Greetings, fellow Oorteans!
I have just begun using a shareware application for creative writing called Scrivener. I found it on Version Tracker last Sunday, and I registered it this morning. It's that good. I evaluated two other shareware apps, but this one is superior. The tutorial and help files are the most detailed I've ever seen with shareware, and the home website http://www.literatureandlatte.com/ is wide and deep. Forums to discuss the ware and the craft in general.
