Release date: Currently in beta for pre-orders
Nimble Writer is a general-purpose tool for writing stories, be it short fiction stories or even complete novels or books. It focuses on being distraction-free, simple and fully customizable. I built Nimble Writer with a couple principles in mind to make it stand out as a primary application for authors:
  • Writing without distractions or worrying about formatting.
  • Stay more organized with the many useful organizational features.
  • Materials of reference (such as photos, drawings, scribbles of text, character information, and much more) are available at your fingertips.
  • Don't have any limitations to the default array of features. This means full customization, with a fully customizable and scriptable interface. Turn off features you don't need, change the entire look and feel of your writing environment, and much more.
If you are used to writing stories in applications such as Word or other regular office tools, you'll find that Nimble Writer will be able to help you organize bundles of stories and notes together much simpler and faster. In addition, Nimble Writer is able to import some of those old documents and convert it into the Nimble Writer format.

Advantages over traditional software
Traditional writing software such as Word, Open Office or Google Docs are made just for the purpose of writing, so they don't have anything that helps story writers manage their notes and reference material, and neither does it offer much customization. They don't have any kind of chapter management either. Nimble Writer has all of those things, making it a much more productive choice for story writing.

Importing and exporting
If you have any Office documents that you want to import, Nimble Writer can easily do that. We currently have importing support for Docx, ODF (odt), and Rtf. Besides importing, it can also export to several formats, including HTML, PDF, Epub, and even Wordpress blogs.

Steam's advantages
With Nimble Writer's presence on Steam we can use the power that Steam's platform brings us, such as Steam Cloud. This means that you will be able to save your stories and notes entirely on Steam's cloud servers, so that you can load up your stories on another computer as well, just as easy!

Don't forget about Steam Workshop! With the implementation of the Workshop, you'll be able to share interface themes and addons with the world, or just to customize the app with other people's addons! Share creativity!

This looks much more user-friendly than a lot of options out there like Word or even -shudder- Google Drive. I really hope this makes it!

Woo This is great! It'll be more simple to organize college written works.

Lately I've had some writing ideas. But I was frustrated with MS Office Word 2014 and LibreOffice Writer. This will help me write stories thank you very much.

Yep, you will!

Saw this the other day and this like a writer's dream digital tool. Sure you can use MS Word or something similar, but frankly it's not very book friendly mostly due to it's desire to fulfill corporate need. I am interested in getting the beta, but will we receive Steam keys if and when it get greenlit?

I've been baffled by Microsoft's inability to make a fully functional writing program that was to my liking, but you guys seem to have pulled it off! Just having the abilities to have my notes right there whenever I need them would be glorious. I really hope you guys get on steam, this sounds like a great product.
