The forum description says to boast here. Well, OK then, if I must... . My first book, written entirely in Scrivener, is out now. It's the book I mentioned here some time ago in this thread. Scrivener turned out to be an excellent tool for this book, a kind of lexicon of an academic subject (linguistic pragmatics). Each headword has its own document in the draft folder: 228 in total.

Many thanks to Keith for Scrivener. I have no idea if I would have been able to write this book without it and I'm very glad I didn't have to try. Thanks also to the community here for numerous tips and endless distraction...

Congratulations! Linguistics is fascinating and the book does look useful. I hope it brings you success of various kinds!

Who`s gonna argue with a Prof? :D

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

Not me. Or at least, not with that one...

Thank you both, Plette and vic-k!
