The reason the fiction/non-fiction comparison is common is because Story Mill is explicitly focused on fiction (and doesn’t support screenplays at all, since that would steal sales from its companion software Montage) while Scrivener provides a general writing metaphor that can apply to either genre equally well (with limited support for screenplay formatting and footnotes).The truth is that regardless of your genre the deciding factor for which software to use will be a matter of style.Story Mill’s approach is to provide you with a specific framework for writing and organizing, complemented with a focused group of powerful features.In contrast, Scrivener is much more flexible and offers a larger number of features that you can pick and choose from to form your workflow.You can set a daily writing goal and keep track of it using the Progress Meter.There are handy things to help you keep track of cliches and monitor how many times you use a word.Take any and all copies of Mac Journal, place them in the Trash, then empty the Trash.
Type in the following: ~/Library/Preferences/ Once you are in the Preferences folder, locate and file starting with "com. If that doesn't resolve the issue for you, there is still no need to panic.
You can do most of the things in Scrivener that you can in Story Mill (with a few key exceptions), but it will be slightly more effort.
If Story Mill’s framework makes sense to you and you don’t have an urgent need for any of the features that are Scrivener-only, then Story Mill will be the easiest environment to write in.
This is pretty exciting to me, because it means that I can at long last make my Voodoo Pad scratchpad work the way I want.
