Sunnyvale, California – May 27, 2008 – Creating a novel or screenplay is a journey, not a race to “The End”. To help Mac users take the wheel of their own writing projects, Storyist Software, a developer of creative writing tools for Mac OS X, has created Storyist, a powerful story development tool for novelists and screenwriters.

“There are as many approaches to writing as there are writers,” says Steve Shepard, CEO of Storyist Software. “But whether you start a project by developing a detailed outline or by simply jumping in and pouring words onto the page, Storyist has the tools to take you from initial idea through submission-ready manuscript or screenplay.”

Storyist provides a word processor with the features writers expect from a top-notch writing program, including spelling and grammar checking and a page layout view with support for headers, footers, and style sheets. It also provides a number of features not found in typical word processing applications and screenplay formatters. These include:
• The Storyboard–Allows writers to map out their story with virtual index cards displayed on a digital corkboard, where they can view, edit and rearrange both scenes and plot points. Writers can also create a more visual writing experience by incorporating photographs from a personal collection or from Websites like Flickr™ and Google™ Images.

• Story Sheets–Helps writers refine story elements such as plot, character, and location, with customizable forms tailored for novel writing and screenwriting.

• The Project Manager –Keeps all writing (manuscript and notes) organized and accessible.


• Wiki Links–Allows writers to link their notes to pages on the Internet and to other notes in the project.

• Project Templates–Gets writers up and writing quickly; they can also create their own templates to use on other projects or share with a writers’ group.

Storyist is compatible with Mac OS X v10.4 and higher. The download-only version is priced at $59.00 and a download + CD version is $69.00. Both are available through the company’s online store located at www.storyist.com/store. Additionally, a 15-day free trial is also available via the Storyist Software website located at www.storyist.com.
