If you have ever considered using Scrivener writing software, Amazon is currently selling the writing app at a 50 percent discount from the list price.

Literature & Latte publishes the software, selling the PC version for $40 and the Mac version for $45. Over at Amazon, the PC version currently sells for $20 and the Mac version for $22.50. A number of published authors have praised the software. Journalist and author Jonathan M. Katz called the program “the Bruce Lee of word processors.” Here is more from Katz:

I know books were written before Scrivener, but I’m not sure how. And I certainly don’t care to find out. This program made it possible for me to think, compose, edit, and effectively use research, all while protecting the good people of Brooklyn from thrown laptops. Its only major shortcoming is that everyone doesn’t use it yet, meaning constantly jarring and injurious returns to Microsoft Word once a chapter was in the world. But other than that, five stars, and my heartfelt admiration. Scrivener is.
