I’m over at Writer Unboxed today discussing section types and section layouts, two key concepts in Scrivener 3’s new approach to compile. I hope you’ll check it out!
My new course, Scrivener 3 Fundamentals for Mac is now live at ScrivenerClasses.com. For $39, this course provides the essential functions and features of Scrivener 3 that you need to get started writing. Valuable for plotters, pantsers/discovery writers, fiction and nonfiction, long or short stories, blogging, or whatever else you’re writing.
By the end of Scrivener 3 Fundamentals, you’ll be able to:
- create and setup a project that works for your writing style or type of project.
- rename and rearrange chapters, scenes, sections of your manuscript.
- work with the Corkboard to plot or preview your manuscript’s structure.
- find anything in your project.
- backup your work and find/use a project backup.
- compile to a Word document.
- find help when you need it.
- 48 quick, step-by-step lessons
- 15 instructional videos
- Q&A with the instructor (either on the site or via private Facebook group)
- 10 cheat/review sheets
- progress chart to keep you on track
I’m moving this week, but I’ll be checking in at least once a day to answer student questions. Happy writing!
Scrivener 3 for Mac is here! To celebrate, I’ve created a free mini-course to help you transition from Scrivener 2 that covers what’s moved (with a downloadable table of menu commands), what’s changed, and what’s new.
In addition, I’ll be rolling out new Scrivener 3 for Mac courses over the next few weeks. I’m going to be taking a slightly different approach this time around, while offering the same style of teaching that you’ve told me you love. I hope you’ll check them out. To make sure you get notified when new classes are live, you can join my newsletter, follow this blog, or check ScrivenerClasses.com from time to time.
Windows users: There’s still good news. The Scrivener 3 for Windows public beta released today as well, and the full software is due next year. When the time comes, I’ll have classes for you too. 😉
Summer’s over—I hope yours was great!—and my boys are both back at school, my dog is moping around because her buddies are gone, and I finally finished the first (and second) draft of book 4 in my Men of Steele series.
I’m so excited to get Kurt and Caitlyn’s story out there! (Probably January by the time it gets through rounds of editorial, cover art, etc.) I love this couple as much as my readers, but for some reason their story has been the most difficult to write, with several false starts over the last couple of years.
If you’re on my romance newsletter list, you’ll hear from me a few times between now and January with some sneak peeks and maybe a special request.
Book 4 has pretty much been my sole focus for the last two months, but for my Scrivener folks, I’m also working on some new courses—the transition course will be free—and maybe a book. If you use Scrivener, you probably know that version 3 is coming (for Mac this year, and Windows in 2018). It has some really cool updates and features that I can’t talk about yet, but if you’re curious, definitely check out Literature & Latte’s posts on the topic at http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/.
If you want to find out when I have new offerings, be sure to sign up for my Scrivener newsletter, or check back here from time to time (you can also subscribe to this blog in the right-hand sidebar at the bottom).
The only other new thing with me is that I got a haircut and it came out much too short (chin length instead of shoulder length, ouch). But it feels good and dries quickly, so there’s that.
Have a wonderful autumn (or spring, if you’re down south)!
