5 “Best” Features of Scrivener for Writers

Scrivener has so many different features that some might not even know all of these features. Or perhaps they’re just not interested in knowing these features, at least not until they have need of these features.

Some, like me, prefer to just know the basic features of Scrivener including the ones that will be most often used. For instance, if you’re still in the process of writing your story, there is no need to know how to publish this story in Scrivener yet. There will be time for that later on when you’ve finally finished your story and you’re ready to compile it all together.

With all of the many features of Scrivener, here are the top 5 features that I consider to be the best.

In Praise of Scrivener

When it comes to writing fiction, I would be lost without Scrivener. I’ve been using the program for years now, and working on an extended project in any other program seems like it would be a lot of hard work.

Scrivener is such a huge piece of software that there are a thousand different ways to use it. Even now, I still come across new-to-me features! The great thing about it is that it’s easy to find the things that work for you, and to customise them to make your writing process easier.

I’ve mentioned Scrivener a lot in the past, and I wanted to share a more in-detail look at some of the ways it works for me.

Scrivener Is My New Boyfriend

Scrivener is an application designed for pretty much any kind of writer. This program is incredible, and it’s been around for a while. I’m late to the game. I can’t believe I didn’t try it before — especially when there’s a 30-day free trial available.

When I’m working on a novel I’m always juggling a million documents: the current draft, my outline, a place to throw the scraps I’m cutting, a list of things I already know I need to fix, a list of terms of the world that I’ve created, a document with all my characters’ backgrounds, a map of the world the story takes place in, maybe an old draft for reference, a document for miscellaneous brainstorming, research notes…the list goes on.
