I have my offline programs, and then my online programs. Offline, I use Microsoft Word, Scrivener, WordPad (yes, WordPad!), and even Notepad. I use a PC, obviously. Online, I use Google Docs, StackEdit, Writer (bighugelabs), and now Dabble. I love them all and they all have their purposes. I plan on finding and using more!
For me, Word is the #1 editing software. I’ve been using it since Windows 98, and I’m not going back. I eventually compile everything I write and edit there. Scrivener is for organization and construction of stories/projects. WordPad is for when I just have word vomit…which is often. Notepad is for notes and is immensely helpful for copying and pasting.
Google Docs is my online Word, StackEdit and Writer are for…many things? Hard to explain that one, but they help immensely for BBCoding and some CSS, which I do a lot of since I use World Anvil (though Notepad is really helpful, too). Whew, and lastly…Dabble. Dabble is an online Scrivener for me so teh second quaternity is complete!!!
Also, I must note, I like to move around depending on how I feel. Sometimes, typing in a different “PC writing environment” helps me focus on whatever project/thing I am working on at the time.
Did I mention Notepad is also good for writing things like this??
I hope that was somehow helpful! I feel like I just went on for no reason. I apologize if this is too long/wordy!
