Daily Deal: Limited Time Offer Scrivener

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Back for a limited time only — let Scrivener help unleash your inner novelist and manage your writing project. Available in the store for $22.50 for Mac or $20 for PC (select your preferred version in the drop down menu), the Scrivener household license allows you to access your work on multiple devices. Scrivener replaces bits of paper, index cards and sticky notes by allowing you to storyboard projects, edit and work on different sections, either alone or in concert, and post notes and access research. There’s a script formatting function to help you write the next classic movie hit, a name generator, and the ability to freely edit and restore to older versions so you won’t lose anything as you dive deep into the creative process.

For Mac users, the price is great

If PC users save a couple of bucks, great, that is little enough compensation for their using Microsoft. Scrivener is a wonderful program if you are writing a complex project (e.g. novel or non-fiction book), I believe, given its file organization and ability to rearrange parts, and its ability to hold all of your notes and raw material. Scrivener does have a long learning curve, but it also has useful support and forum help.

So “PC” Means “Microsoft” Now?

I have this wonderful tool for being able to write text, and rewrite text, and rearrange sections to my heart’s content: it’s called a text editor.

And I have this other wonderful tool that works with it, to let me keep track of the history of all my changes, revisit any previous version, or even try alternative approaches and then combine bits from them later: it’s called a “version control system”.

Yes, I do writing, and I’m also a programmer. I like the power of being able to experiment with different ideas, but I hate the idea of locking my data away in some proprietary format that belongs to some faceless corporation.
