The many ways not to write..your next novel

The many ways not to write..your next novel

 

Well it’s time to start writing again…a story is forming and my lead character is getting restless.  
It’s been 9 months since I wrote the last book of the series, I had decided to take a fork in the road and start another series in a complete different genre.
But now I’m back and ready to write book 3 of my Hannigan series.. But first I have to do something….

I have to make sure I’m using the perfect software for me and the job…Ok OK I know you don’t need software, a pen and paper can work just fine..ask anyone.

But I like the chase…the thrill..the download or maybe an online account which may or may not open the door for me to write that Perfect Novel or Novelette ..

First off I already own the best…the second best…the third..on….and on…

So what could be better then Scrivener ? or Writeway Pro or Writeitnow or Ywriter5 or Quoll Writer or Storybox2…Ostorybook 4.10…Plume Creator.. on and on

Maybe it’s a Online program..like Fastpencil or Litlift..Hiveworld…Novlr…Truenovelist …Yarney or mywriting spot…writeitPro..

Or maybe it’s a in between writing program(Computer/Cloud?
Bibisco or Shaxpir  or….

And then we get into the distraction free programs… Your lucky I won’t get into those because I’m already distracted with finding the perfect software so I can get started writing…
Conclusion….Just Write!!!

But to make this a little more fun…

I like Scrivener but something keeps me from loving it…so I look...

Ywriter5 (FREE) is great.... but ugly…jezzzzzz give me some colors….

Writeitnow4 …tone down the colors I feel like I’m at Disney Land

WritewayPro… I like it..

Storybox 2   too much is going on …the screen is very busy

Quoll Writer.(FREE)… word count is to far away… Us writers like to know our counts…WAIT, I found you can have up to 3 panes open and one can be static's which includes Word Count-Readability and more... I'm liking this one more and more...!!

Ostorybook 4.10 (FREE)  Juror is still out…but looks promising

Plume Creator(Free)   I like it… simple but functional..I will write with it soon.

Of the online programs(FREE)…I like  Fastpencil and Truenovelist the most.

In betweens….Bibisco…is the best  Shaxpir is OK  both are FREE

The winner is…

Scrivener Of course…. I always seem to finish with it after starting with another program… 

This time I’m going to start with Bibisco because it has a interactive interface..what I mean about that is it ask questions about everything..which helps you map out your writing better…   and it’s FREE…
