If you're writing a book, conducting research or maintaining a list of notes and ideas, just use Evernote.

I'm very satisfied with Scrivener! I'm using both a stationary Windows computer and a Macbook for my work, and having Scrivener on both, combined with a cloud service like Google Drive (just copying your project files into Drive) makes it work seamlessly. Although, I have to say that the Windows version of Scrivener lacks some of the functionality from the Mac version. Copy-pasting text from Word can really be a hassle, becuase Windows Scrivener formats the text all wrong when copying it from somewhere else. :roll: I find that having every piece of material related to your project gathered in one place can be very time-saving - at least it is for me. Another thing I really like about Scrivener is being able to write every scene in it's own document, and then use the corkboard view to get a nice overview of the whole project with all the different scenes presented as titled cards.

I see, then a tool like Scrivener gets pretty redudant in your case. I'm probably leaning more towards the "architect" way of writing, so it's nice to have a way of organizing things. :) I always wanted to be able to sit down and write freely like that, but it usually just ends up in a jumble. :lol:

this reminds me of an old scifi story

a little farther in the future
writers are using computers with AI to write stories for them

its a tough life each trying to make enough money to buy the lastest version of the newest AI competitor
so their stories will be good enough to sell and let them buy the lastest version of the next AI program

suddenly a writer from nowhere is the biggest seller
people never heard of him
the other writers try to find out what software he is using so they can get it too

one of them is able to hire an investigator who bugs the writers house
with a microphone and a camera so they can see him and find out what he is doing

turns out he is writing his stories himself on a manual typewriter
no computer with AI
not even a word processor on a pc

moral of the story is you dont need anything to write but your brain
if you use it
and if you do use it you are always going to be smarter (not faster) and better
than some AI program on a computer
