Novel editing software – there is such a thing.
I’ve had some folks ask me some “technical” stuff about the writing process. They want to know if I’m using MS Word or something else to do my writing.
The answer is, I began with Word but became frustrated very quickly. Cut and paste is not good for chapters, scenes, etc. because it becomes increasingly difficult to find the right location for your “cut” text as the manuscript gets longer.
So I went looking for software that was custom built for writers.
I found what seems to be the industry standard – Scrivener – but it cost $40. Yeah, I know, it’s not very much… but I like to go FREE if at all possible. So I kept looking.
That’s when I found yWriter – a FREE novel editing software designed for novel writers. It’s from www.spacejock.com. Below is a quick video I shot to show you the program and how I used it. It’s really an amazing tool that I couldn’t do without.
