    "Great project management tool for writers"

    February 9, 2010  |   By toomath


    If you want a pure organizational tool for your writing projects this is for you. scrivener takes away a lot of the annoying shuffling and tracking activities of a large writing project and lets you focus just on the joy of writing itself.


    That I didn't know about it sooner. I would be a happier person...Also, would like a way to view all projects in the Scrivener interface rather than finding projects on the hard drive and opening them. But that's a minor quibble.


    Simple but powerful interface. Great for novelists, nonfiction writers, and screenwriters (includes a screenwriting tool that can be exported to FinalDraft).
