Ever since my book came out, whenever I’m asked by other writers what advice I’d give them when embarking on book projects, I tell them to explore Scrivener. The difference between having hundreds (or thousands) of files, all with different scraps of information, to having one "master" file where I could keep all of my research and writing is enormous. It’s an incredible program that does exactly what software is supposed to do: simplify my life so I can focus on what’s important.
