Scrivener Writing Software | Mac OS X | Windows
Your complete writing studio
Writing a novel, research paper, script or any long-form text involves more than hammering away at the keys until you’re done. Collecting research, ordering fragmented ideas, shuffling index cards in search of that elusive structure - most writing software is fired up only after much of the hard work is over. Enter Scrivener: a word processor and project management tool that stays with you from that first, unformed idea all the way through to the final draft. Outline and structure your ideas, take notes, view research alongside your writing and compose the constituent pieces of your text in isolation or in context. Scrivener won't tell you how to write - it just makes all the tools you have scattered around your desk available in one application.

Those currently using Scrivener include:
Novelists, Short-Story Writers, Screenwriters, Playwrights, Comedians, Lawyers, Journalists, Lecturers, Academics and Students, Biographers and Memoirists, Business and Technical Writers, Comics and Graphic Novel Writers, Translators, etc.
