Scrivener + Story Grid

Every Friday post information that I hope will help my fellow writers.

On the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month I post articles about how to integrate Scrivener writing software with the Story Grid Methodology. These posts include tips and techniques on how I personally use the two together to improve my writing.

Scrivener Posts:

  1. Importing working files into Scrivener – describes easy methods for importing files of manuscripts that you might have already begun in word so that they look clean by chapter. This is primarily for Windows, the Mac Scrivener Version 3.0 and higher has a lot more advanced features that I will discuss in future posts.
  2. Tracking your scene 5 commandments – describes a good method for keeping track of your scene 5 commandments of story telling within your Scrivener document. This is primarily for Windows, the Mac Scrivener Version 3.0 and higher has a lot more advanced features that I will discuss in future posts.
  3. Using the Metadata Function on the Mac to track all the items/columns in the Story Grid Spreadsheet. This is primarily for Mac versions of Scrivener 3.0 or higher.
  4. Tracking the 5 Commandments to Story and Progressive Complications in your novel. This is primarily for Mac versions of Scrivener 3.0 or higher. Some of these techniques will work in the Windows version, but the steps will be different.
  5. Creating the Story Grid Spreadsheet using Scrivener’s Export Function. This is primarily for Mac versions of Scrivener 3.0 or higher. Some of these techniques will work in the Windows version, but the steps will be different and the effects won’t be as good.
