What People Are Saying

“The ‘Writer’ template is a literal lifesaver. I discovered it through a writing coach’s page and now I’m obsessed with it. Its diverse features makes it easy for me to organize my books. It’s amazing how I can outline my story and see its progress. It makes planning easier and for me, as someone who is always getting overwhelmed with ideas, the template has also helped me be more structural about it.”


“I love that this doesn’t make you feel like you have to work on a specific project. It just says “Hey, just write”. The minimalistic style is so aesthetically pleasing too. “


“Very nice!! Takes all of the work out of setting up my first novel! Thank you!”
