SCRIVENER - LOTS TO LEARN
So, I just bought Scrivener. It wasn't really an impulse purchase since I've been hearing about it for quite some time now, but I did decide rather quickly to buy it last night.
Once it downloaded and I opened up those tutorials, my body flooded with regret.
|No! Why did I buy this?|
I'm not a person who learns by reading long, detailed piles of information like that.
I instantly hated Scrivener.
I learn better by seeing and doing. Thank goodness for Youtube and people like Vivien Reis for her great tutorials. Like these... How to Outline Your Novel in Scrivener and this one How to Get Started Writing Writing with Scrivener
It doesn't seem as scary to me now. I'll probably never read through that long tutorial but may watch some more videos. I'm sure I'll learn the most by messing around with it.
I know there are a lot of people who swear by Scrivener. I'm going to be brave, roll up my sleeves, and get in there. Maybe one day I'll be one of those people who shout about its greatness from the rooftops. I guess we'll see, won't we?
Now to go play around and create a story...
