I spent a couple of years planning my first book, but when it came to actually writing it, I had a three month sabbatical from work in which to accomplish it. Without Scrivener, I never could have written 60,000 words in that amount of time and had the freedom to do the amount of experimenting and re-working that I did. Scrivener’s ability to allow working on a book in small pieces, as well as getting a sense of how those connect together into a whole, and then fluidly move between detail and big picture, is invaluable. After using Scrivener, you realize how inadequate conventional word processors are for actual book writing.
I hope this won’t be my last book, and I definitely plan to use Scrivener for my next one.
