Writing Ninja's Story Development Tools

Just some of the things in our game-changing software 😉

    • Logline Generator: Create a concise summary that captures the essence of your screenplay in just 1-2 sentences. Used to generate interest in your project.

    • Treatment Template: Summarize your story, characters, and plot points in a concise (yet comprehensive!) way to highlight all necessary beats. It's like a blueprint for your screenplay.

    • Beat Sheets: Break down your story's moments and ensure you have a strong structure and pacing by identifying key plot points and character arcs. This keeps you on track and focused while writing.

    • World Builder: Create detailed, immersive worlds by developing the setting, culture, history, and rules for your project. This makes rich, diverse settings for your stories that feel authentic and engaging.

    • Character Database: create and manage character roles, backstories, and traits

    • 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.

        • 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.

    • 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.

    • Comparable Movies: Identify movies in the same genre or style and analyze their structure, character development, and thematic elements. Their strengths and weaknesses can inform your story choices.

    • Writing Roadmap: Map out the critical elements of your story, including character arcs, plot structure, and themes to stay organized and focused as you write. Use to save time and energy, avoid common pitfalls, and create a coherent, emotionally resonant story

    • Story Outline: Discover all necessary beats for your story, including...

      • Inciting Incident
      • Conflict & Raising Stakes
      • Plot Points
      • A & B Storylines
      • Theme
      • Plot Twists

    • 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).

    • Idea Generator: Click-n-pick to discover fresh and creative story concepts, premises, and characters for new projects. Get inspired, kick writer's block, and generate compelling new story ideas for your screenplays.

    • 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.
