I am a Windows guy, and my comments are directed primarily towards Windows software, though my suspicions are this applies to the Mac, iOS, Android, and Chrome titles as well. I am not referring to software like MS Word or LibreOffice Writer, but instead those titles like yWriter, Scrivener, Atomic Scribbler, etc. (even most of the online subscription services! And even that scary monster, Liquid Story Binder.) My apologies to those who think my post is obvious, but when I read articles and posts about writing software, nobody comments on this, and the literally minded computer programmer in me is screaming to point this out! The good ones are exactly alike! And they are almost ALL good! It doesn't matter which one you select. All seem to be based on the hierarchical (Tree) text database model popular with note-taking apps and things like the Windows Registry. The only difference is the number of functions that the authors can cram into the software, and how large the amount of text they are willing to have the database manage, as a single record. I am convinced that once we realize this, it is practically impossible to find any of them 'too complicated to use'. They are all built around the idea that bits of text, some large, some small, can be placed into a hierarchical tree structure, and then moved around making the bits of text 'children' and 'parents' of each other with a drag and drop user interface. The key to getting the software you feel comfortable with is finding one with the features you will use. But don't be afraid of the software that has stuff you won't use if the rest of the program seems perfect for you, go ahead and get that software, and just don't use those features. I personally am still deciding between "Atomic Scribbler" and "Scrivener" for Windows. One claims to be a basic writing organizer, while the other seems to offer the author a 'soup to nuts' Novel project management system. But when it comes to basic functionality, they are identical. I'm still testing out which workflow works best for me. using a series of software titles for the planning and execution of my novel, or trying to do everything with one piece of software. I suspect, in the end, I would be happy with either one!
