The Easiest to Use Screenwriting Program

New, from the creator of StoryWeaver, a screenwriting program so easy to use that nothing stands in the way of your creativity.

Between The Lines formats while you write.  Most formatting is automatic, and when your input is required, all you need is a single button click.

Between The Lines makes intelligent page breaks, even adding "MORE" and "CONT'D" when dialog runs past the end of a page.  Plus you can manually adjust any page break as you wish.

Between The Lines has a powerful built-in index card feature!  Each card is linked to your script.  Click and drag the cards to rearrange their order, and the linked text in the script is automatically repositioned as well!

Plus you can create Comment Cards and choose to have their text included or not in the script (delineated in gray to show it isn't part of the screenplay).

Unlike higher-priced screenwriting programs that are cluttered with complicated features you might never use, Between The Lines presents a clean, uncluttered creative environment in which to work.

Bonus features include extensive writing tips, spell checking, auto complete, real-time formatting, export to RTF, text, or PDF format, and much, much more!

Try Between The Lines today.  With our 90 day money-back guarantee, you have nothing to lose but the frustration of trying to format manually, or of using an overly complex program that gets in the way of your creativity.

Key Features

  • Real-time formatting in the background while you write. Nothing stands in the way of your creativity!

About Dramatica and StoryWeaver

What They Do

Dramatica is a tool to help you build a perfect story structure.  StoryWeaver is a tool to help you build your story's world.

Dramatica focuses on the underlying logic of your story, making sure there are no holes or inconsistencies. 

StoryWeaver focuses on the creative process, boosting your inspiration and guiding it to add depth, detail and passion  to your story.

How They Do It

Dramatica has the world's only patented interactive Story Engine™ which cross-references your answers to questions about your dramatic intent, then finds any weaknesses in your structure and even suggests the best ways to strengthen them.

StoryWeaver uses a revolutionary new creative format as you follow more than 200 Story Cards™ step by step through the story development process.  You'll design the people who'll inhabit your story's world, what happens to them, and what it all means.

How They Work Alone

By itself Dramatica appeals to structural writers who like to work out all the details of their stories logically before they write a word.

By itself, StoryWeaver appeals to intuitive writers who like to follow their Muse and develop their stories as they go.

How They Work Together

But, the finished work of a structural writer can often lack passion, which is where StoryWeaver can help.  And the finished work of an intuitive writer can often lack direction, which is where Dramatica can help.

So, while each kind of writer will find one program or the other the most initially appealing, both kinds of writers can benefit from both programs.

Try Either Program Risk Free!

We have a 90 Day Return Policy here at Storymind.  Try either or both of these products and if you aren't completely satisfied we'll cheerfully refund your purchase price.
