Editors' Review

Liquid Story Binder XE is a comprehensive program that allows users to organize every aspect of the novel-writing process. The program's many features are almost its downfall, however, as the number of capabilities is somewhat overwhelming.

The program's interface manages to be both sleek and awkward. Each of its various tools opens in a new window, and the program allows users to save their preferred combination of windows as a workspace. We can see how this would be beneficial, but we prefer tabs over multiple windows. We were also bothered by the program's default color scheme, which consists of white and gray type on a black background. Fortunately, this can be changed. As for features, this program has them in spades. And we had no idea how to use any of them without spending a good chunk of time in the Help file. Fortunately, this is well-written and contains a Quick Start Guide. Still, we felt overwhelmed by all of the features that the program offers. Chapters, builders, dossiers, journals, outlines, mindmaps...phew! And that's just the tip of the iceberg! We loved that the program allows users to create playlists of songs to write to and galleries of inspirational images. We love a lot of the possibilities for organization and novel structuring that this program offers, and users who are prepared to devote some time to learning the program's ins and outs may be richly rewarded. But other users may find that the program is just too much.

Liquid Story Binder XE has a 30-day trial period, and it installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
