All great artists need tools to help create something that they are inspired by, and writers are no exception. One of the tools that I started using for 2013 National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo was Scrivener. This is more then just a word processing tool. You can do so much more with it. Actually this article and all the ones that I write for Moonlight Reads as well as my stories are written using it.
Some of the things that I love about it is that you only have to pay for it once, any improvements that happen are then automatically updated. When I was using it for NaNoWriMo it helped in telling me how many words I had written. It also has a split screen feature that comes in handy when you are writing, especially when writing a novel. I tend to find it very helpful to have a character sheet up while I am writing my story. That way I can make sure that I don’t change a character’s eye or hair color mid stories. Then there is the templates that can help you organize yourself. I created my own character sheet that I add to all my projects. In the cork board feature it helps when I want to move something or just take a quick glance at a chapter, and it helps with outlining your story out too.
This is one of my favorite tools to use. I couldn’t help but share it with all of you. Now don’t think that I am saying you can’t use something else with your writing, because I’m not. It is just what works for me. Below I have put links to buy Scrivener and to learn more about it. I hope that it helps you with your writing and may your writing be inspired.
