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, and templates for Scrivener can help.
All software programs have learning curves, and some are 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.
Types of Templates for Scrivener
Scrivener templates come in two varieties, and both can help your writing:
- Template Sheets are useful for creating character profiles, story settings, and much more. A template sheet serves many purposes. Like a form, you can reuse template sheets to enhance the consistency of your writing.
- Use a Project Template whenever you start a new writing “project.” You open a project template based on your preferences. For example, Scrivener comes with several project templates, such as Blank, Fiction, and Non-Fiction.
