First, I'd like to thank everyone who stops by and comments throughout the A-Z Challenge. There is nothing more thrilling than having comments. My posts this month are all about things that make me happy in life. Technology is one of those subjects.
Earlier I told you that I kept all my research in Evernote. Research begins while I am dreaming up the story as well as during the writing stages. For writing my rough draft, I use an app called Manuscript on my iPad. This is where I create chapter outlines, make character cards on virtual index cards, and write rough drafts. I don't mind having these items in separate places, but some will protest that it is inefficient. When I am ready to create a final manuscript of my work and move on to editing, I export from Manuscript. I prefer using Word on my laptop with the markup functionality you have there. I also print out a novel for editing with margin space for written notes.
My three writing tools are Evernote, Manuscript, and Word.

I know writers use Scrivener and other novel writing software. What do you use?
