StoryWeaver is a revolutionary new approach to story development. It is so named because it employs a technique for drawing story threads from your original concepts, much as a weaver might draw thread from wool. Step by step, you grow and clarify your story as you twist the threads into yarns, spin those yarns, and eventually weave them together into the tapestry of your story.

Whether you already have a story you wish to improve or are just starting out with no more than a concept, StoryWeaver will help you grow your story, adding power to your plot, passion to your characters, humanity to your theme and richness to your genre.

Every step of the way you’ll know exactly what your story needs and what to do next as you develop a riveting plot, memorable characters, a compelling theme, and an involving genre.

Key Features

200 Interactive Steps

StoryWeaver guides you through more than 200 Story Cards – each an interactive screen designed to help you develop a single dramatic element of your story.  

You simply read and follow the instructions on each card, enter the information requested and move on to the next card.  By the time you have filled in all the cards, your story will be complete.

Build Your Story’s World As You Write

StoryWeaver will take you through the entire process of developing your story’s world, who’s in it, what happens to them, and what it all means.  

Every step of the way you’ll know exactly what to do with specific instructions, information, insights and inspirations, with tips & tricks used by the pros.  Whether you only have a basic idea of what your story is about or even none at all, StoryWeaver will lead you step by step from concept to completion.

Automatically References Your Work For Further Development

StoryWeaver will automatically reference the work you’ve done on earlier cards to help you make decisions and design story elements on each new card.  

And, after completing each minor section, StoryWeaver will help you fold all the elements you’ve created into a single, constantly evolving treatment containing everything you’ve developed so far.

Folds Each New Detail Into Your Evolving Story

From your very first Story Card, you always have a complete story that just gets deeper, richer, and more detailed as you go.  

By the time you’ve completed all 200 cards, you’ve have a completely developed treatment of your entire story – every character, every plot point, ever thematic issue, every element of your message.  You’ll even have a time-line progression of every chapter or scene, and all that happens in it.

Guides You Every Step Of The Way

StoryWeaver is not for everyone, but if you’ve ever been stuck for an idea, found yourself creating the same tired characters, at a loss for what should happen next, or found that your story made sense but had no real passion, then StoryWeaver may be just the tool you need to make your novel, screenplay or stage play powerful and to get it completed.

Point by Point Examples

We’ve completely redesigned StoryWeaver’s navigation system to now include Next Step and Previous Step buttons for simplicity, but also to allow for direct navigation to any Story Card in the path with collapsible section headings, and a “You Are Here” indicator in the path list.

Place-Holder: Pick Up Right Where You Left Off

StoryWeaver’s new Place-Holder feature remembers where you were when you sign off or change devices, and will automatically return you to the last Story Card you were on.

Work On Multiple Stories Simultaneously

Create as many individual Story Projects as you like and switch between them with the click of a button, whenever inspiration strikes.

Adjustable Font Size

The most requested feature by users of the previous version of StoryWeaver was the ability to change font size depending on screen resolution.  And now you have it!  The Font-Size menu allows you to globally increase/decrease font size across the entire program, including on your response text!

Free Upgrades!

Your software IS FANTASTIC!!!! I’m mowing my way through a story, literally unburdening my mind of all the details of the story, enabling me to focus on plot and creativity! Having Storyweaver as a tool to keep everything organized and consolidated is just a god-send. Many thanks for your brilliant creation!! =)

StoryWeaver is UNBELIEVABLE. Wonderful. Thank you! Tell your writers it’s a miracle.
 Stefanie Stolinsky, Ph.D.

Your demo helped me more in a couple of hours than months of trying to set up my story on my own.
— Sean Heffernan

Thank you for Story Weaver. I just purchased it today and I already have a partially developed synopsis and an outline for a novel that started with just two words. This is a simple to use, logically worked out, fully rounded program – a must for all story writers, and at such a reasonable price.
 Chris Degenhardt Science-Art Author Artist

All writers who succeed do so because they learn early how to fully develop their work. StoryWeaver is one of the best programs I’ve seen for the task. This is awesome software that covers all the elements of your story. StoryWeaver is a writer’s friend. You can’t do better.
— Carl Hose – The Writer’s Inkwell

I must say, having used other types of writing software, StoryWeaver is simply fantastic. I am looking forward to the completion of my first novel using StoryWeaver.
