  • Introduction

    How can you go from a basic idea to a finished story? How can you avoid writers block and finish your story faster?  The answer is that you create a story structure that will guide your writing.


    Story Companion will help you create this structure. It is not a word processor (even if some basic word process functions are included) – it’s a story processor!


    It has all the tools for putting your story together and it can help you with all the important ingredients needed for a good story!


    If you don’t know any story telling theory, or are unsure of how to continue, you can always access help, examples and step by step guides from inside the program. You can also download and use Story Companions free Story Guide that is streamlined with the Story Companion software to go from basic idea to a fully grown story.


    For those used to storytelling theory you will find all the familiar areas for dealing with synopsis, characters, roles, settings, genre, theme, ideas, back story and, of course, your story structure. No theory is forced upon you but you use only the parts you feel are helpful.

  • Layout & Structure

    The Story Companion is divided into seven tabs - Start, Story, Background, Characters, Places, Ideas and Tools - where each tab represent one area of story information.


    In each tab you have text input areas where you can fill in information about different subjects.


    All major writing areas can also be maximized, for an more unobtrusive writing  experience, by pressing + above the writing area. After maximizing an area just press - to get the area back to normal size.


    You can always get specific help and basic theory guidance by pressing ? by any writing area. There are also step-by-step guides and more help to get by pressing the Get more help! Button in any help window or by pressing the HELP! Button in the Tools tab.


    In the Tools tab you will find ways for searching your story, customizations of the the program and exporting what you have written.

  • First step

    The first step is simple: create a new story in the Start tab and then name it and save it. Now the story will appear in your Story collection (your saved stories). The Start tab is the general overview of your story.


    Now you can go to the Tools tab and change the appearance of Story Companion to get the look you want it to have. Set color and graphical theme, fonts and font size (this will be the font and size of the texts you write).


    If you have a basic idea of what your story is about write it down in the Synopsis text area in the Start tab - this will be the starting point of your story creation.


    Here you can also set Genre and Theme for your story. If you are not sure about synopsis, genre or theme you can always leave them empty and come back later.


    If you feel unsure about any concept you can always press ? to get an explanation .

  • Workflow

    The goal is to use Story Companion to create a blueprint of the story you want to tell. You achieve this by looking at your starting idea and, step by step, fleshing it out until you have a fully described story. The created blueprint is then used to write your story.


    You start by writing down a few sentences about your basic story idea - this will produce a general overview of your story. If you need help with how to construct your idea Story Companion will provide ideas, theory and guides at a click of a button.


    Later you break down your general idea into a start, a middle and a beginning and you write a few sentences about each part. Now you will have a first crude structure of what will take place in your story.


    Now have a look at the sentences you have written about the start of your story. You break down this start part into more detail by dividing it into a start part, one or more middle parts and an ending part - writing a few sentences about each part. Now you will have a better description of what will happen in the beginning of your story.


    You continue this process of fleshing out your story, a few sentences at a time, until you have a structure that perfectly describes your story.


  • ...and then?

    After finishing your story structure, in Story Companion, it is time to start writing your story.


    Your story structure will tell you what will happen in all the parts of your story. You will have set up characters, settings, conflicts, goals and reasons. You have made sure that there are no inconsistencies and that any theme and genre is shown - you will have a blueprint of what to write!


    You can write you story in Story Companion or export it to an external word processor (where you use the structure in Story Companion as a step by step guide of what to write).


    You will find writing so much easier if you have a structure than without one!


    So what are you waiting for? We know that you have a story that you want to tell!
