So far we talked about what we can do for you.

You’re here because you have a story to share so others can enjoy the products of your imagination and learn from your experience.

While we can help you become a better writer, you are the one doing the writing. Since you don’t want to be the author of one of the 80% of published books where readers don’t read pass page 5, you can choose to do something about it.

Writing Software 17

Let’s talk about what you can do for yourself.

There are hundreds of thousands of writers published or self-published on Amazon and other book sellers’ platforms.

You can finish your book and beat the competition. Plan and structure it well. Write every day. Other authors may be more experienced than you are, but they will never outwork you if you don’t let them. That’s the one thing you can control.

Your writing sessions just got FASTER, EFFICIENT, and more PRODUCTIVE with the Asengana Writing Platform.

  • Daily planning with a Kanban Board allows you to focus on the number of scenes you plan to write in a day.
  • Refreshing your memory about the characters, locations, settings and place in the timeline of a scene takes minutes.
  • You can write in smaller writing sessions. We’ve seen writers get more done in a day by setting 35-45 minutes aside and writing one scene, around 900 words, three times per day.

The cornerstone of any writing project

It takes more than a proficient writing process to turn a blank page into a novel.

It’s a journey from a writer distracted by the use of multiple tools – for writing, time and project management – to being an author capable to plan efficiently and write multiple books at the same time using one platform.
