I know Pacemaker has been mentioned, but what other writing tools do you find helpful? I downloaded the NaNo trial of Scrivner to give it another go. I had it on an older PC but I never really got the hang of it. The tutorial that came with the NaNo trial was helpful, and I have high hopes for it. The only downside is that it doesn't travel. I'm used to things I can access anywhere like Google Drive and Keep.
