Hey. I was wondering. There are so many softwares and websites out there that help writers to work, but I haven’t found any honest comparision about them. Which software is the best to use for writing right now? So far I used only Word and Google Docs, and I’m curious if it worth to switch from those.
What I would look for:
- Sleek and simple design
- Easy to use
- Has some Git-like version control system
- Function that helps to outline the story, the characters, the setting
- Grammar and writing style help (like Grammarly or Hemingwayapp)
- Preferably has a web version, as I write from several computers (though it’s the least important part)
I know many people love Scrivener, and it has most of these features, but to me it looks too bloated.
What kind of software do you use for writing? Why do you like it more than the other alternatives?
