  • A Worldbuilding tool packed with surveys to build a fleshed out, custom world
  • Worksheets, Templates, Checklists, Tutorials and more, to not only assist with your novel, but to help you grow into a stronger storyteller!
  • A robust Character Building Tool* that allows you to craft deep, complex characters by pulling together elements of backstory, personality, and motivation from our custom thesauri to provide a custom character arc blueprint for any arc (change, failed, or static) *coming soon!

  79. DJ Blackford says:

    I have been a member, albeit a free one, of One Stop For Writers since it debuted. It was pretty cool then, but it’s awesome now. I know I should pay for a full subscription, but all of the monthly fees on things I already have, not necessarily writing-related, seem to peck away at my finances and add up to more than is comfortable. Still, it is a very cool and useful set of tools and the implementation, courtesy in no small part of Lee Powell, is outstanding. It would be awesome to have a full membership!

    • Thank you for the kind words. 🙂 Lee is amazing, as is Abhishek, our part time developer. They have really made magic, taking out content and transforming it into the tools we have there. Our One Stop team is great to work with. Good luck in the draw!

  80. I love the idea! What a great giveaway.

  81. Jennifer says:

    Thanks for the prizes!

  82. Not sure what happened, but I got kicked out of the rafflecopter before I finished. Anyway, I tried!

  83. One Stop’s story map and tools have saved my writing! I am addicted! Thank you for creating these resources. So indebted.

  84. Kristi Simpson says:

    Thank you for the opportunity

  85. What a great idea. Great writers’ guidebook from great writers’ guides

  86. Mary says:

    I have used your free resources and a few of the books and would love asubscription to the site!

  87. I am amazed at what you all are doing. Thank you!

    • It’s fun to offer this kind of stuff to writers. As writers, we know how hard this job is, and how much we all juggle. We need to remember to focus and celebrate the journey, not just the end results. Plus, we’re in love with this time of year when everyone is thinking deeper about what they love about the world and the people in it. 🙂

  88. Victoria L Oman says:

    I love this idea! Thank you for an adult advent calendar that I will look forward to checking out every day!
