"The task of a writer consists of being able to make something out of an idea." -Thomas Mann
You have the imagination. You can find story ideas everywhere: in people and scenes from everyday life, in the news, in your musings. Right now, your characters are waiting to act and speak. And you know you have the flair for words to bring them to life.
But effective fiction needs more than style and imagination. Your stories need believable characters with meaningful problems, sensual settings, and gripping plots, all seamlessly woven together, in order to entertain and move your audience.
Now there's a tool to help. StoryBuilder lends structure to your premise, and helps you build a solid foundation for your story. You can write faster, easier, and better. Best of all, it's fun. Mistakes aren't costly, and false starts won' t fill your waste basket. You're free to change and revise, to take chances, and to experiment- to find the story only you can tell.
StoryBuilder contains dozens of templates, with more than a hundred story elements to build your story's problems, characters, settings and plot.
Many of these templates contain lists of choices, with thousands of suggestions to help eliminate writer's block.
Filling in these templates creates a story plan or outline. Working from the outline, you'll know your characters and their problems, what happens as they try to solve them, and how your story comes out- all before you set word to paper.
