Software Menulis (Writing Software)

Percikan ide, variasi ide dan imajinasi, variasi jalan cerita dan konflik konflik, setting, data dan fakta, dll, bagaimana penulis mengorganisasikannya? Aku baru mulai belajar menulis, bingung bagaimana enaknya menyimpan dan ‘memanggil’ semua itu. Apakah manual atau pakai software? Kalau software, adakah yang gratis?

Aku teringat pernah membaca liputan penulis-penulis terkenal Jerman. Di situ terungkap, umumnya penulis itu masih mengorganisir bahan tulisan dan menulis secara manual dengan pensil di atas kertas. Tapi memang umumnya mereka adalah penulis senior. Penulis yang relatif muda, sudah banyak yang sejak awal memanfaatkan software. Aku jadi ingin tau pengalaman para penulis tanah air tentang hal satu ini. Jadi aku bertanya ke Paberland. Ternyata sama saja, ada yang manual dan ada pula yang memanfaatkan software mulai dari MsWord, Ms Excell, dan software khusus penulis. Untuk software menulis dan manajemen yang berhubungan dengan kepenulisan, yang gratis, berikut rangkuman dari Paberland dan browsing-an ku:

yWriter

yWriter is a word processor which breaks your novel into chapters and scenes, helping you keep track of your work while leaving your mind free to create. It will not write your novel for you, suggest plot ideas or perform creative tasks of any kind. yWriter was designed by an author, not a salesman!”

LaTeX

“LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system; it includes features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation. LaTeX is the de facto standard for the communication and publication of scientific documents.”

celtex

“Celtx is the world’s first all-in-one media pre-production system. It replaces ‘paper & binder’ pre-production with a digital approach that’s more complete, simpler to work with, and easier to share”

Debrief

“Debrief is software for saving notes on your PC. Ideas. Experiences. Research. Thoughts. They come from projects, meetings, status, tasks, issues, changes, risks, decision, contacts, brainstorming, pondering, work, studies, school. Capture them while you can and put them to good use later.”

Q10

“Q10 is a simple but powerful text editor designed and built with writers in mind.

Scripped

“Layanan online yang memungkinkan kita menulis, menyunting, dan mencetak naskah langsung di website ini. Sehingga kita bisa bekerja dari mana saja.”

Mindjet Mindmanager (Free Trial)

“Turn brainstorming into action plans using an interactive environment that shows overviews and details in a clear format. MindManager helps validate priorities, get buy-in on goals and strategies, and map out timelines.”

SciPlore MindMapping

“SciPlore MindMapping is the first mind mapping tool focusing on researchers’ needs by integrating mind mapping with reference and pdf management. SciPlore MindMapping offers all the features one would expect from a standard mind mapping software, plus the following special features for researchers.”
