What if you had a personal organizational superhero for writing your novel?

Writing a novel can be a chaotic, messy process.

What if your writing software helped you surf your creative process, instead of make you crazy?

What if you had a personal organizational superhero for writing your novel?

That way you wouldn’t have to jump around between programs searching for the information that you absolutely MUST have to complete your next bit of writing.

That’s what Scrivener was created for!

So that you can write your book with all your notes, charts, and images in one place.

Whether you’re an outliner who wants to have your scene-by-scene plan open in a second pane as you write or you’re a completely freeform writer who wants the freedom to jump between non-consecutive scenes as you follow your muse, Scrivener allows you to work on your book in the way that works best for you.

Contrary to popular belief, getting started with Scrivener doesn’t take hours or require an advanced degree.

Come to our upcoming training so you can learn how to use Scrivener to write your novel.

My guest expert is Vanessa Kier, novelist, and Scrivener and tech coach for writers at The Writer’s Tech Stop.

She firmly believes that learning Scrivener can be fun, especially when the steps are delivered in bite-sized pieces and manageable chunks.

She writes action-packed romantic thrillers and has written four of her novels using Scrivener.

If you’re ready to step into a writing program that’s flexible enough to adapt to your needs, that can accommodate both the intensely organized and the proudly unorganized writer then join us for this special training:

Vanessa Kier has been helping writers with Scrivener and tech issues since 2010.

She writes the Tech Talk column for the San Francisco RWA’s newsletter and is a monthly contributor to the Writer’s Fun Zone blog.

Her goal is to empower writers to see tech as an ally, not an enemy. Using her own experiences as a fiction author, Vanessa demystifies tech by offering writers clear explanations paired with practical examples. A teacher at heart, she has taught physically and mentally challenged children how to ride horses and business executives how to use complex databases.

She offers online classes, one-on-one coaching, and tech assistance at The Writer’s Tech Stop. For free how-to videos, check out her YouTube channel.

When she’s wearing her creative hat, Vanessa writes action-packed romantic thrillers. The six books in her first series, The Surgical Strike Unit (SSU), follow a privately run special operations group as it attempts to keep dangerous scientific data out of the hands of those who’d use it to throw the world into chaos. These globetrotting books are a little bit Bourne Identity and a little bit Raiders of the Lost Ark, with a few lighter moments thrown in à la Romancing the Stone.

Her current series, WAR, focuses on a team of international soldiers fighting to help contain a regional rebellion that’s threatening global stability. The WAR series is set in West Africa, where Vanessa lived for a time. You can find more information about Vanessa’s books at her website, https://www.vanessakier.com/.
