Glimpse of Top Ten Writers Software 2017

 writers software

       Hi...good readers, nice to meet you again on this page, now I give you about writers software the best for 2017, here they are below

1. FocusWriter

                  Block out all distractions with the best free Windows app for writers, Available for Linux, Windows and OS X, Focus Writer is designed to eliminate distractions so you can actually get on with the job of writing. To that effect it enables you to hide other apps, customize the way your text appears on screen and keep track of your progress. If you're feeling particularly old-school you can even add typewriter sound effects.  Focus Writer isn't for everyone – it looks pretty daft on a 27-inch monitor, for example – but it's a lovely little app with a very modest footprint that stops you keeping an eye on Twitter all day.

2. WriteMonkey

                 A text editor that cuts down on distractions, not features, We're big fans of Mark down, the text-editing language that enables you to format, annotate, classify and link as you type with the minimum of fuss, and the superb Write Monkey makes good use of it.  This free program delivers an incredibly stripped-down user interface that's considerably more powerful than it looks. There's an excellent out liner, automatic syntax highlighting and file organisation, and although markdown takes a bit of getting used to, you'll be very glad you made the effort. Once you've mastered Write Monkey, you can use it to create blog posts, print publications and anything else that needs words in it.

3. Celtx

           Ideal for solo writers or small teams who don't need the power of Final Draft. Hollywood scriptwriters swear by the famous Final Draft software, but if you're yet to sell a script then you might prefer an option that doesn't cost any money. Say hello to Celtex, an online script writing platform that's designed for small creative teams and includes a solo screenwriting package - all for the excellent price of zero. You don't get the extensive collaboration tools of the paid-for products, but for straight forward script writing it's well worth a look before considering a script writing tool that costs real money. 

4. LibreOffice Writer

             A fully-featured alternative to Microsoft Word that's completely free, LibreOffice is a free, open source alternative to Microsoft Office, and that means its Writer word processing app has many of the power features of Microsoft Word without the accompanying price tag. One of its most useful features is the LibreOffice Template Center, where you'll find templates for all kinds of content.

5. Sigil

          Create your own e-books and get them ready to publish online,  Many writing apps concentrate on print, but of course we're Kindle kids now and many authors publish direct to e-books. There are lots of ways to do that, including exporting from your favourite word processor, but Sigil is designed specifically for e-book editing; it isn't something that's been bolted onto an existing print-focused app. It offers WYSIWYG editing, enables you to check imported documents against the E P U B standard, and can sort out formatting and fix your editing. It's also expandable via plugins to add even more features.

6. Trelby

                   A powerful multi-platform screenwriting tool for budding playwrights, Trelby is available for Windows and for Linux, and it offers a very powerful screenwriting tool for free. It enforces standardized layouts, includes a character name database to avoid calling your hero Shooty Mc Shoot face, imports and exports in all the formats you could need, and has a built-in PDF generator.  You can compare different versions of the same script, create scene, location, character and dialog reports, and work in draft, WYSIWYG or full screen mode to suit the way you work. Don't even think about buying Final Draft without checking Trelby out first.

7. Scribus

            Write and design great-looking magazines and books without In Design, If your words' appearance is as important as their meaning, give Scribus a go: it's a free, highly-rated desktop publishing application for Linux, OS X and Windows that's capable of producing entire magazines (a little like a cut-down version of Adobe In Design). It's been kicking around - and regularly updated - since 2001, and while it's a little tricky to use at first it offers professional-grade publishing with layered, multi-page documents and good colour management support. We wouldn't want to make a 400-page book in it, but for shorter works it's very clever.

8. Hemingway

                   A streamlined text editor in your web browser - no need to download additional software, In addition to paid-for desktop software for Mac and Windows, Hemingway is available as a free web app. It's well worth bookmarking: it's designed to highlight long, complex sentences and common grammatical errors, and its use of colors makes it abundantly clear how clear or otherwise your text has become. It'll spot excessive use of unnecessary adverbs, and it can ensure that instances of the passive voice have been marked to alert you to their use. Hemingway is a really good tool for anyone who needs to communicate with maximum clarity. And we deliberately wrote this paragraph this way to annoy it.

9. Evernote

               Gather ideas, quotes and images together throughout the day to use later, Ever note isn't much cop as a writing app, but it's an absolutely superb research tool. We've used to organise all kinds of content including old photos of locations, snippets of overheard dialog, PDFs of scanned documents and all the little ideas that pop up when we're out and about. Don't forget about other note-taking apps either: Microsoft's free One Note is superb, and if you're a Mac/i OS fan Apple's Notes app is handy to have, especially when you can get Siri to add notes for you.

10. Freemind

                   Organize your ideas and defeat writer's block before it can strike, Here's another app for writers that isn't strictly for putting your words on the screen: Free mind is all about mind mapping, and it enables you to record all the leaps and bounds your imagination makes whether you're plotting a potboiler or trying to organize complex threads of an investigation. Free mind isn't something we'd necessarily recommend for mind mapping beginners – it looks a bit like a desktop publishing app having some kind of breakdown – but if you're an experienced intellectual explorer it's a lot tidier than a wall full of index cards and sticky notes.
