Default Novel Writing Software yWriter

Source: Novel Writing Software yWriter

Novel writers have a large pool of word processing tools at their disposal to write their novels. This ranges from basic programs like Notepad to Microsoft Office or Open Office. There are however some - lesser known - novel writing software programs available that have been designed with that purpose in mind getting rid of any additional functions and features that novel writers do not need.
The novel writing software yWriter (via Barry) is such an application. It is compatible with both the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating system. The software divided novels into chapters and scenes which are all accessible from the same interface. Each chapter contains one or multiple scenes that can be filled with the actual text but also information like characters, locations, items, scene notes and goals.
Each chapter is displayed in the sidebar with its title and additional information. A click on a chapter will load the scenes into the main window that is immediately revealing important information to the author like the number of words, viewpoint or status. All the additional information that make up a scene like locations and characters are also listed in that overview.
