Hi everyone! I haven’t posted an update regarding One Stop For Writers® for some time, so thought I’d do one now. For those of you who don’t know about this little adventure, One Stop For Writers is a one-of-a-kind online library created by Becca, Lee Powell of Scrivener, and me, where we’re doing our best to answer the question:
How can we make life easier for writers?
Hard to believe, but we’re heading towards the end of our first year, and it’s been a great ride so far. We have a massive descriptive thesaurus collection, (which will become 13 in coming months), a generator that’s a writer’s dream, templates & worksheets, story maps which lead writers through 6-stage plot structure for 3 different types of character arcs, tutorials…and so much more.
Soon we will also have scene mapping and timeline tools, a world building tool, and a whole new batch of writing lessons that will really help writers deepen their craft. (Update! All of these are now live.)
Full disclosure: I love working with Lee and Becca, because they work hard, have brilliantly creative minds, and are always on point when it comes to what writers need most. And what’s one of the biggest needs we all have? More time. I mean, do you ever have enough time to write? I don’t. So every precious moment we do get to sit down with our story is really best spent actually writing, right?
My Workspace is a creativity center where writers can create, save, and collect worksheets, notes, story maps, and bookmarked thesaurus entries to be assigned to individual Projects. These projects act like virtual folders, a perfect storage space for brainstorming materials that go with a novel, short story, or other WIP. Having it all in one place saves you a treasure hunt every time you sit down to write. Like I said, it’s about making sure writers are spending their time writing, not tracking things down. 🙂
