There is no right answer to that question. It depends on you and what you like best. You can use a plain old word processor. Or you can use a program like ywriter or scrivener (which is available for windows as a public beta, check out http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivenerforwindows ).

Hi i have downloaded the beta version on scrivener and will look at it today.It will expire 30th jan but then there will be another version to download.I have also found good reviews for two free writer downloads please take a look if you think they may be of help to you.

I am just going to play with them all to see which i prefer Very Happy
