Hi everyone (boy am I coming to this thread late)
I've tried many of the suggested programs at one time
or another plus some others- my main criteria are
useful and free. (except for that one time but I'll get
My mainstay for writing is roughdraft
It's basic but does have tabbed browsing which is a must, a decent spell
checker, and word counter. There are other features like a thesaurus
plug-in, and the ability do a few different formats including Script style.
It's an older program so no updates. I highly recommend it.
For jotting down ideas, plot flow, etc, I use freewriter
It's a more fully developed program which I actually paid for a pro version
but I ended up not liking it overall. What I did like was the post-it-note
feature which can be arranged per chapter, etc. Now I use the free version
for that feature only. It's indispensable!
Those together make up my current *all free* writing suite.
