It’s your story.

Outline your plot – develop your characters

The Big Picture

View and understand your plot and characters as never before.

Craft

Add drama and tension to your story by determining the outer and inner motivations of your characters.

Development

See your story structure grow and take shape. Get contextual story development help when you need it.

Your Characters

Find what drives your main characters by identifying their dramatic role in the story.

Answer a series of dramaturgical questions designed to show you:

  • how each character effects the plot
  • what transformation they go through
  • which aspects of characterization are dramatically relevant
  • and much more

Compare and contrast the characters with each other to heighten conflict and tension.

Your Plot

Beemgee helps you plot your story outline. Capture scene ideas on plot event cards; arrange these events chronologically and in the order you want to relate them.

Enrich each plot event with attributes such as:

  • which characters take part
  • which storyline it effects
  • from which point of view it is told
  • and many more

Highlight the distribution of each attribute, e.g. where and how often each character appears. Work on a plot attribute individually, e.g. filter out one storyline at a time.

Your Progress

Note and compare your writing progress with your development process.

Beyond treatment and exposé – a Beemgee project is the clearest way to share the inner workings of your story with a co-author, editor, producer, etc.

No app installation. Access your project from any device – continue working even when you lose your internet connection.

Testimonials

Beemgee has grown from a character development app to a fully fledged plotting tool.

The internal logic of a story is magical, like the structure of a spiders web. Beemgee is a wonderful tool to explore and get to grips with this complexity.

Amos Ponger

Editor and documentary filmmaker / “Two or three things I know about him”

I was surprised how much Beemgee helped us sharpen the profiles of the characters in our game. The easy interface is great, the info tips behind the question marks make it possible for a novice storyteller like me to find out about the basics of storytelling technique. All in all, a very cool tool you’ve built there.

Great for reminding you of the basics, and preventing you from getting bogged down in unimportant details. Beemgee really helps you figure out how your story can be dramatically powerful and make logical sense at the same time.

Screenwriter / Director – “Peppercorns”, “4 against Z”, “How to bake yourself a guy”

Figuring out the plot is not my favourite part of writing. But you can’t write a story without a plot. Beemgee has helped me sort out my ideas and capture moments of inspiration, indeed to overcome writer’s block. It’s an aid to structuring my work, and is highly recommended even for pantsers, those authors who write by the seat of their pants.

It’s genius!
