I have downloaded the Scrivener Beta for Windows. I won’t have it for long as the trial ends sometime in September (get yours here). But I have long lusted after the writing software and when I found out my heroes (Ilona Andrews) use it, I actively sought it out. After only one day of messing with it and popping in and out of the tutorial, I think I’ve got it.
Now I’m not one for planning (believe me, there have been lots of frustrated nights bashing my face off the keyboard to discover that nugget of information) but I do have tons of bookmarked web pages of important info that I call ‘research’ (snort!) that I never get around to. Another bad habit is making notes on scraps of paper or note books that I can never find, at least not until I don’t need them anymore.
But I actually think Scrivener could be the end of all that, possibly, maybe. If it can organise this chaotic, daydreamer and save those golden ideas that disappear like thieves in the night, then it might be a lifeline for pantsers everywhere.
