Creating Fictionary began when I finished the first draft of my first novel. By then I'd read over 70 how-to-write and how-to-self-edit books. I’d taken writing courses and workshops, and had 100s of writing and rewriting tips swirling about in my head.

I knew I had to begin the revision process and improve the quality of my draft before sharing my work but I didn’t know how to go about it.


How was I supposed to remember the torrent of advice and apply it to each scene? A spreadsheet, that’s how!

I created a spreadsheet with a chapter-by-chapter, scene-by-scene structure. Then I listed the different writing advice I needed to consider for EVERY scene. I ended up with over 38 “Key Elements of Fiction”. I used the reports from the spreadsheet to visualize my novel.


After the hard work of self-evaluating and revising my drafts, the high quality of my fiction was validated when my first two novels were shortlisted for prestigious crime writing awards and I landed my publisher (Imajin Books).

My first editor said: “If every manuscript was this good, my job would be so easy!”

The next exciting moment came when DESCENT, my first novel, hit #1 on Amazon’s hot new releases. I’ve since sold the German rights to Luzifer-Verlag for publication in Germany. Imajin Books also published BLAZE and AVALANCHE.


Surely we weren’t the first authors to struggle with editing our first drafts, so we searched for an app to address our problem but found nothing. We did discover that many writers struggled with revisions and ended up using tools such as spreadsheets, whiteboards, or yellow stickies.


That’s when it hit us. We thought other writers could benefit from our immediate approach to evaluating, editing, and revising fiction.

The excitement was too much for Mathew to sit by and watch, so he decided to get involved. He knows technology and how to run a business.


Mathew, and I developed Fictionary in beautiful British Columbia, Canada and thousands of writers have now used Fictionary!

We’d love to hear from you, understand your editing challenges, and incorporate your ideas.

Our goal is to help writers tell better stories.

Thanks for reading 🙂
