As part of writing my first book, called "Leadership Toolbox for Project Managers / Achieve better results in a dynamic world", I had to find a solution to format the book. I wanted the book to look professional. I did buy Scrivener a year ago, but didn't use it much. It is so powerful that it can be confusing when you try to use it for the first time. David Lee Martin provides an excellent course, making it easy to understand and use Scrivener. My only regret: I didn't do the course sooner. I would have completed my book much faster. The book is now published and I could not have done it so quickly without this excellent course. http://www.project-aria.ca/go/leadership- toolbox-for-project-managers/ I strongly recommend this book for authors. I will definitely write my second book with Scrivener.

I found very simple and easy to follow Martin's instructions and advices about how to use Scrivener. This course helped me a lot to understand how Scrivener works and why is an excellent tool for writers, journalist and any user with the aim to write and publish clean and fast on different formats and channels. I personally think that Scrivener will be the leader on writer's choice and self publishing, it will be growing in features and workflows; Martin's course is a great point to start very fast and understand how this radical software can help you to write in a timely, accurate and organized manner as was intended to. Thank you Martin :-)

I have discovered Scrivener about a month ago. It is an awesome software package. However, there are many things in it that are not very obvious or intuitive. This course definitely fills the gap. It has made me really comfortable with the software. David gives tons of useful tips on various best practices. Excellent course!

I don't buy a lot of courses but this one was a necessity I couldn't avoid. Scrivener os a cool peace of software but there's so much in it that you need too much time to figure out how to use it. Thanks to David and his course, I few hours of learning made me almost expert in Scrivener.

I have had scrivener for years and tinkered away with it, not realising the full potential until this course. It has made writing even better and more productive. Thoroughly recommend anyone using scrivener to do the course

I have owned Scrivener for a while, but became discouraged when working through the tutorial that comes with it - it just seemed too complex. This Udemy course is my passport to actually being able to use Scrivener. David's presentations are watchable and well produced, and give the information that is required by a busy writer rather than by a geek. I look forward to completing the course and becoming a competent Scrivener writer!

I have gone through 54 of the short lessons so far and I am so pleased with the clear, specific, and easy to follow instructions David Lee Martin gives. After just a few hours I can use this - otherwise complicated - incredible Scrivener program to put the production of my writings on steroids. As you go through the course you'll probably say, like me, "wow," "unreal," "unbelievable." I wish I had found this course a long time ago!

David takes a complicated looking Scrivener and breaks it down so it is as simple as using word. By the time you finish this course you will be able to use this powerful software.

I've been wanting to master Scrivener for a few years now, but there are so many features, knowing where to start is overwhelming. This course is perfect! It takes you systematically through the features of Scrivener in bite-sized chunks.

David Lee Martin is a very caring instructor and has produced a comprehensive, easy-to-follow pathway for mastering Scrivener in more than 100 small steps. He also offers extensive "upcoming material" to further deepen understanding and usage. Really looking forward to consuming this new material too!

I almost didn't buy this course because I'd been using Scrivener for a couple of years. I'm glad I did - David showed me I'd only scratched the surface of this powerful software tool. He's a great teacher who patiently goes in a very methodical manner through the many capabilities of the program. Thanks to this course, I'm currently working on a professional non-fiction e-book in Scrivener that I plan to publish. David showed it is a lot easier than I ever imagined. If you've never used Scrivener, this is a great course to get you going quickly. Even if you are a seasoned Scrivener user, as I was, GET THIS COURSE.

Worth noting that there are probably easier ways to get up and running quickly with Scrivener. That said, this course offers a practising writer’s perspective of getting up and running with Scrivener. Further, it offers a quite detailed tour of those Scrivener features and workflows that practising writers use – adding content; managing research; focusing on the writing; proofing; compiling for print and electronic media; etc. This is exactly what I am looking for, and as such, the course provides me with great value. (As a disclaimer, I am only part way through this course. I also got it a great price point so my value equation is likely different to most.)

This course is great in explaining about Scrivener. The structure of the course has been well planned - each lesson is presented with great clarity in a concise, right to the point manner and the course progresses in a logical flow. This large course is about as comprehensive as it should be without overwhelming me with too much information. David (the instructor) covers each topic engagingly with amazing attention to detail. Also, working files and external resources are generously provided whenever applicable. What impresses me most are the insights he shares based on his own experience - the practical tips that would save me a lot of time from having to figure it out myself. In a nutshell, if you're looking to learn about Scrivener, this course will help you get there effectively.

I am a writer with two finished books and 300 book ideas. It took so long to write them that I knew I had to get Scrivener if I was ever going to write all of these books, but when I did, it was to complicated. This course fixed that and I have now nearly completed a 13 book series and just as importantly I actually know how to make it look perfect and publish it on multiple platforms with the proper formatting. Thank you so much! Every writer needs Scrivener and this course on how to make the most out of it.

I've had Scrivener for some time. Never realised there was so much to the program. This course has been a real eye opener for me. Learning some real cool tips and tricks. I was actually struggling with the simplest of tasks such as adding folders and moving them around. They kept dropping in as 'sub folders' for some reason. A video in the course explained this and what to do to ensure it doesn't happen again. I like that the videos are only short. That way I can spend 10 minutes at a time looking at various sections. I hate long videos! So have found the course easy to work through. If you have Scrivener you really need this course. For the price it's excellent. Thanks David Martin for a very educational course. At last I'm learning how to use Scrivener which in turn makes the task of writing easier.

While I am not a Scrivener expert, I have learned a lot before taking David's course. Well at least I thought I knew a lot. My choice of programs for writing Kindle books has been Microsoft Word using my own Kindle templates. I have a book that is published but needs revision. David's lessons on how to perform an automatic import of the entire word document into Scrivener in one go was good. But even better was the lesson on how to easily split out the chapters from the word document into Scrivener chapter. But WAIT!. The best lesson was how to set up your word document with placeholders so Scrivener will automatically make chapters with titles from the headers in your word document. This one is so cool. I am down to the compile part of the course where the real beauty of Scrivener shines. Compile in Mobi for Kindle, epub, PDF, a word docx and other formats are covered.

The videos are very professionally done in HD format with easy to see parts of Scrivener plus David shows the keys to use for key board shortcuts. The videos use the MAC version so the keys are slightly different in the PC version of Scrivener but not much. I put off using Scrivener for over a year which has slowed my writing down immensely. However waiting for David's course will help me to shorten my learning curve for Scrivener and will speed up future writing. This course is a good one for the beginner and intermediate Scrivener user. And maybe even the experts might learn some new tricks.

I've been working with Scrivener for a while now, but really wanted to get more out of this program. David's course is a great tutorial that covers all aspects of using Scrivener. Easy-to-follow videos make using Scrivener much more productive.

I purchased Scrivener over a year ago, but haven't really used it much. I found the program to be confusing and a bit intimidating. So I was very excited to see a Scrivener course here on Udemy. I was even more exited once I started the course and found out how good it was. The instructor does an excellent job of presenting Scrivener in very small bite-size chunks that are easy to understand - so you can move as fast or as slow as you want. He also focuses in on the meat of the program. He highlights the important features that you need to be productive. There is a lot of power in Scrivener - but you really only need to understand a small part of the program to get writing - and that's what he starts with. He then builds upon the basics and moves into some of the more advanced features.

First I want to say that if I could add a star - I would. The course just kept getting better and better. The instructor has added to the course, since I began and has expanded on many topics. If you use Scrivener, or want to use Scrivener - this course is a must!!
