If you are like me, you prefer to flesh out your first drafts without any sort of planning, overhead, or even sense of direction about which way your novel will turn the next day. For that, I prefer to use Microsoft Word or some comparable word processor because it allows me to proceed with insane pace and reckless writing.

But for the editing process, there is naturally a good bit of overhead and hindsight planning that needs to take place, and YWriter is the best software I have used to handle that minutia. It has detailed scene breakdowns, POV tracking, timelines, storyboarding, and a whole ton of other features.
