What is it? free story writing software

When designing a software program you break big problems (tasks) into little ones. Then you break those down into smaller and smaller problems until each can be tackled easily. Of course, you don’t want to lose sight of the overall project, so you give yourself explicit outlines for each piece of code. Then it’s just a case of coding each of the little pieces and hooking them together into the finished application.

Despite the mystical arty aura surrounding the process of fiction writing, at the end of the day most books can be written in a similar fashion: Break each novel into chapters, break each chapter into one or more scenes, and give each scene a goal, some conflict and an outcome.

A new software tool designed for authors of fictional stories is now available.

It’s called Papel (Spanish for ‘paper’) and runs under Windows, allowing you to write creatively and intuitively without logical tasks interfering with the flow of your ideas.

It’s small, it’s fast, and best of all it’s Freeware. Papel is not a ‘try it and see’ advert for a bigger version you have to pay for: it’s a complete and fully working application. It doesn’t require registration, and doesn’t contain nag screens, adverts, adware or spyware.

Complete details on the Papel website.
