What people are saying

Plottr is an amazing program that has become an integral part of my planning and record keeping process. Not only do I use it to plot, but also as a series bible so I have series details easily organized and at my fingertips. PLUS the developer is super responsive and open to suggestions which is hard to find nowadays. LOVE Plottr!

I absolutely love this program. It makes my outlining so much easier, helps me get through the outline process faster, and has a ton of great features that just make the whole process more enjoyable. Love it!


A perfect way to organize a million swirling thoughts about a story. Great layout. Super excited to keep working with it.

Finally writing software that works the way I think. Thank you for making this!
