Learn how to get started with Scrivener, a popular tool for writing long-form projects.
- [Laura] Hi, I'm Laura Bergells, and I'm a writer. I use Scrivener almost every day. I love it. Scrivener helps writers with the messy and often chaotic process of writing and editing. It helps you keep your research, timelines, and other important details organized. With Scrivener, you can focus on the details of your work, yet you'll also get a broad overview with a storyboard and outline views. It also gives you multiple formats with which to export and share your work with a wider audience.
In this course, we'll walk through how to use Scrivener to research and plan a new project. I'll show you how to write, review, and edit your work, as well as how to share your work as an email, social media post, or compiled as a book for your publisher. Using Scrivener might seem daunting at first, but once you get a glimpse of how powerful it is, I hope you'll love using it as much as I do. Let's get started.
