Just what I have been looking for. Free of distracting options and features, and the most useful way to manage structure of your document I have yet tested.

Also, since it hit 1.0, it's no longer freeware.

$30 shareware -- has someone let Jer know his app on here?

Look at the tags. Is it better now?

hmmm... doesn't seem like any of them are "properly" tagged....

but I'd defieintiely add something like: "creative" "story" "fullscreen" "novel" "writing" "database" ...

So which tags should I add?

Also, description and tage should be changed to indictae this is especially well designed for novelists and othe creative professionals.

(Similar apps are Scrivener and Ulysses)

Yea, version 1.0.0.2 is here!

Or, you can just donate. Don't let me stop you. Remember, you are all that stand between me and a square job where I won't have time to work on Jer's Novel Writer."

Where have you seen a 1.0 version?

Only the beta is free of charge. Version 1.0 costs $30, so this should be classified as Shareware.
