    Novel Writing Software for Linux - FOUND!

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was complaining several months ago because I couldn't find writing software for linux, and now I found one!!!

    It's still in development and several features need to be added still, but it's only a matter of time. I love the layout, I love the way it's set up, sort of like WriteWayPro and yWriter combined.

    Here's the link to the homepage:

    http://www.wwmkr.com/

    It's called Writer's World Maker.

    I uploaded a screenshot too.

    Ummm... Is it like OpenOffice or more like Scribus?

    Looks to me as though it's more for a screenplay type document.

    I think I saw several software of this type before actually. But I don't remember the names.

    I found this one a while back: http://www.writerscafe.co.uk/

    It costs money though, and is not open source, but it has a lot of potential if you (unlike me) aren't to lazy to figure it out.

    Writer's Cafe is more for organizing a novel, though it claims you can write one.

    This one has a better layout and it's free. I like having a chapter and scene format so that I can move scenes around and rearrange chapters and all of that.

    This program still needs several more features before it's as good as other software for Windows, but it's getting there.

    you could try LyX -- it's pretty much perfect for something like a novel.

    It takes a little bit of getting used to, but it's wonderful
