My many thanks to Roland Clarke for this in-depth review of Fictionary.
When I was approaching the final third of my fourth rewrite of Fates Maelstrom, I felt that I had ‘lost the plot’. I wasn’t sure what to do until I was introduced to the online editing tool Fictionary by their CEO and lead developer, mystery writer Kristina Stanley who said it might help.
Although my draft wasn’t finished, the rewrite in Scrivener had the final third of draft three as guide notes. Fictionary showed me how to create and upload a docx file from Scrivener.
From that file, Fictionary automatically generated the following overviews:
- Story Arc
- Word Count per Scene
- Scenes per Chapter
- Characters per Scene
- Scenes Per Character
- Point of View
Before I could start using the editing features, I was prompted to confirm my cast of thousands – well almost two hundred. Many of these were characters mentioned but who never appeared like ancestors and other relations.
