I’m biased – I really like the full toolset of Scrivener. If you’re doing Nanowrimo this year and want to check out Scrivener, see below. For less firepower (but easier budgeting), I’d also highly recommend FocusWriter.
NaNoWriMo 2014 Trial – for Mac and Windows
Scrivener’s first users were Wrimos – I posted an early beta of Scrivener for the Mac on the NaNo Technology forums back in 2005, and those initial users kindly spread the word about Scrivener and provided feedback that has helped shape and improve the program. It has therefore been our great pleasure to give something back by sponsoring NaNoWriMo for the past few years, and so here we are sponsoring NaNoWriMo 2014, with some great offers for those taking part. We’re also offering a special trial version that will last you all the way throughout November, even if you’ve tried Scrivener before – read on for details.
Special Trial Version
Scrivener’s trial normally runs for thirty days of use, but so that you can start using Scrivener before NaNoWriMo begins without worrying about the trial expiring part-way through November, the special NaNo trial available on this page will run from the moment you start using it all the way up until 7th December. So you can download it, get used to its features, use it for your writing throughout November, and if you like it you can buy Scrivener at a discounted price using one of the special offers below.
50% Discount for All NaNoWriMo 2014 Winners
If you achieve your personal target to become a NaNoWriMo 2014 Winner, you will be eligible for a 50% discount off the regular licence of Scrivener (which is normally $45 for the Mac version and $40 for the Windows version). Details will appear on the Winner Goodies page at the start of December.
20% Discount for Everyone Else
Even if you don’t reach your target this year, you can still get 20% off the regular price of Scrivener by entering the discount code NANOWRIMO into the coupon code text field of our online web store.
