Papel is a great free-form tool for creative writers. It runs on the Windows platform, and allows you to write intuitively without logical tasks interfering with the flow of your ideas. Papel’s aim, unlike most other software, is simplicity and organization. It’s designed especially for keeping track of your brilliant ideas, thoughts, and snippets from first draft to last.

  • Mouse grab - drag in the workspace area to move around your work quickly and easily
  • Individual icons for each piece of work eg., Chapter, Scene, Character, Plot Outline, Dialogue, etc.
  • Customisable Themes, with user defined papel types, icons, text and window colours
  • Simple papel naming system, with automatic file saving under the given name
  • Find and Replace, Word Count, Spell Check & Thesaurus in editor
  • Drag-and-drop to auto-create papels and auto-import text files
  • Global main type Word Count, and Find & Compile for project-wide searches
  • Timed Auto-save when editing text content
  • Back-up feature, with projects saved by name, date and time
  • Multi-size workspace area, with up to eight times your screen size

I've been using this software since I was 17. It is simply AWESOME if you want to get into creative writing. It doesn't have the resources you would expect from a regular text editor, like bold and italic for example, but that's precisely what makes this software so great. You write on it just like you would write on real paper. And it has resources that allow you to split your story into chapters, notes, outlines, characters... Perfect.

Pros
  • Pretty much everything.
Cons
  • I don't think anything is missing. It is a little bit complicated to get the hang of it at first, but when you do, you realize how awesome the software is.
