Writing Software

  • What is your preferred writing software?

    I use Word because I am familiar with the program. 

    I lucked into a Word template for formatting my novels early in my writing career and I am able to effectively use the template to format my work. There are also a number of instructional videos and guides available if I am stuck on a formatting issue so I can learn how to fix problems myself.

    I know there are other writing programs, but the cost of the software and the sharp learning curve necessary to use the program effectively makes it difficult for me to buy into the program.

    What software do you use?

    Why is this your preferred software?

    Danielle Ross I mainly use Word, but have gotten Scrivener. I've been playing with it, but still haven't figured everything out.

    Dawn R. Schuldenfrei I like Scrivener. It took some time and swearing to get used to it, but now I like it a lot.
