Scrawl is our new writing app, designed around elements of psychology and gameification. Scrawl is optimised to suppress your inner editor and make you write - prolifically.




Use Scrawl's Taskmaster feature and the program forces you to concentrate on what you're doing - drift off for too long and it screams at you!


Know Thyself is a guided writing exercise designed to get you well and truly into the mind of your characters.



Use it to plan beforehand or as a thinking aid when you hit a wall. Or simply load it up as a break from actual writing.






Make your book into an official project on Final Deadline. Check in routinely with your work so far and Final Deadline will record your progress and keep you on track.





Use Final Deadline's flexible tracker to work in the way you prefer - you can even use old fashioned pen and paper!


Final Deadline counts your words (no one sees your actual work) and uses this to track your progress and keep tabs on how it's going.


Then use the Final Deadline Facebook app to let people know how much you achieved today!




Check in at any time to see a complete breakdown of your deadline: the progress you've made so far, how much is still to do, and all the milestones you have along the way.


Final Deadline provides a whole selection of tools to keep you focussed and keen.


Don't think you'll meet your deadline? We will break it down into daily bitesize chunks, and email you to keep you on track.







Use our Forgotten Words app to remind yourself why you even started out. Resuscitate your early enthusiasm and give yourself a second wind!






Our Sharp Edge service forces you to write at knifepoint. First you'll be terrified, and then you'll be astounded at what you achieve.

Our Critique app allows direct, immediate, line-by-line feedback and suggestions. Your editors can show support for individual turns of phrase, or highlight specific spelling and grammar mistakes without having to remember line numbers.



You don't have to sit there on your own: write in the Workshop together with other enthusiasts in a busy, collaborative atmosphere and get the benefit of each others' attention and experience. You can choose to work in public or share only with fellow writers.


You have stories in your head that no one else can see.
Today is the day to write them down.
