If you’ve made it this far without finding the perfect writing software for your needs, here’s your last chance before you have to go code your own. This is my little “holding pen” for potentially useful software programs and other tools that I discovered recently and haven’t had time to investigate in enough detail to categorize properly. Most are probably some variation on a word processor or a writing project management software, but there may be a few unique programs of other sorts mixed in.
I keep this page published instead of private because I’m pretty sure there are some programs listed here that some writers could find extremely useful. I don’t know which ones they are, but I like to give them all a sporting chance.
If you have experience with any of these programs, feel free to comment below and share what you think of them!
