Scrivener became my writing tool of choice, and it is still among my favorites. But one thing I realized about Scrivener is that it is as much a writer “project management” tool as it is a writing tool. What I was really looking for was something that would let me write and get out of the way.
I first heard of Writer in an interview with Michael Chabon during which he plugged the app. It sounded interesting especially since it supported TextExpander on the iPad–something I’ve recently started making more extensive use of.
Ia Writer provides a distraction-free environment for your writing. I've found it wonderful for my novels.
