I recently started using a program called Scrivener. Essentially it’s a word processor designed by a writer for writers. It allows you to work with multiple documents all in one window, and if you want compile them into one file. It makes switching between research, outlines, and your manuscript extremely easy. At the end of a project you can export all your files into all the most popular document types.
With that, I’m going try preparing my next few sermons in it to see how it goes. I tend to have pages and pages of research all clumped into one large word document. So sorting through it takes time. It appears that scrivener might be able to clean a lot of that up.
The trial version allows you 30 working days of use with no limitations.
