As I am sure many of you know, National Novel Writing Month starts tomorrow! I will be taking part in the challenge of writing 50,000 words in the month of November and I wanted to let you all know about some great online software that is free to use in the month of November in honor of NaNoWriMo.
Novlr is a web-based application where you can store and write your novel. You can write both online and offline, on multiple computers without the need to download software. The statistics provided by Novlr are excellent; it shows your current word count while also tracking how many words you physically wrote in that session (i.e., how many words you wrote and then edited or deleted). It is a lovely, seamless platform to write on and during my first two-week trial I really enjoyed the look and feel of the system. However, when it came to actually paying for the software, I decided to give it a miss as I found that server issues regularly prevented me from logging on and writing. As annoying as those server issues were I couldn’t resist giving Novlr another go because in my opinion as a writing and statistics geek extraordinaire it is the best the web has to offer!
If you fancy having a go at NaNoWriMo and have been looking for some novel writing software don’t miss your chance to try out Novlr. P.s. it is worth mentioning I have not been asked to write this by Novlr and this purely my own opinion.
