This lovely software make me write more

Which is what it’s all about isn’t it? (At least short of helping me write better.)

I write a lot about different topics- scrivener allows me to manage it and to do some at a time which works for me. These are huge achievements that I didn’t have a solution for before.

Currently I used the heirarchy on the left side. I expect that the deeper I get into editing that I will use more features such as keywords, note cards, etc. For now, the expandable heirarchy and fast search allow me to be organized with very little time spent.

Writing:
Put the note where I think it should go. (15 seconds)
Write (hours)

Editing:
Lookup by search (10 seconds) or
by navigation (a little longer)
Edit (hours)

Organizing (done rarely):
Move stuff around or modify trees (an hour or less).

That’s it. Those are things I do. 99% of my time is spent writing and even with 160,000 words it still feels organized. Some of this is do to search but I have done the one-huge-file approach and this is better. With the one-huge-file it gets to feel like a beast that you don’t want to get near.

Many thanks for your feedback - it’s great to hear how Scrivener works for you, and that it helps you write more.
All the best,
Keith
