Novlr users are the best…!

We’ve been working a lot behind the scenes of Novlr with the performance of the tool lately making it faster and more accessible for you. During that time, our users have been sharing their love with us. We love receiving emails from new and seasoned Novlr users as it reminds us exactly why this app was built. A few recent emails and tweets put a big old smile on our faces….

“Absolutely genius! I had all my writing saved on multiple devices, backed up to USB flash drives, Google drive, external hard disks, obsolete PCs and now… now a miracle has occurred and I have all my manuscripts… all of them… ALL OF THEM.. saved in one single safe readily accessible organised location. Novlr has revolutionised my life. Thank you.” Catherine O’Neill

“You folks are awesome! Keep up the great work. One day I’m going to be a writer and I’m happy to know my Novlr account is here for that very day. :)” Cheri McLeod

How to Use Novlr to Support A Non-Fiction Writing Business by Kari Sayers

In May 2014, I stumbled across a random tweet about a tool called Novlr. It hadn’t quite launched yet, but by the description of it, a simple tool for writers by writers, it was just what I needed.

At the time, I was struggling to find a user-friendly writing software to help me boost my writing productivity and keep me organized. Like many ambitious writers, I had already tried my hand at using Scrivener–and failed.

I consider myself a semi-tech-savvy gal, especially given the fact that I previously taught myself how to build WordPress websites and learned how to use basic HTML code on my own accord–which kind of makes me a baby ninja by some standards, don’t you think?

But like so many other writers, I quickly learned that Scrivener, albeit a great tool with a lot of bells and whistles, is like an intricate puzzle that takes time to piece together; time that I would have much rather spent writing.

So, after a few weeks of trying to make it work, I realized that it simply wasn’t the best tool for me and my writing needs. I needed something simple and intuitive to help me organize my short works of fiction and non-fiction, and to keep me on track with my writing goals.

Enter Novlr. I signed up to get a beta invite, and when the beta program launched in August 2014, I became one of the first people to use Novlr.

Almost immediately, my writing productivity shot through the roof. In a matter of two weeks, I’d outlined and written my first book inside of Novlr with more ease and confidence than any book that I’d ever written inside a Word Doc. Needless to say, I was floored!

Since then, I’ve used Novlr in my writing process for 10+ books. As Novlr has evolved, so have I evolved in the different uses I’ve found for this awesome tool. I’m currently using Novlr not only to quickly outline and write my short works of non-fiction, but also to outline my online courses before I record and publish them. I’ve even started using the tool in my blog post planning.

My goal is for writers to read this post, and understand that Novlr can be used for more than just plotting your next epic novel. It’s a tool that can cater to the everyday simple tasks of non-fiction writers like me who not only write books, but also create online courses, write blog posts, and more.

I hope this post encourages you to start getting even more value out of your Novlr subscription. It’s a great tool that continues to evolve in an effort to make our lives easier as writers. Whether you are a fiction or non-fiction writer, it can help you better organize your writing business and be more productive.

Happy Writing!
