Scrivener! I am incredibly excited about this software, it’s fantastic, I have never felt so incredibly organized with my writing. You can edit multiple documents, there’s a cork board feature, which is replacing my storyboard-ing, I love the index cards PLUS all my research is in one place. I am not being paid by this company, I just am excited to find software that is working for me and I hope it might help others.
Other amazing features, when done your work, you can compile and export for ebooks or Kindle. You can share your work via iBooks or Amazon, or for reading on any e-reader. Yay!
