Why Choose LivingWriter?


The Short Answer

LivingWriter takes the best of what other writing apps have to offer and takes it to the next level. Our solution scales with the times and importantly, scales with your needs. The ideas for LivingWriter came from writers just like you and continue to be molded by writers, just like you.



The Best Writing App for Fiction

Are you on track to be the next J.K Rowling?


We’d like to think that if the genius behind Harry Potter used an app to write her books, it’d be LivingWriter. Check out the notes J.K. Rowling made plotting Harry Potter. Hurts our head following it too.

If you’re a world-builder like she is, LivingWriter can take each one of your magical plot points and organize them neatly into outlines, chapters and subchapters. Each chapter of your book will have sections for descriptions and notes that you could scribble all over. You can refer back and instantly change your plot points the same way the Mother of Wizards used her pen to scratch out words.


The Best Writing App for Pantsers

Want to write horror like Stephen King?


The master of horror is also the most vicious proponent of the Rowling type of writing method. Stephen King doesn’t plot at all, he knows the general idea of his book and just goes for it. This is similar to what George RR. Martin does which leads us to still not having the final book of Game of Thrones (as of writing).

If you’re a pantser (a writer that flies by the seat of their pants) like these guys are and don’t care about organization, LivingWriter can help you there too. Our editor is top notch and if you don’t want to use our cooler features like story elements, autosuggest, etc. Then you can use our editor as is with automatic continuous cloud sync and versioning.



The Best Writing App for World-Builders

Do you churn out fantasy worlds like Brandon Sanderson?


LivingWriter gives you the ability to add all your crazy characters, fantastic environments and magical objects into your story before you put down a word. If you’re a manic world-builder, this is the perfect app for you.

Using the magic of story elements, you can have your book come to life. You can even make story elements to put in all the research you’ve been compiling about cultures, places and things.


Best Writing App for Non-Fiction

Or are you more grounded in reality?


LivingWriter isn’t only made for fiction. I’ve found that it works just as amazingly for writing non-fiction, too. I used LivingWriter to publish my first book How To Lose Weight, Without Losing Your Mind, and for all of my nutrition articles. Writing non-fiction requires tons of planning and research, made incredibly simple with the easy to access notes, story elements, and drag and drop chapter and subchapter features in LivingWriter.

We also now have tons of new non-fiction templates for you to use, including Memoirs, Self-help, and Biographies!



We’ll Help You Get There

Whatever type of writer you want to be, we’ll help you get there.

LivingWriter is ever evolving and updating (rarely changing). We listen to the suggestions of our writers and implement things quickly and intuitively. If the way you write doesn’t influence the direction LivingWriter grows, then we’re not doing our job right.





LivingWriter is free to start, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
