I want to write my life story of how God showed me mercy and grace in setting me free from a tormented life.

I was going to be a bit snippy and say “text edit” cuz do you really need anything more than a text editor to write anything, but then I remembered an open sourced screen play writing software. So I guess if you want to write about you life like it was a movie (I’m assuming it would help with organization as well) there is a program called Celtx

I’ve never used it, it’s just part of a long list of open sourced program that I know of. See if that helps.

This might not be suitable if you’re writing a novel but a great piece of software that might get your thoughts organized is VoodooPad. It is basically an offline wiki.

A spelling checker would help; it’s “software,” not “softwear,” at least if you’re talking about computers.

I’m sorry, I miss read the question. Softwear for my mac. I hand spin wool and crochet some great keyboard warmers. I find hey really help with life story writing. But don’t recomes them for essays, they just don’t give off the right vibe.

I can vouch for Celtx. While I use Final Draft for my professional work, Celtx is the best screenplay/stageplay/novel formatter I have ever used that is available for free download. I highly recommend it, especially if you are on a mac.

Abiword is an open source wordprocessor that is well received by writers. It doesn’t have the best interface but it is very stable and best of all free.

I hope that answers your question. God bless.
