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.
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.
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.
