You wouldn’t try to build a house without tools—don’t build a story without them either! As both
writing professionals and educators, we took a step back and thought about how we could improve the
Then we developed, tested and perfected our innovative Story Builder, Story
Spinner, templates and curriculum. Now, we can't imagine telling stories or teaching storytelling
any other way. Writing has never been easier!
Optimize your writing process with a unique toolkit
What’s the point of online writing tools anyway? Simply put, they’re meant to make your life easier.
writing instruments like pen and paper (or styli and clay tablets) are good, but they don’t organize
your notes by date, save your work automatically or offer much support when you’re stuck.
said that, if a tool isn’t making your life easier, it’s not doing its job. A feature meant to save
you time in outlining your writing shouldn’t waste more time in the process as you struggle to
understand how it works. To save you that trouble, we put serious thought into our tools to make
sure they're genuinely helpful and intuitive.
Use Prospero to Blast through Your Blocks
Challenges are inevitable throughout the writing process, but we like to think of them as
opportunities. All you need is a little help to push your ideas in the right direction. That’s where
Prospero comes in. Our wiz of a writing helper shows you how to work around blocks to make your
story even stronger.
Perhaps you’re struggling with how to resolve your story’s conflict. Prospero encourages you to move
on to a different element, such as character. Then, while you’re dreaming up your character’s
amazing superpowers—eureka!—you discover a resolution tied into X-ray vision. Wasn't that easy?
Know no Fear! Our Prompt Generators Vanquish Blank Pages
Unsure what to write? Coming up with an idea is the first obstacle many writers face. Don’t
worry; we’ve got several solutions. For example, our story idea generator offers quirky combinations
character, world and theme. With over 9,000 different (and counting) story prompts, the
possibilities are endless.
But that's not all! More fun writing prompts are included on many of our templates and
offered during our occasional thematic challenges. We are bursting with ways to jumpstart your
Use Integrated Templates to Channel Your Ideas into a First Draft
Don't look far and wide for good writing templates—they're right here! Our targeted organizers,
focused on story elements from conflict to theme, put you on the fast track to better writing. Just
fill in the blanks and—voila!—you'll have ideas ready for further development. Warning: side effects
include impeccable organization and an absence of gnarly plot holes.
The best part is that our templates don’t stand alone. All our writing resources have a place within
the Bardsy Method's architecture. For example, you can learn about storyworlds, fill in a
corresponding template or two and, then, move back and forth between your templates and the Story
Editor to finish your masterpiece.
