Revised 2/4/19 to include Atomic Scribbler version 6 updates.

Quickly get up to speed on the free Atomic Scribbler software for Windows computers. This handy program allows you to easily organize and improve the efficiency of your writing. You'll save time as well as reduce frustration!

Although designed primarily for authors, the software is helpful for anyone who uses a computer as a writing tool. I use it myself, not only for my fiction series, but also for developing video courses.

The SmartEdit addon (a paid option) makes Atomic Scribbler unique among writing software. With the SmartEdit addon, you have 15 checks available from within the Atomic Scribbler interface helping you catch mistakes and polish your work.

Atomic Scribbler is quite useful and fully functional with or without SmartEdit.
