I’m sure this is one of those programs which everyone has been using except me, but today I checked out a program for writers called Scrivener. Apparently it’s been around for years for the Mac, and is quite popular among Mac users, but now they’re doing a free Beta for PC users as well before it becomes fully released.
It seems like a useful program, although I’ve just started playing with it, which is well designed to help writers organize their work and keep organized while writing it. It really combines a couple of the planning/organizing techniques that were mentioned yesterday in the article about plotting and planning your story into a single tool that works alongside the writer. Since a lot of writers seem to already use the Index Card method this would fit right in! Give it a look while it’s still free, it might work for you!
