I think I’m in love! In the past month, I have completely changed my blogging workflow. That’s because I have discovered the joys of using Scrivener. Originally a Mac tool, Scrivener is software for writers. It’s now available for Windows, and that’s the version I’m using. I’d heard about it before but figured it was only for novel writers. Boy, was I wrong! Although I wasn’t sure how it would work for a professional blogger, I found an article my Thaddeus Hunt (one of my new go-to sources for Scrivener information) outlining how he was using Scrivener for blogging. I used his example to set up a draft project to work with and have found it the most useful new tool I’ve tried in a while.
With Scrivener, the idea is that you create a project file for a particular writing project. This contains all the information you need for that project. For novelists, that means creating chapters and sections and keeping track of characters and locations, but how would that work for blogging?
