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.

Figuring out the plot is not my favourite part of writing. But you can’t write a story without a plot.

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.
