Scrivener is my all-time favorite writing tool. I wrote about it here and even shared a brief video demo. Ever since I got Scrivener about four years ago, I haven’t turned back. It’s the perfect resource for organizing and structuring a writing project, then actually getting the writing done.

You can view your work in multiple formats, including a corkboard feature with visual digital index cards that you can drag and drop on the screen in whatever order you’d like. You can also drag actual web pages into a Scrivener file so you have all of your writing and research in one place.

I like the goals feature, where you can set project targets and session targets for each time you open the program. It also saves your spot when you leave a project so you don’t have to scroll down to the last place you stopped.



An Online Course

There’s a plethora of online courses available for writers. Here are some of my favorites:

I wrote this Start-Up Guide for Online Writers e-course as a one-stop shop for people wanting to become established writers online.

How to Self-Publish






Aren’t these the best?! Don’t let another brilliant idea go down the drain. Capture those perfect sentences before it’s too late. 🙂 I personally think a set of AquaNotes would bring a smile to any writer’s face.

Coffee or Tea

Most of the writers I know need all the coffee. And what would be better than the opportunity to go sit at a Starbucks to write for a while? In my opinion, if you’re looking for gifts for writers, you can’t go wrong with a Starbucks gift card.

Or, if your favorite writer is more of a tea person like me, I can highly recommend this Rooibos tea:

A box of NovelTeas is another fun idea:

The vast majority of my writer friends lament, “If only I had more time!” Well, guess what? You could give it to them! If they have young kids, offer to babysit. Make them a meal. Wash their dishes. Sweep their floor. If you’re really feeling generous, gift them with a solo night or weekend away at a cabin in the woods where they can churn out those words they have tucked deep inside. Be creative!


What about you? If you’re a writer, what gift would you like to be given?
