Creating Better Stories in Thrillers and Military Fiction
Merging Scrivener and The Story Grid
I was using Scrivener long before I learned about the Story Grid, but after I become a Certified Story Grid Editor, I started figuring out better ways to use the power of Scrivener with the tools of the Story Grid to make a really great writing/ editing experience. In these posts, I share all my tips and techniques for integrating the Story Grid methodology into Scrivener.
Scrivener + Story Grid New and Improved – Part 1: The Set Up – Part one of a new 3 part series about how I set up Scrivener before I begin writing or editing manuscripts. Full of great tips and techniques on how to seamlessly use Scrivener and Story Grid together to create an awesome writing experience.
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.
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.
I started out learning Scrivener on my own, and I loved the tools I found. I eventually paid for an online course called Learn Scrivener Fast. It was very thorough and professionally done, and I learned even more tips and techniques. I really loved the course, and I became an affiliate, this is my affiliate link to Learn Scrivener Fast. I do receive a percentage of anything spent through that link.
