About Simply Scrivener

Let’s face it, writers who use Scrivener can’t help but share the love for this amazing software. And because we are so mesmerized by the sheer power of how it keeps all our writing projects organized, we want to persuade other writers—whether you write novels or non-fiction—to say “So long” to Word and “Hello” to Scrivener. So what do we do? We write tutorials. Lots of tutorials. And books. And offer classes.

Without a doubt, Gwen Hernandez holds the heavyweight title of Scrivener Champion. I’ve consumed Gwen’s Tech Tuesday posts like they were my bread and water, I’ve taken her month long class, and I bought her Scrivener For Dummies book. Gwen has been instrumental to my Scrivener education.

Why dedicate an entire blog to Scrivener? When I discover something new, via fiddling with the program or through another blog, I want to show readers how Scrivener can simplify the writing process: how to keep the multitude of text and research files organized in an easy to find location, how to customize Scrivener to make it work for your own writing style whether you’re a plotter or panster; how to format and compile your documents into RTF, PDF, DOC, EPUB or MOBI files; and everything else that a huge writing project entails.

In a nutshell, the reason for this site is pretty simple. I enjoy writing the tutorials. I figured that instead of having them interspersed in my personal writing blog that this blog would serve as the go-to site where the information is easy to find.

I hope the tutorials are helpful and I look foreward to answering your questions, reading your feedback, as well as learning from you!

Is there anybody out there?  Just a quick question for anyone who might know:   is it possible to do a project search by comments and/or footnotes only (eg, those options don't seem to be available in the drop-down menu in the search field)...Thanks!

Wow. I'm impressed that you looked it up so quickly! Still working on it. Have to add some widgets and fiddle with Google Analytics and Feedburner. Should be done by tonight.
