Scrivener and the Failure to Outline

March 29th, 2016

Lots of writers rave about Scrivener, but I find that I still don’t care for it.  I know I wrote about it once upon a time, but honestly, I can’t find the post but I would link to it if I could.  I recently went back to Scrivener when I wanted to start a new novel, everyone I know seems to like it and I figured that I ought to give it another chance.  I updated from the old version that I had (1.0.2) and went to the most recent (1.8.6), but it’s inability to outline the way that I want really makes it useless for me.  I outline more like a flow chart and it just doesn’t allow me to do that.  Without some form of flow-charting system, Scrivener doesn’t give me anything special that I can’t get just using Word.
