Scrivener as a Professional Writing Tool

As a professional writer -- albeit of long-winded law review articles, exams, trade magazine articles, newsletters, FB updates, and now blog posts -- I pay attention when someone recommends a writing tool.  Today, while reading an article published in The New York Times, I learned about a software program called Scrivener.

I want all lawyers, law review editors, and law students to know about this program.  Our profession tends to adopt new technology tools slowly, but we should run towards this one.  To order a copy, view tutorials, or try a free version for 30-days, see http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php.

The designer offers a 2.0 version for Macs and a 1.0 version for Windows.

P.S.  I was not paid for this advertisement. ;-)

She told me that the paper was too long and she was considering hiring a professional editor to get it from 10,000 to 8,000 words. I was astonished. Professional writing services
