Pros: I love that it allows me to not only section out chapters, but also scenes within the chapter. It also gives me the option to keep characters, locations, and all sorts of notes in one document.

Cons: Compiling correctly can be a giant pain. It took a lot of time to get the basics down. I have yet to master all the options that the software offers because of the complexity. It also offers various formatting options, but again, learning all of these options takes a lot of time and effort.

Overall: While there is a huge learning curve with this software, I love that it keeps everything I need in one document for my novels. Gone are the days of multiple documents and worrying about keeping things organized. This software keeps everything in one document which is amazing. Once I have more time to actually sit down and watch the various tutorials, I hope to be able to utilize even more of the software's features. I think if there were better tutorials to help people get started, it would help a lot. I originally used the tutorial and almost gave up on the software until I found some better tutorials online and through Youtube.

Pros: I like the ability to outline my book. Scrivener provides character outline as well as book/novel outline. This is helpful, particularly for someone like me who does not typically do an outline. This helps create and guides you.

Cons: It was not the most user friendly product when creating an Ebook in my opinion. It has been easier to just use word and convert from there. The conversion process was confusing and I opted not to use Scrivener for anything other than writing and having a place to store my stories.

Great for Storyboarding Anything!

Pros: I love the cork board feature where to help maintain a nice organized thought process during the planning stage.

Cons: There was a bit of a learning curve - I'd recommend experimenting a bit with unimportant test info before relying on it - be sure your know what each area is for and how the connect so that when you are ready to use it for a real project you don't kick yourself our of your groove by trying to figure something out.

Overall: Interestingly - though designed for writers, this worked really well as a way to storeyboard courses for adult learners prior to putting together the courses in a course authoring tool

Pros: The various places it has for getting thoughts out of my head and onto "paper" are great.

Cons: Not the most user friendly. Has a fairly steep learning curve. Wood be nice for a "cloud" where i can share my projects between devices.

Pros: This software does it all. Truly is the best program to plan, write, and format your book.

Cons: My only issue with Scrivener is that their support for the Windows version is extremely subpar. They still haven't updated the Windows version to match the Mac's even though Mac's has been out for over a year.
