A good day (or evening) too all my readers out there! I know I have been very M.I.A. over the past week or so, and for that I apologize. After finally graduating from my university and moving back home, it took a lot of work trying to adjust to the back at home life and the job search and what not. So I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to my blog, reading, or reviewing! Though fear not! I have gotten back on my game, and am currently in the process of reading a few different books for review!
Sense I’ve been spending a lot of time on my laptop with my ever continuing job search process, I decided that I might as well really start writing my novel that I’ve had in planning for the past few months. About a week or so ago, I decided to download the free writing software, yWriter. I heard it was the best to use if you were writing on a Windows PC (which I am). Well after getting really bored with the simplicity of the program (it didn’t offer as much as I was hoping), I finally (as of today) downloaded the free 30 day trial of Scrivener for Windows.
Now, I have never been the type of writer that could just sit down and write out a story from start to finish. It’s just impossible. I am a very scratchy writer, with bits and pieces in about a billion different places. I’ve heard raving reviews about both of these programs, so of course I’m a little torn about which one to go with. While I like free, I do like some of the features that the paid program provides. Decisions, decisions.
So this is my question to you all, for those of you who have had experience with these programs, which would you recommend? I would really like to see what others have to say about them before I decide if I am going to go with the paid or free software! Leave your comments and I will forever be thankful!
