A week ago I purchased and downloaded Scrivener after hearing multiple raves about it. Being a NaNoWriMo 2010 winner I had a 50% off code and finally made the leap to purchase it.
So far, I really like it. It took me a little while to figure out how to import my WIP from Word, but once I watched the tutorial (those things really help!) it was easy.
My favorite feature so far has to be the research section. I love being able to store multiple formats of research in one handy-dandy place. Since my current WIP is my NaNoWriMo draft, I didn’t do a lot of research prior to starting, or during November really, so now that I am revising I am researching more to expand and clarify my characters and plot. Scrivener‘s research area is working great for this.
I will be sure to do a more detailed review in a few months once I have had more time using it, but so far I recommend Scrivener! It’s much better than the Word and numerous pieces of paper I was using before, that’s for sure!
