While it is clear that the developer of StoryBox was “inspired” by Scrivener, one thing that he has done that Keith Blount (Scriv’s developer) resisted, and that is making the application specifically for fiction. And I say thank goodness for Keith’s restraint. I have   quite understood the need so many developers have to cater to fiction writers, when 90% of all writing is non-fiction of some kind or another (okay, I pulled that number from out of thin air, but I believe it to be about right).*
