|Scripts need to be
laid out with very specific margins and style, or agents and
studios won't even read them.
Screenplay Formatting Software products are
essentially specialized word-processors that do all of this
automatically, making it quick and easy to write in proper format.
The three most popular
Here's more information about these three:
Magic and Final
Draft are virtually identical. They have the same
features, and each has big stars and directors endorsing them.
They are the only two "preferred file formats" according
to the Writer's Guild. Each can import the other's file
Whenever one gets a new feature, the other
adds it at the next upgrade. The only big difference is the
"look and feel" of the working environment, so you
really can't go wrong with either.
Screenwriter is made by the same company that makes Movie
Magic. It is the "basic" version of Movie Magic,
including all of the necessary features, but none of the fancy and
flashy ones. It has the same file format as Movie Magic.
The big advantage is that is costs more than $100 LESS than either
Movie Magic or Final Draft.
are writing a Novel, Screenplay, or Stage Play, you need to come
up with an inspiration, develop the idea, and organize your
Story Development Software helps with all three of these tasks.
Some products specialize in one or two of these areas.
Others tack all three, but usually not in as much detail as ones

Here's more information about these five:
is by far our best-seller, outselling the other five products,
combined! StoryWeaver is a step-by-step approach to story
development that takes the author from concept to completed
manuscript. It begins with Inspiration, carries it through
Development, and into Storytelling style. It is perfect for
a beginning writer, and the best aid for even an advanced writer.
Pro is a a very powerful, but very complex story
development product. Dramatica is built around a patented
"Story Engine" that takes an author's answers to
questions about his or her story and cross-references them to
predict the perfect underlying dramatic structure. It has a
pretty high learning curve, but is the only writing software
product that can tell you more about your story than you told it!
Writer's DreamKit is the "little brother of Dramatica
Pro. It uses the same patented Story Engine but doesn't go
into as much detail. While Dramatica Pro is good for any
story, Writer's DreamKit is better for less complex stories, such
as action stories, or half-hour television episodes.
DreamKit is also better for less experienced writers, as Dramatica
Pro would likely overwhelm them.
Structure is not a story development guide like
StoryWeaver, nor is it a structure design program like Dramatica.
Rather, it is a collection of integrated tools for organizing your
materials and linking information together. In it, you can drop
your material into templates for chapters or scenes, and track
plot events and character growth.
Writer is the "little brother" of Power
Structure. It does the same things as Power Writer but in
less detail, and without some of the fancier features.
