Scriver for Mac/Win 50% Off, Scapple for Mac/win 40% Off

Back in November I picked up a copy of Scrivener and have been using it as my writing tool of choice ever since. It’s a fantastic piece of software with all the tools you need for writing without all of the junk you’ll never use. For example, it doesn’t come with Art, Tables, Graphs and an endless series of styles that just get in the way. Its perfect for letters, books, documents, journals, stories and blog articles. In fact, all my blog articles are now written in Scrivener after having retired out my venerable favorite, OneNote.

I wasn’t quite sure what all the fuss and fury was about until I really sat down and tried it. For those of us who have been browbeaten by Word, it will indeed seem a little strange. But after just a day of working with it and going through the quick project tutorial, I’ve never looked back.

It’s so much easier to work with multiple documents at the same time without having to switch windows and jump through hoops. It has all the editing features you need without all that fluff. In fact, I can take notes on my iPad, Sync those to my desktop, put those notes as “Document Notes” within Scrivener and have them available for whatever article I’m working on. I haven’t lost any note taking functionality.

Anyway, enough about how cool the program is, let’s get to the meat of it. BitsDuJour is running a special with 50% Off the purchase price. That gives you a sale price of $22.50 which is a steal! Plus, that single license allows you to cover multiple machines. You can put a copy on your desktop and laptop without additional fees. They have a very generous licensing program that other vendors should follow.

I have both the Mac and Windows versions and exchange files without a hiccup.

But that’s not all. Literature and Latte have another neat little app called Scapple. It’s a helpful little tool to map out ideas and draw connections between them. Very useful to show how ideas flow together, how scenes fit together, or how character in a story will interact. Interestingly, when I look at it, it makes me think of how a Choose Your Own Adventure game/story would be put together with all the branches a story could take.

Normally, Scapple is $14.99, but there is a 40% Off discount today as well. Again, there is a Mac and Windows version. I now have both. I have a couple of short story ideas and I think Scapple will be fun to plot them out in.

So, both apps are great and both are on sale. If you missed the sale back in November, now is your chance to get a copy of perhaps one of the best writing tools around. Scrivener is very powerful, but also easy to use. If you’re still using Word, I highly recommend giving Scrivener a try. Yes, it will feel a bit different, but within an hour or two, you should come to see just how inconvenient working within the Word framework really is.
