Found this little article while nosing about for information on e-readers: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/blogs/2010/11/08 ... you-smile/

...and I may add that I agree with it 110%: Scrivener is great. Even in beta. Even that one time it ate my words. I'll be buying it as soon as it's released! :D

That article sums it up. :) Scrivener is really, really cool.

Also, there's just something about the corkboard. A magical corkboard that transports you to different sections of your document, from idea to creation, creation back to idea. The corkboard...it's comforting. Very concrete, almost tactile. Yet magical. Transportive. Quantum, almost.

It's difficult to explain. :lol:
I <3 Scrivener for Windows Beta. Thanks to everybody who helped create it!!!

The idea is that instead of trying to plop all your text onto one page – like word diarrhoea on an endless sheet of literary loo roll...


That's exactly why I tend to hit a brick wall somewhere around page 10 on academic papers and the like when using a word processor. ;)
