Novel writing software with a simple interface but powerful features. * The free Starter version has everything you need to start writing your novel but is limited to 5 character cards and 8 notes. (up to 2 projects) * Writing a novel is hard. You switch between drafts, outlines, character profiles, and notes. You lose time, you lose flow. You need something better but don’t want to wrestle with hundreds of features. Write Genre has a clean and easy interface, yet is more powerful than a word processor. Write Genre puts all your notes and profiles where you need them. So you can concentrate on what is most important: Writing your story. Write Genre does away with separate notes or outlines. Card based sidebars keep all your notes. Characters get their own. And the best part: Instant annotations. Just write a character's name in your story and it will be highlighted. Mouse-over a name to instantly see your note. Same goes for notes about places, things, anything you imagine. Furthermore Write Genre lets you set writing goals and track them. Write Genre shows you how many consecutive days you wrote, how many days you made your goals. Keeping up your streaks will motivate you to come back daily and finish your story. Outline your novel like a boss by linking notes with individual chapters. Those notes will appear in the top while writing. Always just a second away for easy reference. No more lost flow. FAQ Where are my files? Are they safe? Everything is saved locally under "Documents/Write Genre". Backup this folder externally from time to time to make sure your data is safe. Can Write Genre do fancy feature XZY? Probably not. Write Genre is made specifically to help you *write*. Once your novel is finished, we encourage you to export the text and do the final formatting/editing in a different application that is suited for that task.
