Scrivener for Windows.
Ever since my first NaNoWriMo when I first discovered this novel writing program, I was intrigued with all its features. Only problem - it came in a Mac version and sadly, I'm pretty PC minded. Now at the time, they were testing a beta program for Windows, but no real timeline for the finished product was set.
I was bummed. The whole concept of the novel writing software made me drool : )
As I was blog-hopping one day, I came across someone talking about the Scrivener for Windows and how much they loved it. Of course I scurried over to the Literature and Latte site to confirm the rumors...and it was true!
There are many novel writing programs on the market and I have test driven a few of them. I wanted the Scrivener program because it seemed to pull together all the tools I use to create with. Though it looks like the run-of-the-mill program, it has quite a depth of features I'm still discovering. L&L offers easy to follow tutorials and an in-depth instruction manual so even tech-challenged writers such as I can be up and running in a few hours.
- I love the corkboard feature that lets me scribble down quick thoughts, label them by color associated with the character, and then I have the ability to move them around to remind myself what details I need to stick in where in my novel.
- Moving scenes within the novel is as easy as click and drag
- I can store photos, links, idea sketches per character
- I can create templates in a data base
