Writing Software

When I started Nano this year it was with the purpose of trying out Scrivener and earning the discount if I wanted to buy it. I did earn the discount BTW. But along the way I didn't fall in love with Scrivener. It's good, it just doesn't match my writing style. Along the way I also found Liquid Story Binder. I really wanted to love that one too but it has its own way of doing things that I haven't been able to figure out. Its documentation is all of the reference type and very little (except for some Youtube videos) of the user type.

So, I'm back to Libre Office. As a general word process-office package I can make it do what I want. I think I'll be using two files per novel. One for outlining and background/character data and a second for the actual text of the novel. We'll see how that goes. Maybe in a month or two I'll be posting the results of that experiment.
