Unlike Microsoft Word, their sole purpose is to help you achieve your goal of writing your novel.
Before purchasing Scrivener a couple of years ago, I did all of my writing in Microsoft Word.
The further into a manuscript I became, the more difficult I found it to navigate.
As I don’t write chronologically, I’d have to either leave a note in the document or write scenes in separate files and piece them together as I went along.
It was a horrible process.
When I discovered Scrivener, everything changed.
