Getting or discovering new writing software is fun, but it can be frustrating to find what would work best for you. Your budget, writing method, and preferred medium should all be taken into account to figure out what you need to move forward. I’ve put together a flowchart to help anyone who’s looking for an upgrade to aid in novel writing. I haven’t included everything–this is the first flowchart I’ve ever made, and organizing it was a bit of a pain. But these are all options that I’ve used and love, and even if you’re only a casual writer, I have to recommend upgrading your experience!
