  4. Typewriter. Ring-binder. Scrapbook. Scrivener combines everything you need to craft your first draft, from nascent notion to final full stop.

    Scrivener vs Campfire Pro opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Scrivener is still a legitimate alternative to Campfire Pro, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Camfire Pro is meant for intensive outlining in the pre-writing stage. Scrivener is a word processor and binder to track worldbuilding, characters, research, etc. You cannot write your novel in Campfire Pro.
