Today’s Step: Introduction to the StoryWeaver Process

For most authors, the hardest part of writing is the raw invention needed to come up with an intriguing plot, compelling characters, a meaningful theme, and an involving genre. Once you have that all worked out, the actual writing is the fun part.

StoryWeaver employs an inspired new technique that starts with your original story concept and draws story threads from it, twisting them to add texture, spinning them into yarns to add context, then weaving them into the fabric of your story. And it does this step by step so you always know what to do now and then what to do next.

There are four stages in StoryWeaver’s story creation path, and you can see them as the top-level categories in the navigation menu to the right (or just below this text on smaller screens).

They are:





The Inspiration Stage helps you draw new story threads for your plot, characters, theme and genre from your original concept.

The Development Stage twists those threads to deepen and expand your ideas into greater detail.

The Exposition Stage helps you spin your ideas together into a full bodied yarn.

The Storytelling Stage weaves everything that happens in your story as it unfolds over time.

By the end of the path, you’ll have a completed story, fully developed and expertly told.
