I use Microsoft Word and Final Draft. Pretty standard. I do wish I knew one that combined scriptwriting and word processing well. But I'm also just curious. Any favorites?
  1. Celtx
    Free screenwriting software for people interested in testing the waters before committing to the $$$ for Final Draft.

  2. Scrivener!
    I've written novels without it. But I don't ever want to again. Also has a screenwriting template that seems good.

    It's simple and clean cut. I haven't tested all of its abilities yet, but so far it's been pretty great.

  4. I've heard good things about Adobe Story

    Saw Rian Johnson uses it and I was hooked.

  6. Google Docs
    You can take them everywhere, they sync, and they'll survive the inevitable computer crash! Also, hyperlinking is much less clunky.

  8. Dragon Naturally Speaking. Why type when you can talk? You can use it with any software where you would normally be typing, and even make lists with it in this app, because that little mic to the left of the space bar is Apple's licensed version of Dragon. MSFT Office also has built in voice recognition software, but not of the same quality.

    New, web-based, super-clean format. I'm using it to organize all the random stuff in my Google Docs into themed collections so I can figure out what to do with it all, though as you may have guessed from the name, it's aimed at people writing novels. It can by synced to Docs and Dropbox as well.
