This topic may have been addressed in another thread so please let me know if it has. I have just purchased a new Mac and would like to find a good software package to use to write on. Can anyone recommend anything? Thanks!

Many Mac user go with Scrivener. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scri ... atform=mac

I just use a word processor, but if you're an outliner, a plotter, a planner, etc., Scrivener will probably work well for you, and it's pretty cheap.

I like LIbreOffice okay. It's like a free version of Word and goes across all platforms.

I've used a few of them. They look aimed at those who outline their work. I don't. So I stick with MS Word and OneNote for side information.

YWriter -
StorYBook -
Writer's Café -

Those are all free/Open Source. Scrivener is more proprietary. They all suited my needs. Just not my style.

I like yWriter. It's free and breaks your novel up into chapters, has sections for character profiles, notes, etc.

For Mac I use Scrivener, which is good, but I actually like Storyist better, for the character pictures area..They both seem to work as well as the other for the typing. Storyist also let's you use a microphone for speech to text and it is built in.
