Some of the links to Internet articles about fiction writing herein are no longer active. So I'll deeply appreciate anyone's help with updating the information.

         And in the meantime, I invite you to check out StoryCraft Software at the Writers SuperCenter.  StoryCraft is the only software program I've ever used or heard of that actually takes the writer through the whole writing process.  I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who is serious about writing their novel or screenplay.

DIGITAL STORYTELLING ("a new medium of communication, learning, and self-expression that mixes the age-old art of telling stories with the new possibilities of worldwide digital communication and interactivity. It uses the 'language of film' with its visual style, its sense of pace, and its key design principles. But the subject of these film essays is the life experience of each of the storytellers.")
