The #1 Novel Writing Software

NovelCreator™ is the only novel-writing software that shows you how to plot, outline and write your novel with techniques used by top, bestselling professionals. It is based on The Marshall Plan® For Novel Writing (Writer’s Digest, 1998), Evan Marshall’s groundbreaking international bestseller that revolutionized fiction writing and went on to become a classic—a staple on hundreds of thousands of writers’ reference shelves. The Marshall Plan® demystified novel-writing for a massive audience and became the industry’s #1 go-to novel-writing technique for anyone who wants to write a commercial novel—fast.

A Key Technique

NovelCreator™ shows you how to tell a story through a set of viewpoint characters (“viewpoint writing”). This concept is key in creating successful fiction, yet most beginners know nothing about it because, amazingly, it is rarely taught in writing classes or mentioned in writing manuals. NovelCreator™ makes it easy and fun to structure your novel using this method.

Create Your Novel with a Click

Just tell NovelCreator™ what kind of novel you want to write—romance, mystery, thriller, horror, science fiction, fantasy, it’s up to you—and NovelCreator™ gets to work, advising you about word length and your major characters. The software provides templates for 138 different genres and subgenres—or you can simply enter the word length of the novel you want to write. Once you’ve made your creative decisions, NovelCreator™ instantly sets up your novel’s template, complete with the recommended number of viewpoint characters for your novel, the exact number of scenes you need, and all key plot points in their correct positions in the story. Now you have a solid framework for your creative storytelling to turn into a publishable novel.

Complete Creative Freedom and Flexibility

NovelCreator™ gives you complete freedom. Follow The Marshall Plan© system . . . or not. It’s up to you. Customize. Change your novel’s word length. Add, remove or edit characters. Add, remove or rearrange scenes. No work is ever lost because scenes can be placed in the Storage Area in case you want to pull them back in later.

Once you’ve outlined your novel, move to the Manuscript area and turn your outline into text. NovelCreator™ keeps track of your word length within each scene so you stay on target. When you’re finished, you can export your manuscript to your favorite word processor.

A Robust Package

Built into NovelCreator™ are two free eBooks: The Marshall Plan© for Novel Writing, the book that started it all, and Fiction Makeover, a book of easy insider tips for polishing your fiction using classic techniques. The two books alone are a $25 value.

The Marshall Plan© software has been for sale and continuously updated and improved for more than a decade, helping thousands of writers create and sell their projects and become happier, more productive, more financially successful—and yes, bestselling novelists.

NovelCreator™ turns writers into authors. Invest in your talent, in your career, with the software that has become a secret weapon for so many authors.

Now with more features and tools, powerful flexibility and a new lower price, NovelCreator™ means novel writing.

“I have found your software to be very easy to use and yet very intense. What you have over Scrivener and over other book writing software is your templates and tutorials, and the flexibility to follow or break from them. This aspect may not seem significant at face value, but I find your templates and tutorials double the competitive value of your novel development software.”

The National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) 50,000 word November 30 finish line is in my rearview mirror and, thanks to The Marshall Plan® Software, I crossed this year limp free. While the software did not ease the pain of getting my butt in the seat and typing every day, it did keep me on track. Not once did a face a single page, staring, dry-mouthed, and wondering, now what?

After watching the videos I can say even before trying the new software, this version is going to be a winner! So happy to see the new modifications and updated user interface.

Thanks to the old program, I already have more than 50 books published, so I can’t wait to see what I can do with the new one 🙂

I was one of many aspiring writers who had grappled for years to complete a manuscript without success. I’d start a book full of hope only to lose my way a few weeks later and give up. My hard drive was full of false starts and orphaned chapters. Then one afternoon I was browsing through my local bookstore and found The Marshall Plan® for Novel Writing. Now, not only have I completed close to twenty novels, but I’ve also had two bestsellers for my publisher! Thanks, Evan Marshall, I couldn’t have done it without you!

The Marshall Plan® for Novel Writing is in my opinion one of the best books ever written for fiction writers. I have recommended it, both in speeches and interviews, for several years now. That book helped me make my dream come true: to be a full time writer.
