Wow, Fictionary is one of the first assistive softwares that makes real sense with the process. Even though I’m comfortable with understanding structure, I definitely like the idea of having such easily accessible second-eye editing back-up.

What amazing software – It’s insane that someone was able to make something able to put into an image what writers have in their mind.

Kristina Stanley (CEO Fictionary)
Reply to  C.S. Meyer

Thank you for saying that. It took me a full year to design StoryTeller before we built a prototype. Now we keep adding to it as writers give us suggestions. Good luck with the draw.

Reply to  Tim Seabrook

Hi Tim
The story arc will redraw as you revise your story, so you can see immediately the effect changes have on the structure. Good luck with the draw.

Editing is the hard. Having a tool like this would definitely be helpful with learning and making each book better than the one before.

Kristina Stanley (CEO Fictionary)
Reply to  Shelley

Hi Shelley,
Editing IS hard. Our subscribers tell us they love to learn while they are working on their own story instead of trying to remember what they learned in a course and figuring out how to appy it. Good luck with the draw.

Sounds terrific! Revising is one of my biggest challenges as a writer.

Reply to  Kimberly B.

Hi Kimberly,
I think that’s true for many writers. We developed StoryTeller because I found revising hard and needed a tool. Good luck with the draw!
