I routinely use Scrivener for all my long-form writing. It’s a typewriter, a ring binder, and scrapbook combined. The application takes tools familiar to writers everywhere and integrates them in new and exciting ways. I encourage you to read this Scrivener Review.
The software for macOS brings your notes, research, and writing together, so everything you need is always right at hand. Once you get past the learning curve (and it is initially steep), Scrivener helps you achieve the goal of writing full-length novels.
You can export to MS Word. For self-publishing, you can compile finished manuscripts and upload digital and print editions.
