Keith Blount

Keith BlountKeith Blount is the designer and creator of Scrivener, software for the Mac (and soon Windows too) for supporting the creative process of writing and structuring the first drafts of long texts. Self-confessed possessor of a disorderly mind and a desk to match, after struggling to order the ideas, research and notes to be used in his own novel, he designed Scrivener. While the novel has unfortunately yet to be completed, his software has been enthusiastically adopted by numerous best-selling authors and screenwriters, including the following:

  • Charles Stross
  • Michael Marshall Smith
  • Conrad Williams
  • Mike Sussman
  • Anthony Johnson
  • Holly Lisle
  • Matt Forbeck
  • Tobias S. Buckell
  • Martin Sketchley
  • Gregory Frost
  • Lou Anders
  • and many, many others

Keith’s company is also a sponsor of the hugely popular NaNoWriMo writing event.

He lives in Cornwall.

    This used to be the most awesome software around. Now it’s even better with 2.0 and the Windows version around the corner. Go Keith and team. You guys are the best!

    Hooked on Scrivener.

    In the video Getting Started–An Introduction To Scrivener 3, I enjoyed reading parts of the book that was used in the demonstration. How may I purchase it?
