Software Designed for Writers – Writer’s Helper

Do you have trouble organising your ideas or structuring your story?

Do you have notes, ideas and plans for your story scattered everywhere on little pieces of paper?

Are you wasting precious writing time trying to sort through multiple notes just to figure out where your story is and where it needs to be?

Writer’s Helper stores all your information and keeps it sorted in relevant sections. You can move plots and subplots around each other, and keep track of your characters and settings easily. The software even generates a graph, so you can monitor tension rises and falls within your story.

All the information that goes into formulating a story is stored in the one file and can be easily retrieved. The collated information can be printed, so writers can work from a hard copy while they are creating, or the information can be viewed on your computer.

About Writer’s Helper

Writer’s Helper was designed to help writers structure their ideas and plot out their storylines. The software stores all your characters, settings, storylines, and more under a story title file. It can store multiple stories structures no matter if they are short stories or novels. Simply open the software, and select whichever story you want to work on.

While it has not been designed to replace your favourite word processor where you create your story, Writer’s Helper is an invaluable tool to be used in conjunction with your chosen processor.

Its functions aid you while structuring your ideas and plotting out many storylines of any length. Writer’s Helper emphasises on constructing and cultivating storylines, and developing characters and settings.

Without annoying and long-winded introductions or overdone graphics to slow the process down, it’s ideal for writers who want to roll up their sleeves and get on with the job.

The software doesn’t limit you to restrictive templates like some programs or force you to follow a particular format. It’s completely up to you how you structure your stories, which means the ideas are yours and not computer-generated.

The Writer’s Helper User Manual helps you to utilise the software; however, it also contains tips on writing, so keep a copy handy and add it to your personal reference library.
Get organised with this user-friendly software and spend your time productively writing.
