publish an eBook and immediately afterward switch to a paperback or a PDF.
I should just mention here that this is not the kind of software that writes the book for you, or tells you how to write a book.
It is word-processing software with added functionality specially designed to optimize the work process of:
Academics and Students,
Biographers and Memoirists,
Business and Technical Writers,
Comics and Graphic Novel Writers,
Translators and many other people who work on long writing projects.
