Scrivener is probably one of the most over-rated, over-hyped and over-priced pieces of writing software that has ever been created for the Mac.

And the masses of Scrivener adherents, like religious zealots, are being led lemming-like through the Red Sea, as Keith parts the waters therein.

Actually, I didn't want Keith's head to explode because of all the kudos he's been receiving for Scrivener so I wrote that last post . . . just to shake up the forum a bit.

I'll add my congrats and I heartily agree that Scrivener is a fine piece of writing software. It will help those of us who are published, publish more, and those of us who aren't, finally get published.

It's a wonderful piece of writing software, offered at a very fair price, by a supportive and talented man.

Thanks Keith.

Just have time for a quick note. Haven't registered yet because I've been at a workshop all weekend. I'll be doing so, however, first thing tomorrow!!! Call me any kind of Scrivener zealot you want, yes, I do love this program. After a couple of years of trying every other program I could find, it was amazing to find Scr., I admit it. And it's still wonderful to rediscover it every day. I don't care who thinks me a Scr. fanatic. :)!! I'll also post more reviews where needed tomorrow. I look forward to it!

Congrats again, Keith! And now we want to hear about your progress on that novel!!!

All day it’s been annoying me that I can’t write about Scrivener without unleashing a torrent of superlatives; it’s simply ridiculous that I’m so smitten with this software - and yet: is it my fault that Keith has created the best digital writing environment I’ve ever experienced? Every morning, I am so thrilled to sit down and set to work in such a wonderfully flexible writing environment, one that adapts so finely to my own working methods, this little digital workshop of my own; and I am truly happy for Keith and amazed that he has so profoundly touched so many of his fellow writers.

So: is it my fault that Keith has reduced me to reach (helplessly, inarticulately) for superlatives?

I suspect we’re going to hear a lot more about and from our fearless developer. Anyone who has the discipline, intelligence, and creativity to bring Scrivener to light - who can inspire so much affection from so many people who have neither seen nor met him - is bound to write something of deep & lasting value.

Thank you Keith.

jean-louis, you've just listed the contents of my application folder. Most of them I'd be happy to trash, but you'll have to pry MacJournal out of my cold dead hands!

Yes Lee, I agree. Macjournal is the perfect box of tricks a writer needs to store stuff that just goes into Scrivener when needed - project to project. It's also a great risk management storage house of everything in its raw state if it's ever needed. It's a conduit for everything that might be needed to write. I also use it to back up my Scrivener work because then the work on one project is available immediately for another project that I source from raw materials.

A lot of people use Devon Think in a somewhat similar way. So those two I would definitely save. All the rest, well jean-louis has done exactly what I've done. Goodness it feels good and very clarifying. I've even set Scrivener to open automatically now in System Preferences (Accounts) > Log-in Items.

So much hard disk space - its terrific.

Inquisition tribunal! I feel now like Gregory IX and his suppression of heresy... But after your glorious advocacy, MacJournal is rising like a Phoenix from the ashes... :twisted:

yippee -- I bought mine, too! :-)

By the way, were you going to submit Scrivener to the Apple download site? (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx)
That's where I usually look first for new apps and updates...

Thanks for a great piece of software -- I use Scrivener for both academic and fiction writing.
