“The number of people who start writing a book is much larger than the number who manage to finish it. But no worries, we are here to help you.
With our writing tools you can track your progress thus far, plan your novel, write your novel and be able to focus on what matters for you the most: FINISHING THE DAMN BOOK!
Use the application in your native language. The application is currently available in English, Dutch, German, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, French, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Korean and Chinese.
Backup Scared of losing your progress? Don’t worry, we’ve got a backup system for you. You can manually save your databases to our secured cloud. Only if you want to though. Now you can access or recover all your data on all your android devices.
Timer Start our 25 minutes timer and focus on your writing. You won’t be able to see your notification-bar. After a short break you can simply reset the timer and be back on track immediately.
Writing Progress ‘Writing Progress’ is split up in 2 tabs. With ‘Writing Log’ you can monitor how much and when you’ve written. ‘Progress Stats’ on the other hand shows you the statistics of your books. When you select the bell icon you can setup your personal ‘Daily Writing Reminder’. An novel contains on average 80.000 words. So let’s get started!
Timeline Plan the events of your book in chronological order. But use the chapter function to order your events in the order they are presented to the reader. This will get you an overview in which order your main-events happened. This helps you also understanding what your characters already know and what they’ve been through.
Characters We recommend you to create a profile for every character, even the smallest characters. It’s of course unnecessary to fill in all the text fields for every character. A good habit while writing, is to note everything you come up with for a character in his/her profile. Hereby you can look this information up much quicker. It’s basically your cheatsheet for all your characters.
Chapters In the chapters module, you can chronologically order your chapters. In the description, you can describe what happens in this chapter. With this you will be able to see how your story goes in a glimp and see the chapter lengths in a nice overview.
Scenes After you’ve tapped on a chapter, the application opens the scenes module. In here we recommend to plan your chapter really in depth. You can see this as an abstract way of your chapter. The scenes can also be re-ordered.
(Sub-) Locations We recommend to start planning your environment from the biggest place in your world (e.g. a village). From here on you start to dig deeper: streets > houses > floor of a house > specific room. You can create a sub-location by tapping on a location.
Quarterly Writing Goals If you don’t set yourself some deadlines, there is a big chance you will never finish your books. It’s a great idea to make a rough planning of want you want to achieve in the next few months. For example: start writing chapter 6 and 7, edit chapter 4 or write 20.000 words. Without goals, you don’t have a point of focus. Set your goals and achieve them.
Unleash your inner novelist!
