Scrivener is a Mac writing software developed by keith. Scrivener is an all-in-one book writing software that helps you to manage your writing projects, outline your book-length documents, view and search research files, take notes and so on.
Note, I am mentioning Scrivener here is to tell how Writing Outliner Word addin is going to look like, I have nothing to do with Scrivener which is owned by Keith.
People want ‘Scrivener for Windows’
It seems that there are a lot of people who use PC is wanting a Scrivener-like writing software for Windows, for example, take a look at the outliner software forum, Scrivener has been mentioned many times here and there.

Well, this blog title maybe look weird, but I think it’s quite a good way to explain what the Writing Outliner software project is all about.
What is Scrivener software?
Scrivener is a Mac software for writing books developed by a brilliant developer called Keith, it’s a versatile software tool for writing a book, be it a novel, a non-fiction story, a technical manual, or even a series of related documents such as columns.
While Scrivener has many features that make the book writing process easier, I think one of the big ideas behind Scrivener is that writing a book is not a process that simple start writing from the very beginning straight to the end, but rather it’s a creative process that combines taking notes, jotting down ideas that sparks at any moment, outlining the book structure, editing different chapters back and forth, final formatting and so on.
Why this writing software project started?
Scrivener inspired me when I was thinking of how to make our mind mapping software MindVisualizer more friendly for book writers, and with the help of my friend David who is a very nice and knowledgeable guy, this book writing software project was started.
What’s the difference between Scrivener and Writing Outliner?
- The main difference:
Writing Outliner is for Microsoft Windows PC system while Scrivener is for Apple Mac computer.
- Writing Outliner is a Word addin that integrates seamlessly into Microsoft Word™ while Scrivener is a standalone program.
- Writing Outliner will provide some kind of mind mapping feature for capturing and organizing book writing ideas by integrating withMindVisualizer.
kudos to the author of Scrivener Keith and great thanks to my friend David! Stay tuned!
