I just wrote about 140K words in last two months using notepad++

Tabs for open documents

Wonderful regex search and/or replace on selection, document, all open documents, all in directory or including subdirectories.

Minimal markup when imported later to something else:

_and_ for auto itallics

*and* for auto bold

Auto tables from comma separated lists

Auto headings base on line spacing

I now distribute copies for proof reading etc to Kindle etc using .prc fornat

(text -- > Word or Libre Office --> Save as filtered HTML --> Mobi Creator --> eBook)

Kindle DXG is nice for proof reading and allows markup. The "share" feature is rubbish sadly.
