StoryMill

Macworld | Review: StoryMill 3.1: "StoryMill 3.1 provides an impressive workflow approach and toolset that can’t be replicated in your current word processor. For former Avenir users, the timeline feature alone is worth the cost of upgrade. If you’re willing to learn and make full use of Mariner Software’s nonlinear database-type approach to structuring and filtering your research, writing, and rewriting, your initial investment will pay big dividends. Of course, John Steinbeck and Kurt Vonnegut never needed specialized software to write the Great American Novel. But if you’re the sort who prefers plotting in a MacBook to jotting in a notebook, odds are StoryMill could prove a real asset in getting your 100,000-word opus onto the printed page."

Mariner Software Announces Contour Story Development App TotallyWrite Acquired and Redeveloped: "-Mariner Software, developers and publishers of professional and personal software, announced today an agreement made with LTW Productions Canada, Inc. to acquire and redevelop TotallyWrite, the popular story development software for Mac OS X. Newly-named Contour, will make its public debut under the Mariner brand with existing content and new features, before the end of 2008. Contour is the latest release in Mariner Software's award-winning line of personal creativity and writing software."
