Just posted my review at GO386.com, the entertainment site for the Daytona Beach News-Journal:

Scrivener for Windows arrives just in time for NaNoWriMo

Every year at novelin' time, I spend more time and effort deciding how to write my opus than I do actually planning what to write. Anyone who has read any of my attempts would probably agree.

I've tried various other writing programs that promised to help organize me and my cascading files of NaNoWriMo story notes, outlines, reference photos, suicide draft letters and more, but they all seemed to be a) too awkward, b) too demanding that I learn to outline and write their way, c) too bloated and complicated, and/or d) too expensive.

Enter Scrivener, from Literature and Latte, Ltd...

Brilliant - many thanks for the great review (and for letting us know about it). Don't know about the cancer cure, but we could help organise the research paper about it ;)

Nope, but my demo shots were populated with the opening chapters of my 2008 NaNoWriMo novel, so I can say it was sort of published. That counts, right?

Yep - you could possibly lay claim to being the first person with a published (section of) novel written in Scrivener for Windows! Sort of...

Only just came across this thread, but I had already posted your article on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Scrivener/126134826351 and tweeted about it earlier today.

I enjoyed reading the piece. Thanks!

All the best,
David
