Part word processor, part database, StoryMill 4 provides every author with the tools essential to writing a best seller: everything from project-wide annotations to centuries-spanning timelines, an industry first. StoryMill introduces aspiring authors to multi-level writing methods of tracking characters, scenes, and locations, while professional writers will appreciate StoryMill's timesaving ability to oversee and manage the full creative process with Smart Views.

“Each time I delve deeper into StoryMill and take more full advantage of its abundant resources, the writing process just gets simpler and simpler.”

New York Times Best Selling Author Ridley Pearson

Built from the ground up for Mac OS X, StoryMill offers an innovative way to channel and fine tune the creative writing process. Although StoryMill provides an impressive array of features to help you write and track the details of your story more effectively, none of them are required!

StoryMill is incredibly flexible: it can simply be a no-nonsense place to write and revise using its distraction-free fullscreen and powerful annotations, or a complete database of every character, location, and scene that makes up your novel.


At one time or another, every writer has experienced the dreaded, “now what do I write?” rut that brings even seasoned writers to their knees. Kiss those days goodbye.

Follow the Contour system and answer just these 4 questions and you’re well on your way to creating a masterpiece: Who is the main character? What is the main character trying to accomplish? Who is trying to stop the main character? What happens if the main character fails?

Unlike other story development systems which are either so complicated that you don’t know where to start or so lightweight as to wonder, “why in the world did I buy this?”, Contour is a must-have for every screenwriter. Using a fill-in-the blanks and intuitive approach, much like a software install wizard, Contour guides you as to what elements need to be part of your story outline – effectively constructing the foundation of your screenplay. In the end, you’re never left to wonder, “what comes next?”

Unlike other story development systems which are either so complicated that you don’t know where to start or so lightweight as to wonder, “why in the world did I buy this?”, Contour is a must-have for every screenwriter.

In the end, you’re never left to wonder, “what comes next?”


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.


Contour was developed in collaboration with Emmy Award-nominated Jeffrey Alan Schechter; Contour is a proven, fill-in-the blanks story development system that has generated millions of dollars worth of writing assignments and script sales. The software uses the same character-based structure that most every blockbuster movies uses to create well-written stories from Fade In to Fade Out. Contour shows exactly what elements need to be in a script, never leaving the question, "what comes next?"

Minimum Theory, Maximum Story

Unlike other story development systems which are either so complicated that you don't know where to start or so light-weight as to wonder, "why in the world did I buy this?", Contour is a must-have for every screenwriter. Taking your idea and using a fill-in-the blanks and intuitive approach, Contour guides you as to what elements need to be part of your story outline - you're never left to wonder, "what comes next?". That's it - fade out, roll credits.

Shhh! It's a Secret!

Contour explains the major storytelling secrets needed to craft a highly marketable movie. Your main character's journey is explained through archetypal themes - the same kind of themes used by most of the top 50 movies that have affected millions of viewers - maybe even you!

Worried about how to start?

Don't be. For many, it's much easier to understand the Contour system by following the breakdown of a successful movie. Contour includes several entire scripts of blockbuster movies dissected through the Contour system. And if you need even more samples of how Contour works, follow Jeffrey Alan Schechter's personal blog as he breaks down current screenplays in Contour.


Persona is an innovative character development tool for fiction writers. 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 kickstart -- get Persona today!
