Notes Story Board writing app

Notes Story Board writing app is the latest version!

You are now visiting the site for the original 2010 version of Story Software, Story Lite.
This is the text only version, which is still the most popular. The Story Turbo version with image import, and a few other additional features, came out later.
And the most recent is Notes Story Board, which I made so there was a version with a keyword based name! Because what might Story Turbo be, help for fishes? Or drag racers? (Or drag racing fishes). (Yes I know turbot has a t at the end, this was a joke once).

By the way, there was also a Microsoft Office plugin, that was widely ignored from 2014-2016, so I retired it. So please be clear, we have too many apps. Notes Story Board is the most recent!

Story Turbo is here (it has a useful website with how to write articles) >

I also do a writing advice site at Top Writing Courses >

There are also many Kindle how to write ebooks available here >

The courses there are short and to the point, unlike some others. That is why they are ‘top’ – short and sweet.

Crowd fund your new novel or story this way

One of our occasional writers, Ivy Ngeow, also writes fiction. She has been published and won awards. This might smooth your way to a publishing deal, but the new way involves crowdfunding, or rather, pre-selling enough copies of the book (which is completed). It is set in Chicago, USA, and Macau near Hong Kong, China, and is set in the 80s, with Reagan the untried new president, parallels with Trump there.
Check out her entertaining video here on the Unbound site now >

The pre-sales have to reach a target, such that the publisher (in this case, Unbound, part of Penguin/Random House) can remove any risk. The book is only published when pre-sales have got to a level where they will at least make some profit even if nobody else buys the book. This is like the opposite of an advance, the writer has to do all the marketing and selling to get the book out at all. It seems to work though, as many interesting and successful books have appeared via Unbound.
Unbound have just had a massive hit with The Good Immigrant, a collection of essays about being an immigrant in the UK. And Robert Llewellyn, an actor from the SF series Red Dwarf, has had many novels out through them.
Ivy will be discussing her crowd funding techniques, using Facebook, blogging, email etc, on this site soon.
I am preparing a pitch video for my next novel now!

New app Notes With Links – for Microsoft Office 365 / 2013 – Word, Excel, PowerPoint

This is Story Turbo as an Office app, with extra benefits

April 1 2014: The Notes With Links Office Store page is down for maintenance as the price is changing, this is not as simple as it sounds (this is not a joke btw!). I will email members when the new version is live.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Multi-user
Notes With Links has panels for notes so you can collaborate and share when reviewing a document, or just use them for arrangement. Use for editing with others, marking, commenting, reviewing, sharing. Or just organise your own notes better, using separate panels.

Active reference links
It has active reference links from places in your documents to the particular note.
It works with Word, Excel and (some limits) PowerPoint as a side panel app, and is saved with the document.

Why Story Turbo is the best writing software

“Every writer should know about Story Turbo.”
“By far, the best piece of writing software.”

August 2013

I recently ran a survey (results later this week) and got some very positive feedback.

The quotes are at:

Story Turbo testimonials and feedback >

If you are still using Story Lite, why not try Story Turbo (which has images and more features) since it’s free…

I need your feedback – you are not alone!

I sent out a mail last week with the heading “You are not alone… in using Story Software”.

I am making a all new version 3 of Story Turbo and Story Lite, so I need some feedback.
The survey is here:

Story Software Survey – please spend a few minutes to help get a better app >

Version 3 will probably have a new name and have a mix of desktop and online activities.

If you have done it already and have further comments please use our contact form

I will be posting the results of the survey by next week.

Thanks

New Top Writing Courses site from Story Software

I have put all our member’s only courses onto a new free site called Top Writing Courses > (opens in new window).

This has full courses with exercises by professional authors and scriptwriters. There are also several ebooks available of the courses and some other topics.

More details to follow.

Back to life, back to reality: freeware writing software

I have discontinued Story Lite v2.2 as most people just went for the Story Turbo upgrade (new window) which is same but has Images too.

So the old Story Lite v1.1 freeware is back, this has fewer features but is very usable as a notes writing organizer.

Nag nag nag:
You just have to sign up to download the freeware Story Lite. It still has the old nag screen asking for your email for updates etc, just do that with the same email, will get merged. It is too expensive to recode just for that.
