Re: The 'How To Write' Thread

So after years of getting pestered, I finally took the plunge and downloaded Scrivener (well, I didn't take the "pay plunge" yet, I still ahve the rest of the month to "try it out" but I guarantee I'll be paying).  I was really hesitant about it because it seemed like, well, ONE: each project would take up a lot of space, especially with all the reference I use, so I'm trying to cut back on that, and TWO: It seemed like it would make it really easy to skip steps.  The way my workflow is designed now, I need to have complete a step before I can start another, I need confidence and actual material.  The way Scrivener works, where you have everything at your fingertips, seems like it would be really easy to work out of order and screw the whole thing up.  So what I'm actually using it for isn't so much writing as it is long-term storage of miscellaneous ideas.  Stuff that's waiting for a story and characters to be attached to.

It'll be really interesting to see how the program effects my workflow.  I'm pretty well organized, but I'm also a lateral thinker so I like to have everything separate.  It's not so bad now after one day but I can see these things becoming really convoluted really quickly.
