Scrivener for Writers

As writers, we’ve all spent time hunched over a keyboard trying to get our thoughts down and into some word processor. Word processors such as Word and Pages work ok when it comes to writing but their focus is much more on processing your words (layout, font, headers, footers, etc) than on the creative process. Enter Scrivener.
Scrivener is the premier application for the creation of novels, novellas, and like works. It allows you to focus on getting your story written by helping you integrate your research, planning, writing, etc. all into one tool. This course will teach you, the writer, how to best use Scrivener for everything from planning your scenes to generating output for your publisher. Lectures will be presented using recorded videos so you can hear and see as your instructor explains and demonstrates everything you need to become effective with Scrivener. Each lecture will be announced through the email list and will be accompanied by a brief timeline. Students will then be able to use the same email list to ask questions, discuss lectures, etc. Lectures will cover both the Mac and Windows versions of Scrivener and a quick overview of Scrivener for the iPad will also be provided.
Instructor Bio: 

ABOUT PAT HAGGERTY: After a failed attempt at college and four years in the USMC learning to be a better apex predator, Patrick Haggerty attended Georgia State University where he studied to be an Actuary. Not a very romantic or literary major, but a good paying one. He started consulting on software development and design in 1995 and has spent most of the time since developing and delivering technical training courses for Learning Tree International. In 2004, while stuck reading a mediocre book in yet another hotel, Patrick decided to try his hand at writing fiction. He may not be published yet, but these days you are much more likely to find him spending his evenings writing romance than code. Patrick is an active member of Romance

Tread Lightly

Tread lightly...But know that while we are all working together here, the conversation can turn quickly to death, destruction and mayhem. And we are fine with that. We'll even abet you as you work to do the same, to become the best spinner of romantic mysteries and thrillers that you can be. So come on in, the water's blood.
