Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on helping you get to the end of that first draft easily.

When I found Scrivener it changed my writing experience for the better. It was a game changer for me.
I can’t say enough good things about Scrivener. It helped me write my books in record time.  It saved me time and energy, as I didn’t have to scroll up and down like I had to do in MS Word to find what chapter I was working, where I left off, what section was edited and what sections I still need to fix.

Software for writers of all kinds. Outline. Edit. Storyboard. Write.

Here is an example of what MS Word  side bar thumbnail feature looks like.
That is the best you have in Word to keep track of your document or manuscript when writing.

Here is an example of the side bar in Scrivener in a book I am working on to help Authors.
As you can see this gives me access to any chapter I am writing about.
It also puts my research in folders all in the same file so you don’t have to search for all the supporting documents when writing your book.
Don’t worry all of your research pages don’t print with your document or manuscript, unless you want to then you can print that section out separately.
It does so much MORE but this is one example of what I mean when I say GAME changer for a writer.

This software is also great for high school and college students, so I included the education link below as well.
