I was just curious if anyone besides me uses writing software. I use a program called WriteItNow for novels, and I absolutely love it. It has different sections that let me keep track of character names, ages, and quirks. There are also tabs to write notes. It has some other fancy features I don't use, but I love the ones I do.
I know all you really need is Microsoft Word, but I find it difficult to go back and forth between documents to look at my chapters. With this I'm just a few clicks away from another chapter or all my character info. It's well worth it for the $40.00 bucks I spent. It also has a place to keep track of queries - if I ever actually send any out:)
Does anyone use writing software? Do you think it gets in the way instead? How does everyone keep track of their submissions?
