Story structure is thought organized. The hardest part about writing a story is organizing your ideas & knowing what to write next. Subtext helps with both.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no "one story structure" to rule them all. Structure is a function of intent. A tragedy follows a much different path than a triumph. Subtext helps you transform your intent into definable Storybeats.
You have something you want to say. Why not use it as the foundation for your story? Choose from a collection of 500+ unique individual storyforms, or form your own with the Premise Builder.
While structure follows intent, the indication of form rests in the unique interpretation of the individual artist. Sculpt the Premise to reflect your most imaginative ideas.
Can't find something that fits your story? Submit your own notions of storytelling, and if approved, we'll add it to the global collection of illustrations for future stories. Writers helping writers--it's a beautiful thing.
Shift Storybeats to fit your vision, and Subtext will maintain integrity throughout all your Acts. And don't worry, we won't let you write broken stories.
Want to know the secret to writing meaningful stories? Write different points-of-view from beginning to end, and then worry about what happens when.
Subtext is where you uncover what happens beneath the surface of your story. The actual writing? That happens in your favorite writing app--and Subtext makes sure you know what to write next no matter where you work your magic.
If you're serious about writing meaningful stories, we're serious about supporting you.
