Nimble Writer is a general-purpose tool for writing stories, be it short fiction stories or even complete novels or books. It focuses on being distraction-free, simple, and fully customizable.
If you are used to writing stories in applications such as Word or other regular office tools, you'll find that Nimble Writer will be able to help you organize bundles of stories and notes together much simpler and faster. In addition, Nimble Writer is able to import some of those old documents and convert them into the Nimble Writer format.
Nimble writer was built with a few principles that help it stand out:
Writing without distractions or worrying about formatting.
Stay more organized with many useful organizational features.
Materials of reference (such as photos, drawings, scribbles of text, character information, and much more) are available at your fingertips.
Don't have any limitations to the default array of features. This means full customization, with a fully customizable and scriptable interface. Turn off features you don't need, change the entire look and feel of your writing environment, and much more.
Traditional writing software such as Word, Open Office or Google Docs are made just for the purpose of writing, so they don't have anything that helps story writers manage their notes and reference material, and neither does it offer much customization. They don't have any kind of chapter management either. Nimble Writer has all of those things, making it a much more productive choice for story writing.
With Nimble Writer's presence on Steam it can use the power of Steam's platform, such as Steam Cloud. This means that you will be able to save your stories and notes entirely on Steam's cloud servers, so that you can load up your stories on another computer as well, just as easily!

The roadmap offers a step by step guide to take you through the various stages of writing a novel, from coming up a with a robust premise, to fleshing it out into a solid skeleton, to creating objective orientated scenes, to developing your characters, to developing themes and through the various stages of drafting. It even helps out with submitting to agents and publishers."
"Character Development Section:
The Novel Factory has a special section designed specifically for keeping track of characters and all their foibles. The character files come equipped with areas to keep track of all their basics statistics, as well as more detailed questionnaires, character development technique assistance, history notes, and even a character viewpoint synopsis (read more about that below).
A great feature is also being able to add multiple images of your character, which can be added from our library or from your own computer."
"Character Viewpoint Development:
The Character Viewpoint Synopsis feature is a fantastic way of ensuring your characters are fully fleshed out and have their own lives throughout the novel, rather than just popping into existence when they have a scene ‘on stage’. The novel writing software allows you to write out what each character is up to during every scene, rather than only ever looking at it from the Point of View Character’s, well.. point of view.
This is invaluable for developing realistic details and three dimensional characters, and has been mentioned as one of our software’s most useful unique features."

Characters and stories planner
Welcome to Persona. No matter if you’re a Mac or a Win user, Persona will help you create the strongest character possible.
Packed inside Persona are archetypal themes—good guys and bad guys. These archetypes are described in detail: personality traits, qualities, flaws, background, occupations, and how they interact with other personalities. Whether your character is a brainiac talking fish or an outcast orphanage owner, Persona helps you explore how each one’s unique psychology and background influence their dealings and dialogue. We’ve even made it possible for you to see what happens if your character becomes corrupt and turns from hero and heroine into villain or villainess.
The archetypes in Persona consist of 16 male and 16 female personalities, each group broken down into heroes, heroines, villains and villainesses. There’s the Action Figure, who will get the job done no matter the cost, or the Companion, a caring and selfless man. When the Action Figure loses his moral compass, he turns into the Brute, ruthless and argumentative, easily despised. The Companion, when depraved, becomes the Opportunist, betraying trust and taking advantage of others. Then there’s the Caregiver, empathic and nurturing, but when corrupted she becomes the Distracted Mother, antagonistic and disinterested.
Don’t be fooled by Persona’s spartan looks. Both the Mac and Windows version is designed to keep you focused on the task of developing your character. You can create Smart Groups based on attributes like tags, type, sex, or any word or phrase from your notes. If you’re not sure how your characters will fit together, you can construct ad hoc groups of characters without a defined relationship, in order to explore interactions. We’ve included a Names database with over 16,000 names and their origins that you can select from, or you can add your own.
Persona is an innovative character development tool for fiction writers. Persona aids you in crafting archetypal themed characters and plots by using time-honored psychological principles to describe the motivations and interactions between different characterizations of people. Whether your story's hero is a brainiac talking fish or your villainess is an outcast orphanage owner, Persona helps you explore how each character's unique psychology and background influences their dealings and dialogue. Readers long for engrossing, character-driven narratives, but even the most experienced storytellers struggle to create strong, compelling characters. Persona is a unique and inspiring app that helps you organize and centralize your character data. Categorize characters by archetypes, fill in crucial background data, and more. If lack of inspiration is hurting your craft, you need a creative kick-start.
