NON-MEMBER PRICE: $65.00
Writing a novel is hard work, but it’s even harder if you don’t have the right organizational tools. An average novel is around 80,000 words, which makes writing cumbersome if you need to make major structural changes in a basic word processor like MS Word. Unlock your creative potential without the clunky functionality of a tool that wasn’t designed with novelists in mind. In this workshop, we’ll look at Scrivener and how it can be used to keep you organized, keep your research notes and outline all in one single document, auto-save backups of your work so you never have to lose your writing again, set and track writing goals, engage distraction-free mode, create ebooks at the touch of a button, and more. Learn from a die-hard Scrivener enthusiast as we unlock the creative power of the software tool that’s actually designed for writers. Technically challenged or afraid of software? Not to worry, we’ll start with the basics and work our way up from there.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
