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.
