I’ve been hanging out here for almost a year and I’ve been using Scrivener for about eight months. I thought it was about time I registered and said hello. It wasn’t just my need for this amazing software that convinced me to go with Scrivener but also the helpful and knowledgable community. But honestly there was no choice; Scrivener is unrivaled in its greatness.
I’ve been writing since I was young. It’s what I’ve spent my life wanting to do for a living. Life however required a more practical path in order to sustain and manage the awesomeness that is having a family. I finished my college about a year and a half ago and came out with have two computer science degrees. One in Security & Forensics and another in Networking. I work full time in healthcare IT. I make decent pay, I have job security and I like and am good at what I do. I recently started looking into going back to school at the persuation of my management. But I had to decline. The idea of going to school got me thinking about what I really wanted out of life. So I am currently enrolled in SNHU for a BA in Creative Writing with a specialization in Fiction. I have always had a desire to understand more about the craft both historically and stylistically. I’m enjoying the hell out of myself now. I am currently working on three long term projects and working on a late draft of a short story that I fully intend to submit for possible publication.
Anyway… I just wanted to say hello and to thank everyone - no matter if you help make Scriverner or help users here in the forums - it’s a brilliant peice of work. This community is great. My productivity has trippled in eight months and even with a tight, limited writing schedule I have gotten more done in the short time I’ve had it than I have in years.
