No app deserves it more. Congrats, Keith, and thanks for making it happen.

Hey Scrivner

Bravo! You really deserve the award. I was just reading them this morning and there you were. Made me and I am sure all your users very happy. Hope such an award brings you more business and other good things. On top of an outstanding software program, you also provide exceptional and friendly support here at your web site.

We are all very proud of you and thanks for making such a great tool for writers.

Congratulations, Keith, on a very well deserved Eddy. My New Year's wish is going to be for more space in my life to make fuller use of Scrivener ... I'd love to reach the point where I more or less live in it!

I think we should definitely put this on the Wish List -- that we should be able to live inside of Scrivener. I am ready for the transfer. Beam me in!


P.S. Hearty thanks and congratulations, Keith. You must be pretty stoked. I mean, just reading these apps listed in the same breath brings cheer: "best software? oh, you know, Leopard, Scrivener, stuff like that."

Let me add my vote to the chorus of approval. Well done Keith, I'm sure that the accolades will keep rolling in. Scrivener deserves nothing less.

Can't write right. Don't care neither. Er...either.

Ketih, Congratulations. It's the least you deserve for creating the writing software I've been looking for years. I hope that more awards await for you in the future.

This is a sickening display of sycophancy, so before I disappear into what passes for a metropolis in our neck of the woods (not much wood, either) to collect the turkey, I would like to bring Keith down to earth a little by pointing out that Scrivener is not perfect. It's not a heap of crap, either.

In fact it's the best writer's tool I've discovered since I gave up using HB pencils. But I won't tell him that, you understand.

Merry Christmas!
