Free Novel Writing Software?

Why Wavemaker novel planning & writing software is free.

I started out building wavemaker as I wanted software that suited me. Don’t get me wrong, there are some nice programs out there. Scrivener is really good, Atomic Scribbler is nice, Manuskript is decent  and so on ….. 

But none of them are cross platform. Wavemaker  works on virtually anything and syncs between devices easily so you can write at your desk, or while walking the dog (Yes, I actually do this, dictating into wavemaker on my phone while out and about)

But Why Free??

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take your money if you insist šŸ˜‰
(You can become a patron at the  Wavemaker Patreon)

But my aim is to create some great free novel writing software, for ME. 
The fact you get to use it is a bonus. Also I really ENJOY creating stuff like this. If ever I get enough Patrons to support me I’ll go full time at this, but until then I have to squeeze it into my spare time.

I’m also  Open sourcing the code for the older versions, and will do with the current version when I have all the bit’s I want done – I want to do this as others will be able to help by adding features, fixing bugs and making it better. 

This is what makes Wavemaker truly unique. It’s goals are to be as inclusive as possible, as useful as possible and as easy to use as possible.

If you want to try out this amazing Free Novel Writing Software then give it a go. There’s nothing to lose šŸ™‚ https://wavemaker.cards

  1. How does this work? Is there a guide? Iā€™m an aspiring author and always struggling with how to carry on my writing without always sitting inform on my Mac.

  2. Your software seems great, kudos for making it free. I think if you were to include one thing it would outstrip all of the others – a timeline-tool that’s actually good, because there is none out there (and I have looked far and wide)…

    By that, I mean a tool where you can zoom in on an timeline-axis and pin events (or other things like photos and notes) to it, and have them keep both it’s position and viewable size even if you zoom the timeline out (which could be solved by having them in different heights or shrinking them to small flags with on-mouse-over popup windows for the content).

    I’m only saying this because I’m not very good at programming yet and it would be cool if someone did it, being able to combine it with a writing tool would be nothing short of fantastic. It doesn’t seem really difficult to make tbh, but all of the tools I’ve seen have a static model of the timeline (zoom out time-wise and all of the info pinned to it is also zoomed out, rather than vectorised). Feel free to ask me more if you find the idea interesting.
