Keith, this is great, but you're supposed to be writing your novel.

There's only space for one in the procrastination cupboard, and I ain't coming, get on with it.

I just have one small request...

I demand that Scrivener do everything every application ever written can do - oh, and bring about world peace and all that jazz, too.

And it has to be under 1 MB. Just for fun.

Seriously, though, I don't see how anyone could possibly have anything negative to say about Scrivener. This is absolutely my pick for the 'Best Software I Ever Bought' award.

I know you're not here to read this, Keith. But I wanted to thank you for 103.
It's addressed all the issues in 102 that I noticed. Quick work, much appreciated!

In theory, there's no difference
between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I may not be very active on the forum but I am incredibly grateful. Scrivener is great and it keep getting better (in fact, it keeps getting better in ways I never thought it could!)

KB, Scrivener is the best result of procrastination I've ever seen. If this is what it takes not to write your novel, carry on. It's all legitimate, too - it's called (apparently) Structured Procrastination. See

This is a great one.

This one is lifted straight from the genius mind of John Perry, a philosophy professor at Stanford.

Read his original description, by all means. You even get to see a photo of him practicing jumping rope with seaweed on a beach while work awaits. Outstanding.

The gist of Structured Procrastination is that you should never fight the tendency to procrastinate -- instead, you should use it to your advantage in order to get other things done.

Generally in the course of a day, there is something you have to do that you are not doing because you are procrastinating.

While you're procrastinating, just do lots of other stuff instead.

So procrastinate away - you're working at the top of your productivity form.
