StorYBook gets in the way of plotting fiction

You could try Writer's Cafe (http://www.writerscafe.co.uk), written by Julian Smart, the guy who did the wxGTK library. Note that it's pay-for software, but it's very good, and they've even tweaked it to run on the eeePC. StorYBook is quite attractive, but my main problem with it (apart from the ones above, of which having to enter all your characters, locations, etc before you start writing was the most annoying) was that once you have entered a chapter, you can't drag it to a new location. For instance, if you write chapters 1, 2 and 3, and then decide to put 3 before 2, it doesn't appear that you can do that.
