worth the price of admission  

I had the sudden suspicion that Scrivener might let me put both my synopsis and the chapter I was working on up in a split screen, and lo, within a few seconds I’d figured out how to do so. That feature alone is worth the price of admission. I’ve also got an obviously-increasingly-useful sidebar going on with research materials filling up, and find a sort of unholy glee in the idea that it’s all just right there to flip through instead of digging through browser bookmarks or random text files.

Yeah. I’m a convert, and I still don’t know how to use 95% of the features. Imagine how dangerous I’ll be if I ever learn that stuff!

Also, this little book I’ve started may or may not amuse anyone else but I’m not yet 1K in and it’s amusing the hell out of me, which is a nice feeling.

The fascinating thing about Scrivener is that it seems nobody uses it the same way. Which could be someone's doctoral thesis, on the organization and process of the narrative storytelling brain....

What's also cool is apparently it's robust enough for everybody to use it differently!

Watch out, she's doing science!

And that amusement will undoubtedly shine through to your readers. Hooray! :)

We'll see. All I need is two or three weeks of full time work to get it done...

A) I tried three times to learn Scrivener and finally gave up. I just don't have the patience, I guess.

B) If you write it, I'll read it. That is all.

Well, I've been edging toward it for like two years now, with the occasional toe dipped in repeatedly, followed by shrieks of terror and running away. :)

I never got past that last stage :-)
