There’s more on the way

Future Features

We have many features planned. Here are the 3 at the top of our list. All 3 will be a guaranteed FREE update.


Characters (Live)

Create bios for your characters. You can organize them in groups or simply have a long list. Add your characters to the scenes they’re a part of.



Easily keep track of all your storylines. Simply add a storyline and write a short description. Like characters, tags can be added to relevant scene cards.

Filter Black


Use the filter function to sort your scenes by the characters and tags you’ve added to them. This way you can focus on a single character or storyline.


How many computers can I install the software on?

We know many writers may have both a laptop and a desktop, which is why we allow you to install the software on 2 computers at a time.

Do I need an internet connection?

You generally don’t need an internet connection to use Storywriter Pro. There are, however, some situations where you do:  Activating/deactivating your license, exporting, checking for updates, and updating the software.

Are updates free?

Yes, but… We want to keep updates free in general. This is only possible as long as we get new customers coming in. So, you know, spread the word.

While we do want to keep updates free, we do reserve the right to charge for any future versions/updates.

I have both a Mac and a Windows computer. Do I need to buy two licenses?

No. You can activate your Storywriter Pro license on two computers regardless of OS.

I've lost my license key. What should I do?

Get in touch with us and we’ll see if we can help you out.

Can I try the software before I buy?

Yes. Just download the software from this site and give it a go. The demo version can’t export and has a limit of 3 chapters and 9 scenes. There are no time restrictions and no credit card is required.

When you’re ready for the full version, you can buy a license and enter it into the software to unlock it.
