I am looking at a tool called Scrivener which is a writer software suite that not only formats but allows for plot and scene development. There is another one called Celtx. I have also given Dragon voice recording to text software a very brief survey.

Does anyone use a writing specific suite of software to help tame these beasts we call or writing?  Any recommendations or cautionary tales?

To be clear, I am in no way associated with any of the above products other than mulling them over to assist my writing development.

I really love Omniwriter! I use the free version, which is not the newest but still pretty good. I don't know how the newest one is, because it costs some money. I don't think much tho: Here you go

I really didn't get all that far before deciding it wasn't for me. My problem isn't typing it all out, it is design work where I need the boost (And time of course. I've none of it in which to write.). Dragon doesn't do much in that department.

"Thanks guys. My main hangups were from reviews saying that the bag fell apart after a few weeks and left stains on clothing. After my post, work told me that I'd be getting a new laptop. I may hold off to make sure that it's not too big."
