What is Storyspace?

Storyspace is a hypertext writing environment, especially well suited to creating large, complex, and challenging hypertexts.

Storyspace is designed for the process of writing. Where other systems often emphasize visual presentation, Storyspace emphasizes writing, linking, and organizing. Storyspace creates and follows links quickly and directly.

Each place in a Storyspace hypertext is a writing space. Writing spaces contain text, pictures, and other media. To link two writing spaces together, just draw a line between them.

For working with hierarchical structure, you can drag writing spaces inside other writing spaces to organize and reorganize your writing.

Storyspace gives authors and readers multiple ways of viewing and mapping the hypertext, to see both the hierarchical structure and the links. Charts, outlines, and maps are instantly available. You can keep many views open at once.

Storyspace creates hypertexts that you are free to publish or redistribute without royalty, and also exports to the Web. It is an ideal storyboarding tool for all interactive media.

Using Storyspace, you can create all the links you want with unprecedented freedom. Make links with just a click of the mouse -- then use Storyspace's tools to organize and link complex information. When you are done, Storyspace can translate your document into HTML, ready to use with other Web tools or to upload to your server.
