  1. The Webinar was awesome. I have already purchased the training using the discount. I am having a blast looking at all the bonus stuff, especially the video by JoAnn Penn. Who knew it could do all that? Not me, lol. It was an exercise in frustration, until now. I am excited. I can’t wait now to transfer my WIP from Word to Scrivener. Thank you for the opportunity to learn about this.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Awesome! I’m in the process of switching over too. Already doing my fiction in Scrivener and am now in the process of moving my non-fiction books over there. I can see myself using it for blogging in the future as well.

      • Yes, I will be using it for blogging too. I have two other projects that I have not really started on, so I will put all that into Scrivener. Again, thanks for the great Webinar. Happy Writing.

  2. I am so glad I can watch this! Thank you!

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      I’m glad you can too! Joseph did a great job introducing Scrivener. I learned a lot of tricks I didn’t even know were possible.

  3. This webinar was very helpful and fun. Heck yeah, let’s do more!

  4. Bryn Clark says

    Omgosh, I needed this so much. I’ve had Scrivener for 2 months just sitting on my computer because it was just too intimidating. During the replay today, I got everything exported and POV’s color-coded, I put in a word count goal both daily and for the project and I am SO PUMPED right now!

    Thank you SO MUCH.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      That’s fantastic! Love it when something good (like Scrivener) finally starts coming together for people.

  5. thomas h cullen says

    I didn’t participate in the event; however as I did say before Katie:

    I’m sure you handled yourself well, making best of what you were equipped with.

    (Hope it was fun!)

  6. I didn’t get to attend this webinar but was a part of one earlier I the year it was awesome. Scrivener is the sort of writing tool I wish I had a long time ago and Joseph Michael makes its easy to learn it.
    It would be great to see more like this. As always K.M. you always deliver the best, most useful pieces of information. Great work

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Thanks, Michael! We had a ton of fun with Joseph’s presentation. I know I, for one, learned tons. Definitely will be looking into doing more of these in the future.

  7. The Webinar was great (already purchased bothe the sotware and the Basics Tutorial). Thank you for the promotion.

    I am not sure if anyone was able to watch Evernote to Scrivener bonus video yet. I tried to open it and also sent it to friends to try in case it was just me, but none of us could.

    I really want to watch that, so far all my research is in Evernote.


    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      I’m so sorry you’re having problems with the Evernote video! I just double-checked it, and it does work for me. It’s a little pop-out video player, so perhaps you have a pop-up blocker running that’s disabling it?

    • Hey, Stela,
      I had an issue with the videos last week – I was using Chrome and couldn’t view any of the videos. I fixed my issue in two ways: I was able to first view the video by trying it in a different browser (Firefox, in my case). Then, I did a little digging and discovered that and one of my extensions was preventing me from viewing the video in Chrome. Now I can watch the videos in my usual browser.

  8. Haven’t watched yet–But i love everything you share. I’m using Scrivener right now, blindly. This will be a great help. Thanks!

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      I started using the Ninja course shortly after the webinar. Watch out! They’re addictive!

    • I also signed up for the Ninja course – it paid for itself last night. I had a section of text that was critical to my WIP. I cut it to paste in another place but somehow managed to save something else over it, thus losing it. I hadn’t saved a Snapshot of my work when I started (I’ll be changing that habit). I tried everything I could think of for two hours. I even went to my home computer equipped with Dropbox, pulled the network cable, and opened Scrivener. I figured the missing work would still be there, but forgot how Dropbox works – it had already updated the changed files automatically. (This is usually a good thing.)

      As a last resort, I went to Joe’s videos and started going through them. I hadn’t saved a Snapshot and thus had no ‘gold’ file to go back to. And then I came across my salvation – the video on restoring backups was news to me and saved some significant work that I feared was utterly lost. I changed the Backups directory to Dropbox as well to access it from anywhere, and I’m now taking Snapshots before I start doing major surgery.

  9. Dear Ms Weiland,

    On your recommendation, I purchased the video-coaching on Scrivener and am learning the program at my pace.

    My question is that in view of your strong endorsement of John Truby’s book as a “must read,” do you know of any coaching available on doing the nine exercises in his book on SCRIVENER?

    I have posted a detailed review of Truby’s “The Anatomy of Story” on amazon.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Unfortunately, no, I don’t know of any Scrivener template that yet incorporates John Truby’s principles. It would be a great thing though!

  10. I purchased the video-coaching on Scrivener to, I am looking forward to starting. Thanks for the recommendation and the post.

  11. I just watched a replay of the webinar and it was excellent! Joesph gave a wealth of information and it was enough for me to know that I am definitely getting Scrivener and probably will get the training course as well.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Joe is a great presenter. I’m sure you’ll learn lots of his course. I love it!

  12. CM Friesen says

    I really enjoyed the webinar, so much so that I finally bought Scrivener, and the discounted Learn Scrivener Fast course. I’m writing a five or six book series; hoping to finish and publish the first book either late this year or early next, and not tripping over my own technology trying to write will really help.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      That’s great! I’m so glad you enjoyed the presentation. Joe really packs in the value. Hope you find Scrivener as useful as I have!

  13. Wow, thank you so much for this goodie!

  14. Thanks for this replay! I had signed up, but kid issues prevented me from attending live. I had heard of Scrivener (from you, mostly!) but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take the risk – but I kept going: wow! Amazing! Great! So it looks like it’s on my wish-list 😉

  15. I love Scrivener, but I know there are things I’m missing out on, so I’m watching the replay now.

    I did have problems with Chrome (only getting sound, not video) but once I disabled Adblock the video came back.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Yeah, Chrome’s been kind of stinky with playback ever since they started switching from Flash to a native video software. I generally use Firefox for for video these days.

      Enjoy the replay!

  16. Cool, I’ll have to give this a look. I love Scrivener, but I’m hardly and expert. I’m sure there are tons of features I haven’t figured out yet.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Yes, there are still things I know I could be taking better advantage of–like the metadata.

  17. A year ago trying to learn Scrivener by myself with the Neverending Tutorial, I was pulling my hair out until I had none left and finally gave up. Now, with Joe’s videos, I am saying, “Cool!” “Wow!” “Great!”

  18. Dave Pettegrew says

    So I have about ninety pages of my book on a new Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I just took it from handwritten form and have another one fifty to two hundred more pages handwritten. How could I integrate this with scrivener? Or would I need to start again from scratch? Or what should I do? Regards Dave Pettegrew

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      You could easily import it and organize it on Scrivener. However, I will say I didn’t switch over to Scrivener myself until I started a new project.


  1. […] Also, don’t forget Joe is giving all Wordplayers (that’s you!) a special discounted price on his Scrivener training course (I use the Ninja level every day). And I’ve thrown in digital versions of the Outlining Your Novel Workbook and the Structuring Your Novel Workbook, as well as the nifty …read more […]
