Where are you in the writing process?
Start Writing and Stay Writing.
Get in the flow and get those words on the page. Lightning-fast and intuitive, Papyrus Author provides a user-friendly work surface for a frictionless writing experience. Put tools like our built-in Grammar Checker and Style Analysis to work, or keep things streamlined for optimum focus.
Automatic backups let you retrieve accidental deletions days or even weeks later.
Manage Your Characters and Research
Got a colorful cast? The dedicated character section “My Characters” helps you keep a handle on everyone in your story. Track appearances, traits, and motivations of your protagonists as they evolve. Double-click a name to reveal stats like where and how often that character shows up in the text.
Like a virtual filing cabinet, our research tools save and sort all the legwork that goes into your book project. Drag and drop text or images from your browser into your Papyrus document. Metadata such as access time and URL are automatically saved. Forever, if you want.
Plot Your Ideas with the Thinkboard.
What transforms a mere idea into a great story? Plotting.
The Papyrus Thinkboard puts the power of mind mapping at your fingertips. Move, group, and connect your ideas on screen and watch your imagination take shape. The Thinkboard replaces all those notes and paper scraps cluttering your desk.
