Editing in both Word and InDesign - looking for alternative to WordsFlow

I have my book set up already - with the help of good people here in the forum. But I am currently making corrections and I do these both in InDesign and Word.

To avoid this I see two options:
1) Use WordsFlow - but I work on a tight budget and don't want to buy it
2) Link the text to the Word file when creating an InDesign document - but I have my documents set up already

 

Is there a good solution to avoiding my current double-work?

No, just invest in Wordsflow, otherwise you can adopt an InCopy workflow, but if you want Word-InDesign-Word and back you need Wordsflow.

Why can't you make all the changes in InDesign? Answer that, and we'll be in a much better position to help.

But linking Word files and making corrections there without Wordsflow is a fool's errand.

I probably could but prefer working with the text in Word.

But if there's no good solution other than Words flow, then I have my answer.
