Learn to use the ultimate writing software - Scrivener. Allowing you to combine the various elements that make up your writing project, from outlines to research to notes, Scrivener helped author Nicole Dionisio write two novels in a single year. Our manual outlines how to use Scrivener to make your writing better, and is useful for writers of all stripes - which includes you.
It is 48 hours before your dissertation is due and, despite the chaos, you are trying to complete the final edits, because it's the only choice you have. There is one problem -- and it isn't the pile of unclean dishes housing sea-green mold and chatty-vermin that has become your sink -- it is your computer and it is time. You should be going faster then this. You put your blood-shot pounding head in your hands and groan, "Why am I going so slow? This computer is brand new... what is the problem?"
It isn't your computer's specs. It is your writing process. It is because you have not yet started using Scrivener.
