How do you use the Scrivener binder to brainstorm, outline, and organize your project? Laura Bergells demonstrates how she uses Scrivener to brainstorm and create the structure for this very course.
- [Instructor] I'm going to show you the process I used…to create my Crisis Communication course.…I started with a blank project.…A blank project will always have three default folders…in the binder, Draft, Research, and Trash.…I'll click into the Draft section of the binder.…Next, I'll click Add at the top.…This is where I start my brainstorming process.…I hit the green plus sign and start adding my thoughts…about crisis communication in no particular order,…and that's what you do when you're brainstorming.…
Remember, when you're in brainstorm mode,…no idea is a bad idea.…If I have a thought, no matter who nutty,…I'll just jot it into the binder.…I might cut that or rewrite it later,…but to start a brainstorming process,…I just go to the binder and add ideas one after the other.…Notice I'm not adding ideas in any kind of linear fashion.…
With Scrivener, I don't have to be orderly.…I can lead ideas free flow.…It is great for brainstorming.…After I've brainstormed for awhile…and have a healthy list of potential topics,…
