How Dragon Dictation and Scrivener Can Help You Write Faster and Smarter

Authors have two jobs: to write fabulous books and to market those books. Both responsibilities involve writing and lots of it!

Maybe you lack the tools for organizing your book, or maybe you just feel like you don’t have enough time to finish your manuscript, write blog posts, write email campaigns and write guest posts on other blogs. It’s overwhelming unless you have tools that can streamline the process.

At this month’s meeting you’ll learn about:

  • A dictation software that will transcribe your words in real time
  • Using a digital recorder to plug into the dictation software that will allow you to speak your book, blog posts and emails in a fraction of what it would take to type it
  • Scrivener, a manuscript organization tool that gives you drag-and-drop capability and ultimate flexibility to compile all the elements of your manuscript.


We’ll show you via live demonstration how these tools will help you work faster and smarter.
