"Good for First time writers like me"
MyNovel makes it pretty easy to navigate what you've written. It has an attractive interface, and a pretty good layout of things. It's actively being developed so you may see some improvements in coming months.
There are some minor irritations. You can't relocate the sections on your workspace, but the author tells us that he's working on improvements. This isn't a fancy text editor with a lot of formatting, but it's got a strong set of features.
I spent a good deal of time looking for some novel writing software that would fit my budget. Ywriter is a good free alternative, but it just didn't suit my tastes for simplicity. Other softwares retail for much more without being as easy to use or navigate. I like the Office 2007 style interface because it's what I'm used to--but it may not be to your liking. That's ok. For me, it's a good fit and I would recommend it to anyone who might be looking for an inexpensive writing tool. It installed with little difficulty on windows XP and Vista Ultimate.
