    Awesome podcast! Your preparations for NaNoWriMo were really interesting to hear about, I particularly like the word percentage competition you have with your son.

    My application of choice is yWriter5. I like how it encourages you to write in scenes and has other tools attached to keep track of which scene goes where and where your characters are in relation to what you’re writing at the time. It’s completely free and also comes in a portable version so you can always carry your work with you if you need to move between computers. I tend not to use online backups, so my backup app of choice is IceMirror - another freeare app, very easy to set up and quick to use.

    I’ll certainly be checking back for your next podcast, and best of luck for NaNoWriMo 2010.

    Thank, Sam!

    I already pre-corded my next podcast because I was having some issues with the phone dying on me, but I’ll be sure to mention your suggestions and link to the relevant sites on the next one after that. We can certainly use all the help we can get, and I appreciate the suggestions.

    I’ve heard of Ywriter but not IceMirror. I’ll look into them both. Thanks again for the kind words and for your time. :)
