    I do have very good grammer, punctuation and spelling, but I've always been confused where the ' goes with some words.
    The whole 'ownership' thing does my head in. -.^
    So I'm going to check this software out, and if it means I have to transfer my whole novel of word to the software, I might call it quits. But I'll look at it anyway and see if I like it or not first ;]

    This is a very helpful program, although it took me a few minutes of playing around to get the hang of it.

    It doesn't, but they have something like it for Mac, and can be found at the top of this page.

    Bummer. I'd use Scrivener if it didn't cost so much money. :(

    Jers Novel Writer is similar, plus it's free and has a Mac version (I have it on my laptop, though I never use it). I don't remember where I downloaded it from, but you can probably just google it.

    I use yWriter. It's brilliant, but does need a bit of getting used to in order to really see the beauty of it. It helps if you want to work on one chapter that is waaay ahead but don't want to get mixed up in the process. It keeps track of your characters, scenes, locations, etc. Though, personally, I don't use any other options than the scenes and characters (too lazy to always put the current locations).

    FocusWriter is great if you get distracted easily. You can customize the setting, make it so when you type is sounds like the clicks on a typewriter, and set time-frames and word goals.

    I have a perpetual fear of using any writing software other than Microsoft Word, no matter how cool it sounds, simply because I'm terrified of it losing my work XD
