    Storyist for Mojave?

    I've also upgraded to Mac OS Mojave on both a late 2013 iMac and a mid-2017 MacBook Pro, and love it. I'm running Storyist v.3.52 on both machines and it seems fine. Also, I am very happy that Storyist is not "abandonware." For me, it is more intuitive and user-friendly than its leading competitor. Go Storyist!

    Scrivener 3 User Trying Out Storyist

    Thank you for the insight, Marguerite. I hadn't gotten that far in the conversion process yet, but this will no doubt help save time and aggravation. I honestly didn't realize Scrivenings were separate files so that is certainly good to know. I'm about 60K words into my novel so the conversion may likely be easier said than done. Again, I think Scrivener is an excellent app, but I'm looking forward to completing this project with Storyist and weighing the experience in light of my growing frustration with Scrivener's complexity and distraction. I'm a life-long computer user with very strong analytical and tech skills (MBA, Mensa, etc.) but I simply don't want to invest weeks or months learning a new piece of software when it does little or nothing to actually improve my writing. I need more focus on my plots, characters, settings, and timelines than I do on simply organizing my writing projects. The only way a software program can do that well is to stay out of my way when I'm using it, and I think Storyist will be much better at that than Scrivener. Again, thank you!
  3. Greetings -- As of this moment I am the newest member of this forum and am looking forward to reading some of the thousands of posts before me. I have been using Scrivener 3 but I'm finding the "overhead" too high for my liking. Although it is feature-rich, I will never use many of its capabilities, and access to those features I do need is not always obvious. In short, I think Scrivener is a fine piece of software, but it often uses up too much of my creative oxygen. In short, when I write with Scrivener, I'm focused on Scrivener. When I write with Storyist, I'm focused on my story. That is why I'm taking a closer look at Storyist. Some might argue that Scrivener is more capable than Storyist, but I don't believe that is necessarily true. I find the Storyist user interface and command structure more intuitive and that means I am more productive as a writer when I use Storyist than when using Scrivener. I'm in the middle of writing a fairly complex sci-fi novel at the moment and am looking forward to importing my Scrivener file into Storyist in the coming days. I'm looking forward to reading many of the great tips and lessons learned in this forum as I make this journey.
