I'm looking for recommendations for a writing app that is suited for writing a novel. It doesn't need a bunch of bells and whistles and doesn't have to have any features that are specifically aimed at facilitating research or aiding in any "creative" way (no story suggestions, no "Dramatica" etc.). I don't need any outlining features, or index card type thing, or 'brainstorming' or whatnot. It doesn't have to connect to the cloud or sync across devices. I'm not looking for tons of formatting or layout features. F.ex. I'm familiar with Scrivener, and it's way overkill for what I need and am looking for. A writing app that is good at taking a lot of pages - for example, in my experience MSFT Word, starts seriously slowing down and growing cranky once you pass about 30-40 pages and generally it gives me a very unpleasant sensation of getting gummed up. I need something that can take a huge number of pages and not be affected. Simple. Robust. Preferably free. Not online or other crazy stuff, just local on my iMac. What's the best? At the moment I'm on Mavericks, eventually I intend to move to El Cap. I'm on a late 2009 27" iMac. TIA!
