There are some extremely popular writing programs out there. Check on Facebook or in Google and you will most likely find them.
I have three writing programs on my computers. One was discounted when I completed NaNoWriMo. The program offers a free version to NaNoWriMo writers, which they can use for the month of November, so I understand its draw.
Nevertheless, there are two other software programs that I want to mention, especially for those of you planning to write your 50,000 words in November.
Let me say that I am not receiving any remuneration from either of these companies. This is just my personal opinion.
The first is WriteItNow! This is a very customizable program that offers a story board, colors of choice and spell checker among other things.
It costs $59.95 US for the download version, and $69.95 for CD.
The second is WriteWay Professional. It too offers story board, character charts and word count report.
It costs nothing. The creator has turned it over to the web and to writers, free.
I recommend either of these options, for first time writers, or those who have perhaps tried other software and given up because it was too complicated to use.
So check them out and see it you don’t find one or both to be of value as you write.
Of course, there is also Libre Office which is a free program too, for those who prefer plain word processing.
