Scrivener | Full Course on How to Write a Book in Scrivener

Scrivener is not nearly as hard to learn as you have been lead to believe. The first section of this course will take you on a complete walkthrough of how Scrivener works with plenty of real examples, a thorough explanation of the regions of the user interface and arrows pointing directly at the buttons mentioned in the transcript making it easy to find them.

Once you know the basics you can go back, dig in to the features that suit your writing style best and start creating your awesome content. If you forget how to use a feature you can pop back and watch its clearly labeled lecture again. Once your project is underway you can go on to investigate some really cool features that you don’t necessarily need — but are fun to use — like customizing your work spaces, importing from mind map software or backing up and storing your projects to Dropbox in the cloud.

 

  • Over 45 lectures and 5 hours of content!
  • How to open a project and customize your Scrivener workspaces.
  • Toggle between Scrivener’s normal Text Editing Mode, Cork Board Mode and Outlining Mode and how to use each of them as well as how to use Scrivener’s distraction free Full Screen Mode.

  • Manage your files and folders, whether you are starting from scratch in Scrivener or want to import your content from another writing application pre-sorted into chapters or sections.

  • How to download some tools so that you can preview your content before you send it out.

Scrivener | Back up to Dropbox and Jazz up Your Interface

This course is FREE over on Udemy because it is really important that you back up your work to the cloud!!

Never lose your hard earned work again. Dropbox is a cloud storage system that allows you to access data over the internet instead of using your computer’s hard drive. This means that you can back up your Scrivener projects inside your Dropbox account and access them from any of your other devices that have Scrivener installed even if your computer is lost or crashes.

I’ll show you how to open a Dropbox account and get your Scrivener software to redirect your backup folders to it. Then I’ll show you how to store your actual Scrivener projects on Dropbox so that you can switch between any of your computers that have scrivener installed whenever you want to work on your projects.

If you enjoy any of my courses and you think they will be helpful for your friends, I would love you to tell them about it.
