Alpha version of Nulis is online! I'm so happy =)
Nulis is a tree editor for writers, making the process of outlining your stories, articles, and books easy and convenient.
Come check it out! I would really love to hear what you think about it.
(For now Nulis works best in Chrome, and there's no mobile version yet.)
The first 100 early adopters who will test it and send me some feedback or bug reports will receive free lifetime accounts!
