What is yWriter?

First, and most important, yWriter is FREE to download and use!

Second, and still rather important, it's a word processor which breaks your novel into chapters and scenes. It will not write your novel for you, suggest plot ideas or perform creative tasks of any kind. It does help you keep track of your work, leaving your mind free to create.

yWriter5 is designed for Windows XP, Vista and beyond. Win98 and Win2k users should be able to use it, but those operating systems are unsupported. yWriter5 has been specially programmed to also run under Mono 2.2 or later on Linux. Tested and confirmed to work on Gentoo, but unfortunately it won't work with Ubuntu 9.04 because the Mono libraries supplied with the OS are too old.

Features:

· Organise your novel using a 'project'.
· Add files to the project, each containing a chapter.
· Add a summary to each file, showing the scenes in each chapter.
· Print out summary cards, showing the structure of your novel.
· Display the word count for every file in the project, along with a total.
· Saves a log file every day, showing words per file and the total. (Tracks your progress)
· Saves automatic backups at user-specified intervals.
· Allows multiple scenes within chapters
· Viewpoint character, goal, conflict and outcome fields for each scene.
· Storyboard view, a visual layout of your work.
· Re-order scenes within chapters.
· Move scenes from one chapter to another.
· Automatic chapter renumbering.
