Apologice in advance for the maybe off topic question.

Is there any Ubuntu application that helps for the start-up phase of story writing?

I'm looking for such a tool that provides me the capability to build up the story diagrams, define characters, project the evolution of a saga the saga.

Thanks in advance.

thanks for the link I had no idea of a community for writers :-) – DrFalk3n Apr 29 '11 at 13:44
very welcome ;) – type Apr 29 '11 at 22:03

What I advise you first is to try to install yWriter with Wine. Works perfectly. Celtx is a bit more awkward. Although, look at PyRoom, which is a useful thing.

Good yWriter it has also a Linux version so no need for wine :-) – DrFalk3n Apr 29 '11 at 13:43
Bad that it works crappy, depending on your Mono version. Sometimes PE app in wine works better, than the native version, especially if the author is not a Linux guy. – Barafu Albino Apr 30 '11 at 5:21
