Tee Morris and Philippa Ballantine discussed their favorite writing software, Scrivener. That’s my favorite writing software, too! I completely agreed with all the reasons they gave for their devotion to Scrivener — the organization tools, the corkboard feature, the ability to import web pages and photos and other research into your binder, and all the many ways to customize the tool to suit your own needs. But my two favorite features didn’t get mentioned — not that I blame them. There are so many features, how could you talk about all of them?
First, I love the name generator. You can pick a gender, click on the types of names (German? Catalan? Hindi? Polish? Popular London Surnames?), and then dial up the obscurity level. Viola! Your heroine will be Innocenta Rathmell. Hmm, maybe too far on the obscurity level.
