Writing Program for Mac

[Reading Time: 3 – 5 minutes]

I cannot tell you how excited I am to find a writing program for Mac! Okay, I did not find it; it found me. No, I did not get this program for free, unless you count the free trial everyone gets. The program happened to backlink to one of my NaNoWriMo posts and, of course, I followed to see where it would lead. I am glad I did!

There are tons of free programs available for PC, but it can [sometimes] be a daunting task to find a really great program for Mac. Well, I do not know if it is really great, but after watching the overview of the program I have very high hopes.

The Scrivener offers templates for novels, short stories, screen plays, research papers, AND a special template just for NaNoWriMo! This was developed to give us NaNo writiers the chance to experience this program and simplify it at the same time for our specific purpose. But you can use Scrivener for just about any type of writing!
Did someone say free trial?
I just now downloaded this program so I will not say it is worth the $39.95 price tag, but you can try it out yourself for free from now until December 7th! That is right! You get more than 30 days to work with Scrivener and see if it is for you.
It gets better. If you do want to own this program, then you will get a 20% discount on the $39.95 price just for being a NaNoWriMo participant.
It gets even better. If you win NaNoWriMo you can get a 50% discount on this program! Wow! I am all for that!

Scrivener is a word processor and project management tool created specifically for writers of long texts such as novels and research papers. It won’t try to tell you how to write – it just makes all the tools you have scattered around your desk available in one application.

Be sure to check out the online overview

This was a wonderful way to see the main features of the Scrivener before downloading and muddling through it.


 Oh, if you are participating in NaNoWriMo and would like to be my writing buddy, that would be *awesome*! Just friend me.
