TeX is fine for many types of writing, including novels or even screenplays. What it is not fine for is DTP-type publishing. Its integration between text and graphics is pretty minimal, so if you want fancy features like making a line of text follow a curved path, TeX is probably not the best tool to use. Although, there are efforts to make a next generation TeX that integrates TeX more fully with a graphics model like PDF.
