Overwhelmed by book editing? Fictionary can help!

At the end of their first draft, many writers have more questions than answers:

  • Is my story any good?
  • Does my plot make sense?
  • Where do I start?
  • How do I know I'm finished editing?

What can Fictionary help you do?

Easily import your manuscript and let Fictionary go to work analyzing your story. Our automated story insights will help you understand exactly what's working and what needs more attention.

Our Story Editing journey is a tried and tested process that’s been used by thousands of writers to make the story-editing process easy and less scary.

Fictionary automatically creates your story arc by analyzing your text for key plot points. This allows you to compare your structure and pacing to that of successful commercial fiction.

The story arc has been around for over 2,000 years. To create a story readers love, your key plot events must happen at the right time.

Quickly visualize the pacing of your story based on scene length. Instead of going through the tedious exercise of listing your word count per scene in a spreadsheet, you can see the information within seconds.

A great story is a collection of great scenes in the right order at the right time. Fictionary makes it easy to do in-depth scene-by-scene editing to ensure every scene moves the story forward. With Fictionary, you’ll ensure each scene has tension and conflict and is structured for maximum reader engagement.

Your Story Map captures all 38 Story Elements in one place. Use it to see common problem areas such as story flow, empty stages, POV goals, lack of tension and conflict, or confusing timelines.

Many Fictionary users have become bestsellers. Some won awards, while others signed publishing deals.

Several authors had initially self-published their books without doing a Fictionary story edit, but after receiving bad reviews, turned to Fictionary to improve them. After republishing them, they reported huge improvements in sales and reviews. Some even went on to win awards.
