Final Deadline is for writers - any writers, from professionals to hobbyists to wannabes. If you have ever even thought about boldly putting pen to paper, then we have your back.

Final Deadline makes tools, apps, exercises and services to assist with every aspect of writing. Our single goal is to get all the stories in your head down on to paper.








While we offer all sorts of tools - anything we can do! - we consider our Deadline tracker service to be the most important for serious writing projects.

Without question, the best way to get something done is to set a time limit. Sometimes an external target is all you need. Even if all it does is force you to compromise on perfection and just come up with something. The goal of Final Deadline is to help keep you motivated, prevent you giving up, and support you throughout the process of getting your book written.

You create a writing project by setting yourself a target and a deadline here. Then just start writing! Final Deadline has no prescribed conditions - you work in your own time, in your own way.

Final Deadline keeps track of where you are in your project, and where you should be. You can instantly see how you're doing through your Project Page. It remembers all the little details, providing you with weekly and daily targets to keep you on schedule. Final Deadline will organise the workload for you, so you don't have to think about anything except what to write next.

Check in routinely and Final Deadline can more accurately monitor your progress; it can even start sending you gentle prompts if you begin to underperform, and will remind you if you forget about your project for any length of time.








Final Deadline was started by Tobias Showan during his last year at university. It was created when he became enthused with writing after joining the local students' Creative Writing Society.

The intention of the company is to promote writing, ensure the next generation has a healthy crop of good books to read, and to recreate the atmosphere of a quaint student club even after all its members have moved on to new lives outside of the university.

We also want to have fun! We love the idea of creating new tools to tackle writer's problems in a more imaginative way. We think technology has limitless potential to better our lives in countless ways - and it's our job to find out what those are.

We're coming up with new ideas all the time - good ones and bad ones, we'll try them all - and we're always keen to hear other people's input. If you have any cool new concepts, suggestions or comments about the site, we want to hear all about them!

Find us on Facebook and let us know what you think!



Together, we'll get that story written.
