As a nifty program full of cool tools, Writer's Cafe Portable helps you improve and organize your writing. Its layout won't win any design awards, but it's so packed full of neat and fun features that you won't really care. If you need help finishing or starting that novel you've been talking about for years, this is the program you want.

Since it operates as a portable application, you can install it to a USB drive just as easily as on your computer. Once you're inside the program, it offers tons of cool features to help you write. There are storyline organizers, character notebooks, and even a full word processor. If you're still in the inspiration stage, there are writing prompts, little notes of encouragement, and famous sayings from writers littered throughout the program. Writer's Cafe Portable operates like your desktop. That means you can reorganize and rearrange your program icons however you want. Some of the features require you to register the software. However, most of these aren't necessary unless you're a serious professional.

If you're just getting started in the wide world of writing, this is a neat tool to have. It packs so many interesting programs into one package that you're sure to find something that can help you write. Since Writer's Cafe Portable lives up to the portable in its name, it's perfect for coffee shop and traveling writers, too.
