Visualize Your Manuscript With Fictionary – First Unveiling!
There was a lot of excitement at Fictionary this week when our development team delivered our working prototype, and we took the app out to the writing community for early testing. We have authors from Canada, the US, and the UK using Fictionary on their manuscripts, and the initial response has been fantastic.
Here is what author Donna Galanti had to say:
Hey, for those of you with a finished draft. This is a great editing application tool to use!

Visualizing My Manuscript
I imported AVALANCHE, my third novel, and seconds later, Fictionary automatically showed me the number Scenes per Character. You can quickly see that Kalin is present in the highest number of scenes. She’s the protagonist, so this makes sense. Next is Roy. The story is about Roy, so this is also good. Then comes Ben, Kalin’s love interest.
You can also look at a scene in detail. If you want to know who is in a scene, the app shows you that too! So for scene 10 in Avalanche, you’ll see:
How Fictionary Works: A writer imports a manuscript. Within seconds, Fictionary automatically creates a character list, links characters to scenes, plots word count per scene, and draws a story arc.
The writer then inputs key story elements for each scene, evaluates and edits the manuscript based on Fictionary’s reports, and then exports the updated manuscript. The reports in Fictionary are dependent on the writer’s input and is specific to each manuscript.
