How to Use StoryTeller

Import your manuscript and let StoryTeller go to work analyzing your story structure. Use the visual insights and the 38 Fictionary Story Elements to evaluate, edit, and improve each scene.

When your edit is complete, you'll have a powerful story ready to export and share with the world.

StoryTeller automatically identifies character names, links characters to scenes, and shows you where and when each character appears in your story. You’ll know immediately if your protagonist is getting enough page time.

The story arc has been around for over 2,000 years. It’s a proven form that keeps readers engaged, but it’s not about being formulaic: the story and the imagination behind it are unique to you. A powerful story contains key plot events. To create a story readers love, these 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.

Captures every Key Story Element in one place. Use the Story Map to work on common problem areas such as story flow, empty stages, POV goals, lack of tension and conflict, or confusing timelines.

What if Goal Fails?

If there is nothing at stake, then the goal is not strong enough and there won't be tension in the scene.

Scene Climax

If you think of the classical three-act story, a scene can be modeled in the same way. The climax must happen in act III of a scene.


Whenever a character learns new information, they should make a decision or change their course of action. This gives you the opportunity to think of all the different ways they could react and choose the best course of action for your story
