Introducing Scrollistic, a complete writing studio for novels and eBooks, fiction and non-fiction.

Scrollistic is a lightweight chapter based word processor which generates clean HTML with CSS styling. You can use the print or ebook stylesheets, or write your own if you know some basic CSS.

Check out the Scrollistic Website if you want to know more.

Scrollistic is available from the Windows 10 Store and is completely free.

In addition to formatting a document for print, it can also integrate with mobi generators such as Kindlegen from Amazon to generate standards compliant mobi files. Including Automatic Table of Contents generation and OPF3 compliant packaging files.

Although Scrollistic is primarily a writing app, the HTML files generated can used for any purpose that requires HTML.

Practical Scriptwriter

Writing scripts for movies, television, stage and radio involves learning strict formatting rules. Traditional word processors have a hard time maintaining that format and cause the Writer to change from "creating content" to "fixing the formatting".

Practical Scriptwriter provides a format free writing experience to allow quick and easy writing and editing. The format is applied only when a PDF is created of the final script or when printing is required. This approach also makes adapting a work for a different medium far easier.

Available for Windows 7 to 10 from here. The free trial is not time limited but you need to purchase a code to export or print
