I love Scrivener! I just don’t use it anywhere near as often as I should D: gotta change that.
I just can’t get over how it makes my natural flow of thought work so well! as long as I’ve organized my pages in a way that makes sense when I come back to it, I remember where things are and when one thought begets another, I put it in its proper place.
because especially when worldbuilding for sci-fi or fantasy, it’s easy for designing a train to turn into a case study of the vicious beasts that occasionally hold up the train to the culture of the fearsome thieves who tame those beasts to a plot point where one of those thieves turns on his brothers to how that develops the main character…
and in Scrivener I can just hop from one document to another, attach pictures where visual inspiration is necessary, and piece it all together later with the fantastic organization structure.
EEEEE okay. I could nerd out about this all day.
after a very satisfactory 30 day trial, Scrivener has been dutifully purchased. best damn software for my process.

Writers write. But writers more often than not are not writing. They are waiting to write, preparing to write, rehearsing, practicing, taking notes, outlining, reading. On top of the anxiety of writing (or not writing) is this other anxiety—that all the activities of the prelude, in reality, are not prelude at all, but a symphony of fiddling around, a divertimento of tuning up.
