Important monthly updates – Time Map – March 2020

Monthly Product Release Update

First of all, stay home and take care of yourselves. We’re doing the same and, for now, our work on the Asengana platform is on schedule.

The Early Adopters period is over. We’re moving to normal subscription. It makes sense to give more free access to our writers, even if it will affect our self-funding plans. We’re bootstrapping, meaning that we build everything with our money and time. We suffer the consequences of the current situation, as does everybody: we work full-time jobs/remote jobs/ we-don’t-know-what-the-future-holds jobs.

The primary plans: polishing the writing and project management platform and building a sales and digital marketing platform for writers are on track. What we’ll delay are the editors and writing contests modules.

Updates:

Time Map

We’re finally revealing Time Map. This is one of the most important analytics tools that you’ll use as a writer. It’s structured as a vertical timeline based on the born/dead dates for your characters and the date for every scene.

Time Map allows to see the flow of events and to notice discrepancies as, for example, if a character died before a scene happens where the same character is you POV. Joking aside, if it’s the ghost of one of your characters it should be defined as a new one. The point of view for somebody from the other side is quite different than the one of the living.

You have a screenshot below of the Time Map for a short story. For a full novel, this tool will be so much more useful and relevant for your work.

Payments

The payments module is live. At one moment we need to charge for the products and services we provide. Even if it will starts 3 months later, we will need money in order to keep building the platform.

 

This is it for March 2020. Thank you. Remember to share the news of the platform with your writer friends and use our Concierge Service Desk for comments and feedback.

Start writing now… or you can spend your time on the couch watching movies based on other people’s books.

Set the foundation for your writing success with a powerful writing and project management software for authors.

Plan and research your book

Keep all your research in one place. Plan your book from idea, outline, synopsis, plot structure to characters and locations’ sensory mapping.

Write your book distraction-free

Use templates to create the entire structure of your book, scene by scene – pre-defined plot points – write and manage your manuscript with enhanced tracking features.

Plan daily and monitor your progress

Real Kanban project management for authors and detailed insight into your character’s journey and the timeline of your story so you can focus and get into your writing mindset in seconds.

Get things done - from idea to eBook

You’ll stop wasting work with endless rewrites and manage better your time and when you’re ready to get your book into the world, you can convert to ePub with one click – ready for publishing.

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.

Plan, write, and finish your book!
