I downloaded yWriter and am finding it to be a great help. I always lose track of my projects whenever they get above a couple of thousand words but this is brilliant. Everything is easily accessible and I can follow the different threads with no problem at all. I havent lost track of the viewpoint and tense once which is amazing for me. I have pretty much doubled my daily word count because I dont have to spend time working out what the hell is going on and what Ive already written! Thanks for making this freeware.

After 20 years in the IT business Ive gained a deep appreciation for programs that set out to do a specific job, then do it better than anything else. yWriter fits in that category.
