Quoll Writer Development

$105 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 23 months
I've been working on Quoll Writer for close to 7 years now but it's been a hobby project, something I do to help facilitate my own writing. The problem with Quoll Writer being a hobby project is that I can't devote much time to it. In the past I have either worked on a QW release in my spare time or on my stories and first book. During that time I've had a full time job that paid the bills but as of November 2015 my circumstances changed and I moved to working part-time.

Seizing the opportunity I decided to complete Editor Mode with my newfound extra time. It was a vanity project, something I really wanted to do because I believe it provides a function that writers have needed for a long time. Going forward I need funding to keep the pace of development high. 

This is where you come in! With your help I can devote the lion's share of my time to QW. 

Here's a brief list of the major features I'd like to add to QW in the future:

- Introduce scene and chapter planning
- Have a timeline allowing you to plan events and timings in your story
- Integrate with publishing tools and websites (such as - - Amazon, Lulu and Smashwords)
- Real HTML export
- Allow custom fields for characters, items and so on.  Allow other types of objects to be created and grouped together.
- Generate word clouds
- Print preview with better print handling and options
ODT/PDF file import/export
- Project/chapter versioning
- Build on and improve Editor Mode
- Create a "Find an Editor" website service
- Move QW to use JavaFX

The list of minor improvements is so long I won't even attempt to list them.

But let me be clear. Development of Quoll Writer will never stop while I have breath in my body and at least 1 finger that can use a keyboard. I use Quoll Writer for my own writing and I NEED Quoll Writer. It is only the pace of development that is changing. With your help I can keep the pace high and make QW even better.

What about a Mac version? I get a lot of requests for a Mac version but I believe that since it is a standalone project it would be better handled with a Kickstarter rather than as part of the normal development of QW. It also allows Mac users to get QW rather than non-Mac users having to pay for it. If you would be willing to fund a Kickstarter for a Mac version please let me know.

This gofundme campaign is designed for those who wish to give a one-off donation.  If you'd prefer to support Quoll Writer development on a regular basis please see the Quoll Writer Patreon page instead.

Version 2.6 is nearly here.

Good news everyone! I've now finished testing and bug fixing of QW and have moved into the final phase before release. This period can take anything from a couple of days to a week depending on whether I find any issues. During this time I actually use QW for writing (it will be nice to get back to that) and try and flush out anything that wasn't detected during testing. Think of it as general purpose beta testing.

Also during this time I'll be preparing the install file, the documentation for the website and the update information that QW itself contains.

I'll be honest, I'll be glad to be rid of this release, but more on that in a later post.
