Scrivener - Three tips and a Warning

Recently I wrote the YA version of one of Jared Diamond’s books. It was the first long project I’d begun in Scrivener. I’d imported a couple of WIPs into Scrivener, but starting a manuscript from the ground up in the program gave me new insights into its usefulness.

I also made a Scrivener mistake I’ll never make again.

Today I’m passing on three tips–which are really appreciations of Scrivener features I found especially handy–and a warning against that dumb mistake.

Automatic Remote Backups in Scrivener

Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, short articles or full-length books, casual or academic, Scrivener is
easily the best tool on the market. It’s simple to get started with, smartly-designed, and extremely robust. I use it for everything: outlining and drafting, short stories and novels, even articles for this website.

Since I’ve recently made a career transition whereby I’m now making my living with my writing, it’s become important to ensure the data security of that writing. And there’s a simple trick with Scrivener that makes this process painless, invisible, and foolproof.

Introduction to Scrivener for Novelists

When the first version of Scrivener for Windows came out in 2011, I put off following up on it because I was
busy, and because it was the first version, but last fall I decided to take the plunge.  Even though I’ve only scratched the surface, I’m glad I did.  I have always been a very linear writer, and I think that’s largely because of the structure imposed by a novel-length file in any word processing program.  Scrivener breaks a project into manageable pieces, and lets you work on them in any order without losing control of the whole.  The option of jumping easily from one section (or scene) to another is one of the features I am fast coming to love in Scrivener.

How To Format A Perfect Novel: Part 1 (File Organization)

Okay, that headline is a mouthful. But then again, this post is a mindful. See what I did there? Mindful? Like
it will fill your mind?

Oh, you.

Formatting your novel is incredibly important. Too many indie authors and publishers put out books that look just like everyone else’s.
