Best Writing Software

For a long time I’ve searched various sites, blogs, and forums looking for the best writing software.  What I’ve found is that since there are so many different types of software directed at the various forms of writing, there is no ‘perfect’ software.  Just a specific software that suits you and your writing.  

When looking for a software I was walking blind.  This led to downloading a lot of programs taking up space on my computer instead of providing me with a productive tool for writing.  So I stopped searching, and started thinking.  

What type of writing am I looking to perform?  

Basic Writing Programs

Straight Forward Writing: 

Story Writing

Screen/Script Writing:

Miscellaneous:

  • TheSage: Dictionary and Thesaurus  (Free) 
  • Tree Sheets: Note taking and spreadsheets (Free)
  • Kiwix: Resource Storage (Free)
  • WikidPad: Personal offline Wiki (Free)
  • EverNote: Research and Note Tool (Free)

Some of these programs are crossed over with other types of writing.  For example, Celtx can be used for both screenwriting, and novel writing.  What I suggest is looking through each program carefully, and deciding what would best suit you (and your computer) before downloading (or paying) a program.

I get quite a few questions about where I find my stock images that are used in live previews so here’s a list of my favourite (all can be found on the resources page). Most of these are free to use on personal and commercial projects but double check the licenses before use.

Creative Market : Free Gods of the Week / Spoon Graphics / Font Fabric / Lost and Taken / Dribble / Pixeden / Lost Type Co-Op / Freebiesbug / Codrops Tutorials 

Because everyone loves free things, here’s another quick resources post. There are another handful of sites out there but these are the ones I check out most often.
My favourite is the weekly offers from Creative Market. Sometimes you come across goodies you wouldn’t have otherwise downloaded. But act quick because they change/rotate every 7 days! A few people asked about subtle seamless backgrounds, and Pixeden has some of my favourites. Freebiesbug is actually more of a collective site (to make browsing easier) but has the occasional exclusives. And I’m sure every theme maker has already heard of Codrops but they deserve a huge mention.
