Every writer has her/his own system for staying organized. Some writers prefer the old-fashioned pen-and-legal-pad method, while others prefer a more elaborate system to keep various projects, complex plots, and characters straight. Whatever your needs or your particular system, we’ve found a few tools on the Internet that you may want to investigate, including software for a wide variety of uses. Let us know if you have any feedback on these or other writing tools that work for you.

Ashleywilde Publishers. Software to help generate solid story plots and outlines.

Autobiography Software Program. For family heirloom documents.

Backpackit.com. An online account where you can keep your to-do lists, notes, and ideas organized.

    I’ve been using LifeJournal for years and I find it to be the best journal software around. It’s innovative, fun, and makes you want to journal. Keeps you coming back to write more. Easy to use and great to come back to when I’m not sure what to write about. Has a whole range of features that makes you just start typing and not just the same stuff over and over. It is my favorite writing program. I’m pretty sure that they have a demo you can test. http://www.lifejournal.com. check it out.
