Get your story into shape. 

You’re an author.

You want to write better stories. So you craft your stories, forming the raw material of your ideas into a narrative.

As an author, a vital task is the creation of the architecture of your story. Only when the narrative structure is sound will the story stand solidly – and only then will your audience want to live in your story world.

Designing a plot that grips the audience, sending them on an emotional journey, and developing engaging fictional characters that feel real is a difficult, time-consuming and hugely complex creative process.

The Beemgee author tool helps you get to grips with your material and form it into a story. It helps you to create a beautiful and accessible outline of your narrative structure, guiding you through the process without ever being prescriptive. It not only gives you the best character sheets to consult when crafting the plot, it also gets you to hone your pitch to a T.

Authors are Storytellers as well as Writers

As an author, you need to compose a strong story in order to write a novel or screenplay that wins over the audience to love your work. Motivated characters lead to compelling plot structure, which enables the emotional engagement of the audience, which means the audience grows.

With the Beemgee CHARACTER developer you develop characters that will be the driving force of your plot. The resulting character sheets are dramaturgical guides for your plotting. Check for contrast and potential conflict between the characters at the level of each single attribute.

In the PLOT-outliner, you organise cards that stand for plot events on a timeline that you arrange into the chronological as well as the narrative order. You enrich these plot event cards by assigning additional details about, for instance, the characters that take part in each event, storylines, recurring motifs, point of view, the essence of this scene, etc. FILTER selected cards to isolate, for example, a single storyline. You can also set markers for act or chapter structure. Export a treatment or manuscript document that contains your entire outline.

In the STEP OUTLINE section you deal with the big questions about your work, such as its theme or central conflict. Above all, this section contains the complete scene by scene description of your plot and allows you to edit it as copy text, the basis for a treatment you can send to a publisher or producer – if you like directly as a Beemgee project or as a PDF.

Working with the Beemgee Author Tool

With Beemgee, beginning authors compose more compelling stories, and professional authors develop their material more efficiently.

The tool helps authors to focus on character motivations and narrative structure. Its clean and clutter-free design enhances creativity and at the same time helps authors maintain a clear overview of all aspects of the story outline.

For anyone learning the craft of writing and storytelling, the Beemgee author tool fosters learning by doing. Unlike with how-to books, with Beemgee you apply what you learn as you learn it to your own material, so it is practical rather than theoretical.

For experienced authors, the tool is an efficient and effective systematic repository of your story before you’ve written it.

Beemgee was developed by experts from the fields of publishing and film, designed by an award-winning UX (user experience) agency, and programmed by a team of dedicated specialists. Beemgee is non-corporate, financed by the founders and business angels.

Beemgee is an internationally recognized toolset for authors and anyone dealing professionally with stories. Whether for page, stage or screen, established or aspiring, if you’re working on a story, Beemgee can help you.

How? Beemgee provides tools for plot-outlining as well as character development that help authors compose better stories. The tools work because they focus on character motivations and narrative structure in the plot.

The result is that the author has a deeper understanding of the story material, has formed the content and brought it into shape, and is therefore able to write it down with greater clarity and precision.

Compose and outline your stories consciously with Beemgee. It’s a revelation. It’s your story.
