Plotline is an application to assist in the creation of a novel. While this does not fully replace the old-school P&P (pencil & paper) method, it is nice to have everything in one place. Some of the features include:

Planning the novel plot arc, form inciting incident to the climax.
Adding characters, with prompts for character biographies.
Creating plotlines for the novel, and assigning characters as part of the plotlines.
Adding scenes to the novel to plan out exactly how the novel will work out.
Best feature: a full-fleged editor, with markdown syntax highlighting support and a distraction-free mode.
Better feature: binding the novel content into a various format, ebook or otherwise.
