The trial pro version of StoryShop enabled me to quickly upload some twenty manuscripts from my morgue drawer-some going back 20 years or more.

I am now an enabled, loyal customer with an entirely new lease on my creative and professional work as a writer.

I have connected with StoryShop in a huge way. It took me a few minutes to figure out my way around and now I feel right at home. It is clean, modern and free of distractions. Easy to move around scenes and chapters, or hide them when I just want to write. Thank you for offering this as a Camp NaNo special!
