I recently downloaded Scrivener on my Macbook to start organizing my writing better. I watched the tutorials but I am lost. Does anyone know of any helpful youtube videos or other resources to figure this out? (I am technologically challenged to say the least!) OR do you recommend a different app/ website/ program for your writing?

I used this video to try to understand the software: Getting Started in Scrivener (On-Screen Demo!) - YouTube

I agree that the tutorials felt very overwhelming, I was super confused.

I usually use Google Docs for writing, but I got Scrivener after completing Camp NaNoWriMo (there was a winner’s discount code that expired so I figured I’d get it). I think those two programs work best, though Scrivener definitely feels more professional and organized.

EDIT: I think the link I gave you starts in the middle of the video, no idea why that is! [name_m]Just[/name_m] thought I’d give you a heads up, since I don’t know how to change that.


Thank you so much! 'll go check out the video right now!

Is Scrivener is a software program for writers? I thought that it was a role-playing game!

Yes. It is for writing.

Thanks drfox :grinning:
