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.

Scene Name

Naming a Scene helps you determine the purpose of the scene, keep track of your outline, and quickly find scenes you want to work on.

13
Purpose

There must always be a reason why any given scene exists in your story. A scene without a purpose will distract the reader from the main story. It may even bore the reader. If a scene doesn't drive the story forward, then ask yourself why it’s even in your novel.

14
Scene Opening Type

Avoid boring your reader by opening each scene the same way.

38 Story Elements

Identified from extensive research into how people connect with stories, the 38 Fictionary Story Elements will open your mind to endless creative editing possibilities. Keep track of your characters, tighten your plot, and create engaging settings.
