yWriter5 Beta for Linux is 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. It was designed for novels, enterprising users have created their own translation files to customize the program to work with plays, non-fiction, and even sermons. The sermon translation is included under the Languages menu as 'Sermon5'.
