Writer’s Resource: Scrivener

Scrivener

Scrivener is a writing program offered by Literature and Latte. They are another sponsor of NaNo and offer a free 30 day trial. Scrivener offers tool such as a corkboard, files for easy formatting, a place to store research, and easy import/export from other software.

As I mentioned in a previous post, there is a free alternative, with less functionality offered through SpaceJock Software. Also available is Jami Gold’s Scrivener template beat sheet.

Writer’s Resource: Spacejock Software

Spacejock Software

Spacejock offers free software that perform various tasks.  Relevant to this blog’s focus are:

yWriter5- a writing programs similar to Scrivener with a few less bells and whistles; and

Sonar3- a tracking system for who you have sent what stories and what was the response.  Similar to Duotrope, except your information is not available to others.  Which means you can’t learn from other people’s experiences, either.

Simon Haynes, the creator, proudly claims his software is virus free and walks you through how to ensure it is.

May the muse be with you,
