Templates for Scrivener

Don’t let the term “template” intimidate you. A template is nothing more than a pattern for processes that enhance consistency. Writing a full length novel uses many processes.

All software programs have learning curves, and some steeper than others. But studying a complex application can steal your precious time from writing.

Take heart! There are templates that can flatten your learning curve. Downloading and using a formatted template guides and simplifies the process, shortening your study time.
