yWriter 4

Fiction writers can always benefit from useful tools that are free. Keeping track of story lines and characters can sometimes become a hectic task, but it is not an impossible one. yWriter 4 can definitely handle its own among other free applications and some paid ones as well. If you are serious about writing and don’t want a flashy user interface, then this application is what you need. It will conveniently help you to keep track of plot lines, characters, and drafts. All of your information will be organized in a simple form.

To get started, just simply download and install the application. You’ll be able to move forward in your writing via project levels. Import your existing novels in accordance with the yWriter’s format. If your work is in PDF or .doc format, then yWriter is not capable of importing it. Despite this little set back, it is still an excellent program overall. Your chapters will be displayed in spreadsheet form for viewing. After importing all of your chapters and scenes into yWriter, you’ll then be able to add notes, descriptions, or other details.

Looking at the yWriter format will remind you of the classic Windows style. It is not flashy, but it still gets the job done. In order to successfully complete your novel, most writers do not need a fancy interface filled with bells and whistles. The best part of using this program is that it is simple to use. Once you start working with it, you’ll notice how fast you completed your novel.

    I downloaded the ywriter 4 several times. I tried to follow the directives, but I can’t type on the page? Why?
