Book Description

Evernote® : The Free Online Service for Organizing Your Projects

If you scribble notes on the back of envelopes and napkins and then manage to forget the idea or where you put the napkin - you need Evernote. This service will organize all of your projects and ideas into online file folders, keeping them safe until the day you hit the Delete key. 

Evernote : The Key to Uncluttering Your Desktop, Your Browser and Your Brain

If you're a writer you won't believe how you survived before you started using Evernote. And I'm not only talking about people who write for a living - I'm also talking about people who write for business or school. Evernote really is the storehouse of

  • random thoughts
  • meeting notes
  • research
  • images
  • book outlines
  • project outlines
  • audio interviews
  • deadlines
  • assignments
  • collaborative notes

in other words - anything you need to remember. In fact, Evernote is so good at what it does that the company's motto is Remember Everything

Don't Risk Losing Important Writing or Research 

Back in the day it was easy to stuff pieces of paper into a filing cabinet. Chances are that once the paper was filed you rarely went back to it. Even now, you may use your computer as a filing system - exchanging metal file drawers for hard drive Folders and Sub-Folders. But even that system has its limits. That's because it relies on you remembering the names of folders and files. 

With Evernote, the entire system is graphical - that means you can click on an Evernote folder and instantly see the picture of the website, screenshot or image you saved. Which reminds me - did I mention you can also save audio and video files? And, Evernote syncs perfectly with your tablet, iPhone or Android. Evernote has such a powerful on-board search engine that all you have to do is enter a word or two and it will pull up everything you've saved that fits the search criteria. You don't have to remember anything because it remembers everything.

What You'll Learn

  • how to set up your account
  • downloading Evernote for your mobile device or desktop
  • syncing between devices
  • setting up Folders and Notes
  • the value of tagging
  • how to be an Evernote power searcher
  • setting up research notebooks
  • mobile Evernote
  • Evernote apps
  • how to collect digital content
  • how to use Skitch - the free Evernote mark-up app
  • tagging geolocations
  • how to use Evernote with the iPhone's Siri
  • free ways to store tweets, Facebook posts and more to Evernote

and bunches more.

Written for Writers But Useable by Anyone

How to Use Evernote for Writing & Research was created for writers - but the truth is, if you need to remember anything, save anything, or return to any website, Evernote is your perfect go-to assistant. That's probably why Evernote is popular with writers, artists, bloggers, podcasters, business people, students, and researchers. That includes YOU!

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed full of tips and techniques for writers/authors to streamline their planning, research, and writing 25 July 2014
By Michelle - author of 'Goodreads for Authors' - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I used to be an IT teacher and was introduced to Evernote by a student. That was years ago and Evernote then was a bit unstable on smartphones. I've since rediscovered it and find it excellent - and very stable. I use it for my household receipts and personal finance. It's really useful and it has got me out of hot water on more than one occasion - for example when not being able to find a receipt or other important document. But I've always had a vague sense of not really understanding the full power of Evernote - and not having the time or inclination to get to know it better!
I have written a couple of books with Nancy so I trust her opinion and respect her knowledge and experience. Downloading this book wasn't a difficult decision. I don't have to do the 'I got an ARC copy' disclaimer because I didn't, Nancy didn't ask me to review it or send me a free copy - I downloaded it free using my Kindle Unlimited account (what a great idea that is!). I'll probably buy it, though, because this is one I'll want to keep on my Kindle to be able to refer back to.
I'm excited about being able to use Evernote really efficiently for my research and writing. I have learned a lot from this book. I didn't know I could use audio notes in Evernote and that's going to be a huge thing for me because I really like to take audio notes on my iPhone. I find it very freeing to be able to grab it and hit Record when I want to remember something for later but don't want to break off from whatever I'm doing. Making images searchable was another "D'oh!" moment. I don't know why I didn't think of that before. I generally save images (photos or screenshots I've taken of things that interest me online) to my iPhone camera roll and end up deleting them eventually, either because I've run out of space or because I can't remember why they interested me. Being able to tag them in Evernote will really, really help.
Nancy has a lovely way of taking a big, complicated topic and breaking it down into manageable, understandable chunks. That's what she has done with this book. I feel like I get really 'get' Evernote now and I'm not stuck to just using the basics.
I also love the way she points important things out, e.g. "That last paragraph was really important - so, just in case you skimmed over it..." It's a unique way of getting the reader's attention!
I would recommend this book for any writer/author. We all need a place to store research, notes, plans, and ideas - and be able to organize them in a logical order and retrieve them with ease.

2.0 out of 5 stars a very poor book on Evernote 3 Sept. 2014
By Tony Sherman - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this particular tome the author lacks authority. It gives a very strong feel of some who has an OK middle of the road experience with Evernote. Then sat there and brainstormed some pretty obvious ideas, presented them without road testing them.

I had just finished another book on Evernote, and it was obviously far more credible that this pretty light-weight effort. My advise is give this a pass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly useful 27 July 2014
By Naima - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nancy has written a very useful book for those of us who thought they knew Evernote. Yes, you might know the mechanics of how to save a note or how to add a tag, but Nancy has gone beyond this to spell out how to exactly use Evernote in writer workflows.

I learned a few new ways of using this tool that I had not considered before, which I know will make my writing and research process more streamlined.

In particular, I really appreciated the sections on other tools that play nice with Evernote, and how to best leverage them as a writer and author.

Nancy writes in a clear, easy to follow style, each step flowing logically into the next, hitting that perfect balance between explaining without ambiguity and reading like a user manual. She keeps it interesting and relevant.

Highly recommended for Evernote newbies, and even more recommended for those of us who think they've "done" Evernote :)

Thanks Nancy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quickly Master Evernote components 5 Oct. 2014
By Jannyt - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a simply written guide, that allows one to quickly master the most important components of Evernote. I'd previously considered using Evernote, but assumed it would not be much different from pulling "stuff" into a blank Page. Wow--its features are amazing.
