For the last, oh I don’t know, one, two years, my friend has been shouting from the rooftops about Scrivener. While she constantly raved about it, I wasn’t convinced. Of course, I didn’t doubt the program and it’s benefits, I just have had my own process for the last 5 years and I really wasn’t open to trying anything new.
For those who don’t know me, I don’t really like new things. Call me an old fashion, fuddy duddy, but I like the known. I like the comfortable. I don’t like stepping out of my little box. Do I know this is quite possibly a fault of mine? Uh, yes, but at least I’m honest. LOL.
With all that said, however, in launching Long Valley Press, I’ve decided it was time to step into the world of Scrivener. Certainly, I still like my old way of doing things, but for the sake of helping with formatting and such, I decided it was time to stop ignoring the nagging voice in my head that I need (and will love) this program.
I’m still in the process of digging into the depths of the program. While I don’t really like learning new stuff, but once I get into something, I dive in and learn all I can. I’ve had the program all of about 6 days and so far so good. Of course, there are features I don’t really care for, and some that I think are great. But, isn’t that the case with any program? All in all, I think it will be a good purchase, and who knows, once I learn the deep ins and outs, I’ll probably be shouting from the rooftops that any writer who is a writer should have it.
So darling followers, how many of you use Scrivener? Do you love it? Or could you live without it?
