Using Scrivener to Get Your Most Creative Ideas Out There
What is Scrivener and Why Do You Need It?
As a writing tool, Scrivener’s greatest strength is to help you organize your writing.
Ideas come like pieces of a puzzle, but you can’t see an image until you collect a bunch of those pieces.
Scrivener’s model helps you see the work as separate chunks, then when you are ready, you “compile” the pieces into a final export.
Other common editors like MS Word, Google Docs and Apple Pages seem to expect you to know the order from the beginning.
