In the throws of putting together my master’s thesis, I really have no complaints.
Except maybe one.
I have had so many people look at my chapters, pick over the logic and the grammar, the ideas, which is absolutely fine because it is a part of the process, but I have so many draft copies it is difficult to keep track of the work flow. So thank goodness for the awesome people at Literature and Latte and Scrivener. I praise Scrivener so much in my everyday life that my cohorts have asked if I get a cut off their sales. I don’t; the product has just made my life entirely easier. And I’m all about easy.
I’ve created a folder in the Scrivener binder called DRAFTS.
This might seem convoluted, but the process works for me. Plus, this way, nothing gets accidentally deleted.
- Michael Axelsen's draft academic template
- Thaddeus Hunt's Helpful Guidelines to set up Scrivener as a Complete Blogging System
- The Ohio State University Hacking the Thesis Scrivener Guidelines
- The Writer's Notebook for Scrivener (for fiction, but may have some useful tools for academic specific writing)
 Being an English major, you’ve got to just love that name!
 Wow, right? :)
