Got 'A' for dissertation


I got the marks for my MA dissertation last week and I’m delighted to write that I got an A :smiley:

You’ll be glad to know that I haven’t started randomly posting this fact in online forums all over the web, there is a reason for my mentioning it here.

To write the dissertation of course I used Scrivener, did you guess?

There was a lot of online research and so Scrivener was top class for that. Sound clips can be watched in one pane of the window and notes written in another. Very excellent for me.

I exported my creation and then used Pages for prettyfication. I think that Pages is superb for prettyfication and so a great match although it won’t import the footnotes as we all know. I kept my many footnotes in a separate file and used an alphanumeric reference system I devised (heading initials and number).

Very hard to think of improvements for Scrivener :slight_smile:

I’m planning on writing an entry for my blog soon-ish about what a fine thing it is.

I’ve started a thesis now, there’s no stopping me.

For research for the thesis I’m thinking of using DEVONthink and DEVONagent. This is because the AI in DEVONthink/DEVONagent is so extremely cool.

But the writing of the thesis will definitely be with Scrivener.

Thanks to the programmer of Scrivener, who I believe is Keith :slight_smile:
