Motif has completely changed the way I write. Previously, I wrote my manuscripts in Pages—just one never-ending document. Now, I can see all of my chapters listed separately and easily rearrange them or jump to specific scenes. The notes feature and word count goal tracker are also must-haves!

Motif is a lifesaver. Gone are the endless word documents with various titles and folders trying to organize my research. This website is world-building made easy. I love the Plan section and the Story Elements. These tools provide virtual post-its that are easy to read and find information at a glance. I highly recommend this convenient, user friendly tool that makes the writing process painless.

I needed a place to organize all the short stories I’d written and Motif made it easy. I was able to write and edit all in one place. I even put together a book proposal and got in touch with an agent!
