Hello,

I don't have Caroline's template anymore, but at some point I must have loaded and then discarded it, because I do have a backup of a project created from the template, which I've attached. (Yes, I keep project backups forever. :mrgreen: )

Inside the project, Caroline writes, "Please feel free to share it, but if you do please link back to my website (http://www.carolinenorrington.com). I will notify of any updates via the blog on that website."

Based on her permission, I am sharing it here, but be aware that her website no longer works, so you're on your own for support. This backup is from 2014, and when you open it, Scrivener will likely want to upgrade the project.

While I didn't find the template useful for my writing process, Caroline obviously put a *ton* of effort into it, so hopefully it helps someone.

Best,
JIm

Ditto to what Jim has said. Thank you, Caroline.

I've downloaded it but I can't figure out how to import this. Any clues from those more experienced? I'm a newb to Scrivener, but a former professional writer/screenwriter.

I've downloaded it but I can't figure out how to import this.

Note where you have unzipped the template to.

Open Scrivener and select 'New Project'.

When it opens your 'Project Templates' box, select 'Options' (bottom left) and 'Import Templates'.

Navigate to wherever you unzipped the template to and load it from that location.

It should now appear as a new template on offer.

My info is based on the latest beta for Windows but the basics should be similar.

Hope it helps.
