In the old version, writers sacrificed "chapters" to organize the pre and post material. The updated version provides folders for glossary, foreword, and much much more. A few updates in the new version provides a surprising bonus. How cool it is to be timed with word count!
I plan on writing up a list of improvements that I think would be nice throughout the exploration of this new version. I have been a loyal customer in the past. I encouraged new authors to utilize the old version at every writing workshop I taught at libraries and comic Cons. I continue to sing the praise for this product. I recommend Write It Now 5 with a six star rating.
I love how I can link characters to each other and be able to see where I can create more conflict.

What I truly love is once you get used to it, which is quickly achieved, it takes care of the background story requirements, tracking and allows you the writer to just get on and write, that is how software like this should be.
Does exactly what it says
In fairness I haven't started really using it yet as, like most fully-featured software, there is a lot to learn. But my initial impressions are that it is something written in the nineties! Visually it is years behind what almost all software looks like these days - basic "square" title bars and windows. The colour scheme picker is straight out of Windows themes circa Win 98!
Default installation is to the root of C: which again is very odd these days (it doesn't install to C:\program files as you would expect).
Default saves are also to that location (not My Documents), and although you can choose location to save your projects to (i.e. My Documents!) exporting characters and other elements you cannot. So if I want to build up a bank of characters for instance they will be saved in a different place to the projects.
Minorish niggles I guess but I was just very surprised that this software, that seems to consistently get awards and be top of Best Buy lists, is soo dated.
