You can actually get this guide online for free, but I chose to also come here and buy it to show support for this author -- as well as thank the author for creating it. I've been using Scrivener for years now and have barely scratched the surface of what it can do, and this little guide showed me creative ways to use the features that I didn't even know were possible, and which helped me a lot!Even though you can get it for free ... come on, people, chip in the $1.99 and think of it as a tip for job well done. That's less than a glass of soda at a restaurant.
I'm not quite a Scrivener beginner, but I am no expert either. I love Scrivener, but the learning curve has been steep. This short book lays out all of the basics a fiction writer will need and then some. I've been studying Scrivener and and have read all the how to and help manuals and I was surprised that this gem of a book showed me even more of the cool functions and tools that I'd yet to discover on my own. The writer has a great voice and sense of humor and I like the author's unique ways of utilizing some of the tools such as key words, labels and status. I especially loved learning how to edit my draft inside the same scrivener file.I strongly recommend this book for the beginner or experiences Scrivener user.
this book is okay as a very basic introduction to scrivener. But everything that is in here can easily be gotten from the free scrivener documentation. Anyone who is really interested in learning and using scrivener should spend just a few more dollars and purchase the book "scrivener for dummies" by Gwen Hernandez. That book is much more comprehensive and much more well put together and written. For anyone who really wants to use the scrivener software that book is well worth its cost of $12 and change. I would also recommend Gwen Hernandes website and possibly her online scrivener classes.
This guide to Scrivener gives a good introduction to a complex program, but is far from complete. Read it if you want to decide whether Scrivener is something for you (probably yes), and/or as an addition to the manual Scrivener itself comes with: you get a picture of what Scrivener is capable of and the guide is written more clearly than those tutorials.
I have used scrivener for four novels. And still I learned so much from this guide!Thank you for the tips and better techniques. I can't wait to write even more efficiently!
This is one of those books that I'll read several times as I get my Scrivener mojo down! I'm sold on the program, and Nicole Dionisio does a solid job of walking the newbie through the process and program. She is gentle, and holds your hand through a lot of what could be construed as complicated, but she demystifies things a bit, and gives you suggestions and ideas on how to get to intermediate levels of mastery and beyond.
I don't think any guide to a massive program like Scrivener is going to make you an expert, but it is a good guide that got me going into using the program. And the guide was priced well.
This book is very good if you are just starting with Scrivener. Scrivener has so many options and this book only hits the highlights, but for a beginner, it's great because it doesn't overwhelm the uses. After you learn the basics, you many need a Scrivener course or a more in-depth book to learn all of the components of this awesome software.
