Plottr: 3 Favorite Features for Fiction Authors

Kimmy Haggard for New Shelves

I had no clue Plottr existed until I watched a tutorial workshop for the software a few weeks ago. Since then, I have played around with the application and fallen in love.

My Favorite Plottr Tools

Here are three of my favorite tools so far:

  • I have found the Timeline tool allows the author to have a visual idea of how the story should be organized. No more scribbles or messy info storing!
  • The Characters tab is probably my favorite tool. This tool allows me to create each character’s profile, from the hair color to the character’s enneagram profile.
  • For an idea of structure before starting, check out one of the pre-made templates. They give a thorough overview of what should be happening at each point in your timeline.
