How to use Scrivener for NaNoWriMo (and beyond!)

When you need a break from frantically writing toward your 1667 words for the day (or whatever your goal is if you’re not participating in National Novel Writing Month this year), check out my post over at Jami Gold’s blog: How to Use Scrivener for NaNoWriMo.

I highlight my favorite Scrivener features for helping you stay in the flow, and cover how to compile your work when you’re done. Check it out!

And, if you’re in the US and you can, please vote. Ignore the exit polls and early returns. You wouldn’t quit a basketball game at halftime, no matter the score. Your vote matters, for you and for those who don’t have the privilege. Be heard!

Then, back to writing. 🙂 Enjoy your day!
