Scrivener: A writing app for writers

If you’ve ever tried to use a typical word processing app to write a long-form piece, you know exactly how hard it can be to sift through content, edit and revise your storyline, and recompose your text. Scrivener is an app that’s made for writing professionals. It includes both word processing and project management tools in a single app.

Scrivener utilizes a ring-binder metaphor that helps you look at your manuscript as a whole. You can quickly flick to separate chapters and sections without a whole bunch of scrolling. It also lets you refer to notes and references with ease.

Similarly, a Scrivener mode lets you pull separate chapters or pieces and edit them as part of a single document. That’s perfect if you’re thinking of making major structural revisions to your piece. You can even step back from your manuscript and examine it as a whole, rearranging segments with a feature called Corkboard.

Not to mention, Scrivener offers all the classic text-editing capabilities you expect from a powerful word processor. You can add bolded and italicized text to help different sections stand out, or insert block quotes and smaller text sections to break things up. Worried about losing all the work you’ve already done in Word? An import feature helps you transfer all your previous work from Word and OpenOffice documents.

Scrivener’s full-screen writing feature lets you write in whatever form you like the best, Plus, your projects are automatically saved and backed up when they’re opened and closed. Accessible from your main writing devices for reviews and touchups, as long as you keep them charged, Scrivener helps the writer who never stops thinking about their work.
