Choose the best software to help you write your next book
Scrivener or Ulysses?
I researched carefully. I looked (only briefly) at Scrivener known as the bedrock authors and script writers software tool. I found it too difficult to get close to and overwhelming with its detail.
The app I found most beautiful to use and that I have been using for the last few months is Ulysses. I write books, blogs and stories and found that this is a great tool. It offers just what I had been hoping for.
Easy to use software for writers
First of all, it’s an easy interface, modern design, and distraction free. It can do plenty of tasks on it and yet all the nuts and bolt details of its capability is kept neatly out of your way while you focus on writing.
There is a good choice of colours and palettes and different themes. You can use it fully just using a keyboard and not needing a mouse at all.
Files all together for many projects
I like the way all of my writing sits in one place, and I can just go in and retrieve what I need. Chapters can be moved around, writing easily re assembled and I can use the search function across files. There is a single library for all texts, with the chance to set up a filing system and hierarchies for files. It automatically backs up the entire text library.
Keep track of daily word count target
One of my favourite features is the writing goals feature. You can set a word goal per day or by project. It helps you stay focused and on track and keeps you in the know about how well you’re doing on your project.
Syncs easily with other devices
The material syncs across different devices and you can export straight to your blog.
you can download it from the App Store and there is a trial plan for free cheque it out you won’t be disappointed as my favourite app of the moment.
