It has been discussed on the forums in the past, about keeping a diary of your work, as you create your games. I have found a very nice piece of software that is perfect for this. Best of all, it is completely free, has a simple user interface and has a nice range of formatting options, as well as multiple diary capability.

The Hammerhead Rhythm Station listed is so fun I'm surprised it's freeware. :)

I can humbly offer my services if anyone needs any audio for their games. I create and produce a variety of electronic music and have used most of the audio aps mentioned in this thread. I have a lot of material released under a Collective Commons license and am also willing to do custom work should someone desire a specific kind of sound or mood.

I don't want to come across like I am plugging my own music (especially since this is only my second post on these forums) so if anyone is interested or wants more info send me a PM and I will provide you with whatever links or information you might need.

Oh yeah.... it goes without saying that any custom work I might end up doing for people on these forums would be completely free of charge.

A huge resource for freeware is nonags.com
as in no cost, no adware, no spyware, etc. Most programs are rated, and it has everything from card games to 3D.

It's mostly for proggys, tools, and utilities though, not as much for graphics and music, but there's some of that too.

Free music released in the Creative Commons: ccMixter.org

Freeware multi-track recorder, audio sequencer and mixer for Windows: Kristal Audio Engine, Manual.

Free Photoshop-like program: Paint.net

Free Vector image editor: Inkscape

Fun stuff to play around with.

If anyone uses Mozilla Thunderbird for their email then there is quite a nice calendar diary add-on called Lightning for it that could be useful.

In Mystery's defense I would point out that she wrote that 3 years ago, nonesuch.

In its place I perhaps could recommend the Celtx project planner that NickyDude posted about awhile ago.

3 years? Oh dear! I'm in *it* again!

It didn't occur to me to look at the date. It is the first time I've had anything to do with forums. I just assumed that it was a recent posting. I'll pay a bit more attention in future. Sorry dudes!
Yours Nonesuch :)

It was still a legitimate question though, so don't worry about it. This is a pinned topic for a reason so thanks for pointing that out.

Google Sketchup is pretty good for 3D object creation - dead easy to use as well :)
Completed projects

2. "Main Course" (ODD competition entry)

Currently working on:
1: The Lighthouse (a horror story collaboration with Dan Blazquez)
2: An(n)achronism

Floor-Planner

Great for drawing up a simple floor plan with a few bells and whistles too. You'll need something to screen capture if you are using a free account. I managed with One-Note in MS Office 07- but Irfanview also has screen capture that works excellent.

I'm having a lot of fun with it!
