Storybase Writing Software Reviews from Costomer

By J Adams (Ransomville, NY United States)
For what this program does it is very over priced. It may help with some writers block but does not help you organize your plot and how characters interact. It gives you a list of verbs or adjectives and that's about it. Minimal word processing ability

Gets Your Story Moving...
By G. Wilson
I really really REALLY like this software, it really gets me writing. I don't necessarily use the exact or similar stream of ideas, but a combination stream will hold an idea I had and give it some variable directions to go in. It's just fun and adds different perspectives to your work so you're getting input to make your characters and scenes more 3-D.

Awesome tool for writers!
By L. Boudreau
First of all, everyone should know that this software will NOT write your story for you. Rather, it provides a vast library of different possibilities ("conflict situations") which can be personalized with your character names. This is a great tool for exploring new ideas - for an individual scene - and for an overall theme. It also helps in the discovery of character motivations and nuances. This program is fun to use and is a reliable cure for writer's block.

Storybase Saved My Story
By Penny Greenestone (California)
I was struggling with a transitional scene in my novel and getting frustrated by my inability to come up with something brother had given me Storybase for Christmas, so I decided to give it a try... I entered my story and character info and Storybase spit out a bunch of really cool ideas...some I would have never thought of even with a hundred hours of thinking...I found one that was just right for this moment in my story and was able to finally finish the chapter and in doing so gave me a terrific way to start the next scene...I'm now a big fan of Storybase and recommend it to all my writer friends.
