If you’ve ever scribbled down ideas all over a piece of paper and drawn lines between related thoughts, then you already know what Scapple does.

I invested in the Ninja level for this Scrivener Learning Program and I am thrilled. I love Scrivener now and wished I had not waited, so long to learn it despite the learning curve. I love having everything in one project able to view it, reach, note, pictures, timeline, mind mapping from brainstorming, ideas, or anything I want to include all in one project, instead of multiple documents. I love being able to add my own backgrounds to my writing while I am writing for inspiration. I also love all the bonuses The Scrivener Coach offers and has added since I bought this tutorial course. For me, it has been worth the investment long term.
