5 writing apps to help you organize your novel

Updated: Aug 30

As writers, we can all agree that organizing your book can be a lengthy and strenuous process. Thankfully, there are smart writing apps available that help you organize your novel.


When writing a book the only thing we should worry about at this time is just to write and of course, not losing that writing momentum. If you are manually organizing the sequence of your story with paper notes or getting lost in an array of thousands of documents and folders on your computer just to organize all your notes from multiple writing projects- this blog is for you!


In this blog, you will find our 5 writing apps picks to help you make your life and writing process easier. The only thing you will need to do is to let those creative juices flow and leave the rest to technology.


Scrivener

If you are looking for a way to organize, tag, and compile information in a beautiful flow of docs, then this app is for you. It has a binder feature that will make your life easier and it's visually friendly. To create a document you can start by just selecting one of its multiple templates depending on the type of project you are working on or just import your own file. Then start tagging color codes on your docs. Not enough with this? Another feature that we've found important for writers is the writing goals one. This app will help you force yourself to sit and write and achieve your goal, so start your day by setting how many words per day you would like to achieve!


Papyrus Author

Looking for simplicity and basics? Then Papyrus Author is the one. This app is mainly a word processor and extra features are on its paid version, but if you just need an easier way to format your book and help you rearrange chapters from your novel this one is enough.


Ulysses

Storing information, sharing it on platforms, or just having it handy could be a problem if you are not on your computer or on the same device always. Ulysses can synchronize all your data in the cloud. In addition to this, it is integrated with platforms such as Medium and WordPress so you can upload and publish whenever you are ready from wherever you are.


AutoCrit

AutoCrit is the perfect match for novelists and fiction writers. The app not only has a dynamic dashboard giving you main insights on your writing process and its quality but also genre-specific feedback in your writing. Also is that kind of critic that will highlight your bad habits on repetitive words or phrases, give you alternatives and make you happy.


Prowriting Aid

This one is your editorial and grammar guru. It is known as one of the best grammar checkers among writing apps, and not only that, it will give you some style feedback and let you integrate it with other writing apps or software you have. So if you are ready to make your first round of spelling of your novel this tool is the best add-on to your main software.


All of these programs will help you to keep you motivated, organized and get you prepared in your writing process. Find your perfect match and share with us your choice.
