Writing software comes down to a matter of choice.
- Microsoft Word
- Google Docs
(Based on OpenOffice)
I tend to write linear, and am a Word girl. Others love Google Docs, and many of my writing friends swear by Scrivener.
I have Scrivener, but prefer the simplicity of opening a document and going. If you’re doing something complex or need help with organizing, Scrivener is super affordable and a great program worth checking out.
I’ve used it, but always go back to my basics. What can I say, I like the simple life! This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission on qualifying purchases.
