    "I've been using this since he came out with it."

    May 27, 2012  |   By jkpriebe


    I've tried other writing programs, but have always came back to yWriter. I use it for building short stories by using each chapter as the title of the story and the scenes as scenes to build on the short story. I have used it for full novel writing - chapters & scenes. And I have use it to write Non-fiction, where each chapter is a main idea and the scenes I use to flush out the idea. Simon is always open for suggestions and if you find a bug. It really is one great piece of software.


    None that I have found.
