Writing Shed lets you create projects for novels, short stories and poems. Each project stores your work for one of these types. There is no limit on the number of projects you can create. When you launch the app the first window you will see is the  Projects  window listing all current projects.

Start a project:

As a first time user, you won’t see any projects in the window, so you’ll have to create one. To do this:

  • Click on the button labelled  Start a new project  at the bottom of the window. A dialog will appear.

  • Choose the type of project you want to create from the popup menu. Choose  Novel  for now.

  • Enter the name of the project.

  • Click OK.

You will be presented with a new window where you can start working on your new project.
