If we're talking fiction, I've fallen in love with a new program called The Novel Factory. I've found this really useful for guiding the structure of a book. While using the trial (which is only seven days) I took one of the chapters from my WIP and worked it using the program; the "chapter" could now stand as the basis for a novel in itself and will need to be considerably pared down to slot into the original WIP.

Different software tends to be great at different things. I still like Word for basic outlining (using the Outline View).

I'll look at The Novel Factory. I'm a nerd for novel-writing programs because they fascinate me.

Thank you!
