I recently gave in and downloaded the Scrivener demo (a generous demo of thirty days – that’s thirty days of actual use, not thirty days from when you first turn it on). It’s a great program you should definitely try and I plan to rework my WIP using it.

So behold a great list below of tools to focus for both Mac and Windows writers! Read more…

Update: how’s my reading going?

March 9th, 2010 No comments
