    You should definitely check out Scrivener. It looks like DEVONThink, but is focused on writing projects.

    Hi Gina,

    Congratulations on Smarterware!

    I (for one) would be interested in the scripts you used to bring the blog posts into DT. Any chance of an “addendum” to this post? 😉

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Gina,

    Just found you through a twitter message. Unfortunately I don’t own a mac, so what I do is to use celtx which is multi-platform, and although intended for movie scripts it is also a great tool to organize a project.

    Hi Gina,
    I discover your new blog on twitter.
    I haven’t a Mac. I’m on linux and I use Zotero to organize papers, books and articles on my pc. Tags help me to do the rest.

    Gina, great to see your new site! I’m writing my first book and have been trying Evernote, but I don’t know if it is the right thing for me.

    Looks like something worth a try. I’d be interested to see if a newer version has post import built in without scripting.

    That looks like a truly helpful piece of software. Maybe it’s time for me to finally get a Mac.

    Hi Gina, I second the request for the scripts you used to massage text into your DEVONthink database.

    In particular, are there any scripts that can chop up a big text file into smaller chunks that are better suited to being read by DEVONthink’s semantic algorithm?

    Another question: Do you create a separate, new database for each new project? Or do you keep everything in one massive Outboard Brain-style database?

    I’m curious if you’ve tried the newest version of DEVONthink that’s just been released (version 2.0), and if it’s any better. I used the previous version for a while, but ended up ditching it for a homebrewed notes orginization setup.

    And I’ll also second the recommendation for Scrivener. It’s a mighty fine piece of software.
