My name is Joseph Michael. I help people become world-class writers by mastering Scrivener. My Scrivener coaching has helped even best-selling authors and full-time writers like Michael Hyatt and Joanna Penn create their best work. I didn't start out this way though. I started out like 99% percent of Scrivener users opening the program for the first time.
Can you imagine this?
I get Scrivener. I open it up. And I immediately slap my palm against my forehead. I remember thinking...
What Was This Alien Force That Hijacked My Will to Write and Left Me Feeling Like I Might As Well Quit While I'm Ahead?
I went from a self-proclaimed 'tech guy' to feeling dumb, frustrated, and even 'crazy' because I couldn't for the life of me figure out how this darn thing worked. I was drowning in all of the ebooks I was writing, blog posts for the other 2 websites I run, and I just couldn't wrap my head around Scrivener.
How could a tool that's supposed to help you write more...make you feel like you're not getting any writing done at all?
So with deadlines hanging over me...blogs to be scheduled...drafts to be revised...and books to be published…
How Did I Solve The 'Mind-Boggling' Scrivener Problem You ask?
I decided to do what no one else was willing to do.
I put my nose down and invested all of my energy into figuring the thing out. All those thousands of hours I could have been writing I spent on reading every Scrivener book, watching every tutorial, reading every comment in every forum to see if I could find people like me...people who understood what I was going through!
Now, I know what you may be thinking: "Did this guy seriously waste his life trying to figure out a piece of writing software?"
Well, I did think of all the other things I could have been doing with my time instead of trying to master Scrivener...which I did end up eventually doing.
But Instead, I Stumbled Upon Something Incredible
One day, I was reading one of Michael Hyatt's blog posts about why he uses Scrivener for all of his work. When you start reading about people like him using it, you begin to see why they can make a living from writing.
So I was reading through all of the comments from Hyatt's post for my daily Scrivener research, and I saw that Michael said something that would change the course of my life.
In one of the comments he said something to a reader who was getting really frustrated with Scrivener (no surprise there). And what he said hit me like a ton of bricks.
He said: "If there was a course on Scrivener, I would buy it today !"
It was then that I had an epiphany. All of my hard work, all of those hundreds of hours I devoted to figuring Scrivener out, all of it was for you.
