Charlie's Ramblings (20) Writing Software...

Rachel Caine uses Scrivener, other writers prefer just plain ol' word like Maggie Stiefvater.  It got me thinking.  How important is having Writing software?  And if you have software that has all the gadgets, wouldn't that be a little distracting when you are trying to write your story?

I realize I'm throwing out so many questions and I do have a reason for this.  I'm trying to work out whether I should get flashy software for my ipad for my writing.  At the moment I seem to be just using Word on my laptop and when I'm out anywhere the good ol' notebook comes out.  But since I've recently bought an iPad I was trying to get into the habit of using this for writing on the go... instead of googling and playing games lol.  Plus I don't want to get too distracted by all the features that some software includes.  Some features are good, but not too many.

So if anyone has any suggestions at all as to what is a good app or even good software for the computer please let me know.  

Also on another note, I've finally sent some writing to my NEW critique partner Tammie.  Kinda freaking out about now though since I've never let someone else with writing experience check out my work.  I am also pretty keen to hear what she thinks though.

Fingers crossed I have a chance at captivating someone :)

Anyways that is all from me.  Hope you have a good night
