Writing/Editing Software

This list is mainly for me, but if it helps out another writer, Great!

After looking into my editing options, I just don't have the $1,000-1,500 sitting around for a pro. I might be able to afford some helpful software though. Here is what I've found so far.

White Smoke - Looks a little pricey, but has some interesting features like a style checker.
Download.com has a 30 day trial version.

Clear Edits - Looks a little cheaper than the White Smoke program. They offer a free trial too.

Writers Workbench - Ouch $115.00 for a personal copy. This one offers no free trial. Has anyone ever used it? It looks to be geared towards teachers rather than individual writers.

Auto Crit - This one is more Web based. It's cheaper than the rest for the basic package. Also has a cliche finder setting.

Serenity Software - Reasonably priced, but does nto offer a free trial or evaluation copy. Has anybody used this?

Cliche Cleaner - searches out standard cliche's to remove.

It's a small list for now, I'm sure there are more software options out there. If you know of any, feel free to link them. I'm interested in seeing whats available.
