For those of you who don’t know about One Stop For Writers, a one-of-a-kind online library created by Becca, Lee Powell of Scrivener, and me, let me catch you up. This site is where we’re doing our best to answer the question:
How can we make life easier for writers?
After all, we’re writers ourselves and know how hard it can be. We also know how having a powerful toolkit can really help us create stronger fiction faster, so we’re designing one that contains all the things we believe writers need most to succeed.
So far we’ve built a massive descriptive thesaurus collection, an idea 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, scene maps, a character builder…and so much more.
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?
To that end, we’ve made it so each of our fellow wordsmiths has a special corner of the library to call their own.
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. 🙂
We hope you are enjoying the library as much as we are. If you haven’t been by yet, stop in sometime and give our 2-week free trial a try.
To stay in the loop regarding One Stop For Writers, we recommend signing up for our occasional newsletter. And don’t worry, there’s no spam mail from us–that’s not how we roll. But we do use it though to provide screenshots of new features and walk you through what’s new.
Happy writing, all!
Angela & Becca
