Scrivener sounded a lot like my writing process, but I tried to use it with a completed draft I was rewriting, and it was just too much work. I’ll eventually try it again with a brand new story.

@febe moss – I tried Dragon Naturallyspeaking and wasn’t impressed, but I know lots of published authors use it. Kristin Cashore (author of Graceling, Fire, & Bitterblue) seems to really like it, while Justine Larbalestier (author of Liar, How To Ditch Your Fairy, & the Magic or Madness series) REALLY isn’t having fun with it. Maybe it works better if your accent is very region-specific. I’ve lived on two continents, and so has Justine, so that might be part of the problem…
