Once I’m finally sitting and concentrating(!), I use WriteWayPro for my first draft (the outine feature helps me quite a lot as I move ahead; I can see the story beginning to shape up clearly). Sadly the WriteWayPro company is no more, so their support is gone. I’m okay with that though, since I’ve been using it for so long. I may look for another program in the future. Must admit, I tried Scrivener, but so overwhelmed by it – so my current program is it for me right now.
Then – I move it all to Microsoft Word to print, and Then – I edit it with my red pen. Yep – a red pen. I make the changes in Word and keep at it (reprinting sometimes if needed) until it’s done.
Evernote is always on stand by along with miscellaneous post-it notes and envelopes for notes and ideas. And last but not least, headphones tuned to either white or brown noise, Coffitivity, or Classic R&B, yacht rock, 40s music, or classic rock, depending on my mood.
