Spacejock offers free software that perform various tasks. Relevant to this blog’s focus are:
yWriter5- a writing programs similar to Scrivener with a few less bells and whistles; and
Sonar3- a tracking system for who you have sent what stories and what was the response. Similar to Duotrope, except your information is not available to others. Which means you can’t learn from other people’s experiences, either.
Simon Haynes, the creator, proudly claims his software is virus free and walks you through how to ensure it is.
May the muse be with you,
