Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool designed specifically for writers. It’s much more than a word processor, offering a sophisticated environment in which you can manage all aspects of your writing project. You can keep your drafts, research notes, outlines, and synopses all in one place, and then organise your workspace to display exactly what you need. Many novelists have become evangelical about Scrivener, but it’s also eminently suited to academic writers (and indeed anyone who works on large documents). This ebook is for anyone working on a large non-fiction writing project and wants a better way of managing it. I’m using a doctoral thesis as the main example, but my approach is equally applicable to writing an academic book. I focus on the functionality that’s of particular benefit to researchers, so you can get up and running very quickly without having to learn more than you need. No detailed technical knowledge is required, and you are guided through all the stages with clear instructions and screenshots. Please note, this edition covers only the Windows 1.9.7 version of Scrivener. Reviews from Amazon “Very clear and concise guide. Because it is targeted at thesis writers, it was much more helpful to me than the more general guides but I can see that it would also be useful to anyone new to Scrivener.” 5 stars “The manual has not disappointed my expectations, by making complex issues plain and simple, and yet fully exhaustive and rich in informational content. As a result, in short time I was able to put Scrivener, and myself, happily at work.” 5 stars “This ebook was invaluable when I was trying to use Scrivener to write my thesis. I had heard about Scrivener and how wonderful it was but somehow never really got to grips with all its functionality. Then I read Catherine Pope’s guide to writing your thesis with Scrivener. Its focus on writing a thesis was perfect for my needs, the instructions are very clear and the illustrations helped enormously.” 5 stars CONTENTS INTRODUCTION What is Scrivener? Who is behind it?

Expert writing advice from the editor of the Boston Globe best-seller, The Writer's Home Companion Dissertation writers need strong, practical advice, as well as someone to assure them that their struggles aren't unique. Joan Bolker, midwife to more than one hundred dissertations and co-founder of the Harvard Writing Center, offers invaluable suggestions for the graduate-student writer. Using positive reinforcement, she begins by reminding thesis writers that being able to devote themselves to a project that truly interests them can be a pleasurable adventure. She encourages them to pay close attention to their writing method in order to discover their individual work strategies that promote productivity; to stop feeling fearful that they may disappoint their advisors or family members; and to tailor their theses to their own writing style and personality needs. Using field-tested strategies she assists the student through the entire thesis-writing process, offering advice on choosing a topic and an advisor, on disciplining one's self to work at least fifteen minutes each day; setting short-term deadlines, on revising and defing the thesis, and on life and publication after the dissertation. Bolker makes writing the dissertation an enjoyable challenge.
