What I've been looking for

So glad I discovered Scrivener.

When I converted to Mac (in a religious sense) in 2002 I had to sacrifice WordPerfect and use MS Word. I missed WP terribly, especially the Master Documents, where I could open, say, just Chapter 3 and Chapter 20 and move things back and forth. I’ve been dealing with 800K documents, using Find at every turn. With Scrivener I can open just the parts I’m working on.

As a fantasy writer, I’ve got a meta-world with a cast of thousands, forms of address, gods, several countries, a 2,000+ year history, several maps… Scrivener has a place where I can keep all this at my fingertips without opening half a dozen files every time I sit down to write.

I’m still learning to use all the bells and whistles. It’s an absolutely phenomenal program. I’m recommending it to all my writer friends. :smiley:

Welcome to the wonderful world of Scrivener! I’ve been using it for a year now and have never looked back. I’m as satisfied with it, even more so, than the days I first discovered it.

So, welcome, and happy fantasies (the process you describe sounds very fun)!


Scrivener’s just like the Mac: the more you use it, the better it gets. There’s always something new (and useful) to learn and enjoy.

Thank you. :slight_smile: And welcome aboard.

Thanks for the encouragement. I’m really having fun playing and figuring out all the bells and whistles.
