To start using yWriter you will be able to access a help file that will guide you through out the creation process. You will have to write the name of the project, the author and where the text will be saved. From that moment onwards, you will only have to write and organize the contents in the way that adapts best to your way of working. yWriter allows you to divide the text into chapters, and to add various pieces of information that may come in handy, like the scenes that can be found in each chapter, the characters that take part, the locations or any other note that you may consider important.
yWriter also includes other tools that will make life easier, like the possibility to create a storyboard, a word counter, a graphic ranking of the scenes, or the possibility to create backups.
