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.



The Ministry to Business Guide

This downloadable resource includes a wealth of expert advice for writers, speakers, podcasters, and online business owners. Even after years working online, I still found so much valuable information in this guide!

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.

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.

Tickets to a Writers Conference

Many writers dream of attending a writers conference one day, but simply can’t afford to go. If you have a special writer in your life, why not bless them with the opportunity to attend a conference?

Here is a list of options from Book Launch Mentor Mary DeMuth.


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 Peach Perfect Rooibos from Molo 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?
