Even if you don't write with it, I still strongly suggest an investment in MS Office. Some versions aren't very expensive, it's a tax write off, and it's still far and away the industry standard. Not just Word, but there is no better e-mail tool in today's world than MS Outlook.

However you write your first draft, when it's time to do a final draft, or time to submit an electronic version, or time to work in real time with an editor after you sell a novel, Word and Outlook do it all. It good to have the same tools an agent or editor uses.

I'm at the point now where I can't imagine anyone using anything other than Scrivener. Once you get over the slight learning curve it makes export your work to any publishable format a matter of clicking a couple buttons.

Also, the full screen mode really helps with productivity.

I've heard good things about Scrivener. Also, I've been meaning to try FocusWriter (http://gottcode.org/focuswriter/). I've heard good things about Q10, as well.

I own Power Structure - bought years ago - expensive but at that time Scrivner not available for Windows. Would I buy it again - probably not, although it is a great programme.

You can download a demo of Scriviner - looks great but there is a high (to me) learning curve. I'm old-school - if something is working for you why change and I'm not a fan of change - I'm still using Word 2003. :)

Knucklehead Computers has "Novel Revision" software but I had problems with Access Runtime and error messages. For the price and features I certainly would have purchased it. Also the support is fantastic
