    • Character Builder: Develop personalities by discovering a character's unique flaws, motivations, and relationships. Use to create well-rounded, multidimensional characters audiences relate to, empathize with, and ultimately care about. 
        • Backstory Builder: Explore the life experiences that shape characters and influence their actions and decisions within your story. Use this to develop a deeper understanding of character motivation and reactions within scenes.

        • Dialogue Tools: Discover a wide range of features that present you with vocabulary lists and explore patterns of speech based on age, education, and backstory. A cheat sheet for writing "realistic" dialogue that will enhance the authenticity of your characters.

        • Goal Builder: Discover and build the driving force behind your character's actions and decisions in your story. Well-defined goals engage audiences and provide a clear direction for your plot.

        • Idea Vault®: When you hear a bit of dialogue, think of a character name, or have any tiny glimmer of an idea but don’t quite know what it is yet, put it here! Forget cocktail napkins & emails to yourself; keep all of your story bits safe in your Idea Vault.

        • Obstacle Builder: Develop challenges for characters to overcome by creating physical, emotional, or relational barriers that hinder them from achieving their goals. These speed bumps create drama while forwarding the narrative.

        • Character Clash: Develop complex characters with distinct personalities and motivations to craft authentic, satisfying conflicts. When you pit characters against one another, you drive your plot forward with opposing traits and goals.

    • Name Generator: Choose unique names that fit your characters by considering their age and gender, as well as your project's time period and setting. The right name can go a long way toward creating memorable characters. learn more

    • Age Calculator: a quick tool to help you determine a character's age based on their birth year or age and the year the story takes place. Setting a specific age helps with consistency and accuracy in character development.

    • Project Viability Calculator: Analyze your project's genre, target audience, budget, and marketability to estimate its potential success. Use this to determine if your script is doomed before you start writing (because its scope and earning potential don't match).

    • Beat Calculator: Guide your screenplay's structure by breaking it down into Acts and make plans for the timing and pacing of each major beat. Knowing where beats should hit ensures that your story flows smoothly.
