We're going to try to do more spotlighting of member websites.  This is a great one for writers, and has a special section on software for writing.  If you are interested in the business end of writing, this is a must visit site.

Becoming a Writer Seriously: Tools and Trade Secrets for Aspiring Writers

Emphasis will be on detailed descriptions of HOW writers can utilize available TOOLS to best advantage. Over time, the blog will also provide an overview of the various pieces comprising the BUSINESS side of writing. Our aim is to become an indispensible resource & reference on the web for writers.

Hello Mouser,

I'm just starting to get started writing my "novel" if you know what I mean.  I've jotted down some notes and other data regarding the background and the matrix, that I will as a foundation to base the novel 's plot upon.  I have been searching for a good and simple-to-use, software program.  I had considered using the " Literary Machine", but even though I am not a novice at writing in general nor a beginner at using a PC, I found it to be unnecessarily difficult to understand - much less to use.  The Page 4 and or Rough Draft seem to be just what was needed for me to flesh out my manuscript.  Thanks for the tips and the links to the software.

"Keep on, keeping on,"

Deberett, there are several other programs, designed especially for novelists, that you may wish to check out.  I'll be reviewing all of them in detail in coming weeks, but a Google search will take you immediately to their homepages.
