Papel is a free word processing program especially developed for writers and authors.
It's a little complicated to get started with the Papel software, but once you do, it comes easily. Your first step should be to save a project. Then you right click to create papels, the individual pieces that make up your stories. These can be elements such as characters, plot outlines, dialogues or scenes, to name just a few. When you create a papel, the program will assign an icon and display it in the main interface.
To edit a papel, double click, or right-click for more options. You can move the icons around the Papel interface freely, which makes it easy to see how they relate to each other. As a word processor, Papel also works well. You'll have all the basic editing options you'd expect, like a choice of fonts, dictionaries, thesauruses and other options.
Papel has a few options that make it very useful - the main ones being an auto-save function and a back-up feature. You'll also be able to sort your papels by status, in other words, so you can easily see if they are approaching a final version, or if you're just getting started.
Papel is by no means revolutionary, but if you are a writer, then you should really take a look. Papel provides a more intuitive way of transferring your ideas from your head to the screen, while also giving you a view of your work that will allow you to see your story from a much more objective perspective.
Papel is a simple tool that might provide the change of perspective that your writing needs.
