2nd October – 28 Days and Counting…

Don’t forget to vote for my book on Kindle Scout!


23. What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?

That’s easy to answer. Hands down, it was when I bought the software Scrivener.


Scrivener – also comes in Mac form.


Scrivener is a word processing tool, but it’s SO handy for putting manuscripts together. You can have parts, chapters, scenes within chapters; you can use full-screen mode to stop distractions; you can edit the formatting of your writing… There are loads of features!

Not only that, but you can export your document (they call it ‘compiling’) in a variety of formats, including ePub and Kindle’s .mobi file (via a plug-in). You can also export to .pdf if you want to give a digital draft to someone without them being able to edit it.

The best part? It was pretty cheap. When I bought it, I spent less than £30. It’s already paid for itself—and more.

  1. If you win National Novel Writing Month or Camp NaNoWriMo, you can get Scrivener at a reduced price. I don’t know all the bells and whistles yet, but it is a really good program for a writer with a lot of flexibility in formatting.


  2. It’s really handy for a lot of different reasons. I think one of the biggest benefits of the program is the flexibility it offers. It can cater to a lot of different ways of writing and using it. I love Scrivener!
