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 […]

RightNote Standard and Professional on sale for 50% Off

As I build up a new writing workflow, I need a new tool to replace Microsoft OneNote since it’s still the 2007 version and isn’t getting updated or supported. I’m not going to install the new version of OneNote for a variety of reasons including I don’t like the way it looks and I have privacy concerns in regards to how Microsoft is treating it’s latest apps. Microsoft is getting far too entrenched in this idea that simply because I use one of their apps, whatever I do with it or create with it is somehow theirs. I prefer to keep my data local and I prefer to make sure it stays mine. With that, I have brought in RightNote as my new multi-purpose, multi-tabbed writing environment. Like OneNote, you can create multiple "pages" to organize ideas and separate out topics. From there, each page can have multiple notes in a tree structure that can easily be moved around and organized. This will be useful when I’m putting together a technical document and I need to make changes to the workflow order. Since RightNote is a fully RichText environment, it also allows complete freedom in formatting and the type of content such as images, tables, charts, styles and spacing. In many respects, RightNote combines the power of OneNote with the editing features of Microsoft Word. For example, the Pages and tree structure on the page are like OneNote, while the formatting, tables, margins, spell-checking, line spacing, indents, styles and images […]

Scrivener for Windows and Mac Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale – $25

As a final offer before the all the festive holiday sales come to an end, if you’re a writer, or an aspiring one, you might want to check out Scrivener which is on sale for $25. That’s around a 50% savings off the regular price. To be honest, I’m not as familiar with Scrivener as I should be. It has long been held as a quality writing tool and is very often mention in November to coincide with National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO). I keep toying with the idea to get a copy and now I simply can’t argue with the price. I think this will couple quite nicely with Notebooks for Windows that I just picked up. I can use Notebooks to write down ideas for articles and then transfer them over to Scrivener if they’re going to take more research and links. The features for Scrivener are simply to numerous to mention, but from everything I can see, it’s a feature rich writing environment that can be used as a simple text editor, an outlining tool and production tool. I just picked up a copy and will soon get my feet wet. I do know that it has been a couple of years since I’ve used Microsoft Word as it spends more time mangling what I write than helping me complete it. So, if you’re looking to ditch Word (and well you should) check out this massive discount before it expires. Scrivener for Windows and Mac Black Friday/Cyber […]
