Dabble organizes your manuscript, story notes, and plot. Dabble simplifies story, leaving more room in your brain to create, which is what being a writer is really about.
If you’re sick of using sticky notes, plotting on a piece of paper, and using the same word processor you use for writing letters to you mum, then you’re going to love Dabble.
Dabble was created with two main tenets—Simplicity and Organization. Other tools are either way too complicated and require a course to teach you how to use them...or too elementary lacking basic tools and organization. That's where Dabble shines!
Shape your story with Dabble’s unique plotting tool. Plot the same way Harry Potter was plotted with plot lines in a grid to supercharge your plotting.
Set up the events in each subplot to happen at the right time in your story.
Write detailed notes on each plot point in your plot lines.
Track your character arcs and stories clues for each scene.
Keep plotting, writing, and editing wherever you are. Write in the desktop app on your Mac or Windows computer at home. Write in the browser during your lunch break at work. Write offline at the cabin over the weekend. And now, write on your tablet or mobile device!
Sync your novel up to the cloud and between devices. Dabble keeps a full copy on each device and one in the cloud with extra backup. These copies sync with each other whenever they are online.
Use Dabble’s web app (app.dabblewriter.com) on any computer, Windows, Mac, Chromebook, and Linux. No waiting for the latest on your computer. Dedicated desktop apps for Mac and Windows are also available for download on our downloads page.
The full Dabble app is now available on your mobile or tablet device at app.dabblewriter.com and you can even install the web app to your home screen! Sync to & from your computer just works, no workarounds or setup required.
Dabble helps you set and keep goals.
Dabble will auto-calculate your daily word count goal, based on how many writing days are left before your goal deadline.
You may not be able (or want to) write every single day. Dabble allows you to mark the days you are taking off so it can accurately track your daily word goal.
Set a goal that is right for you, and set a starting count to only track new words. Set your goal to 20,000 words on top of the 80,000 you already have.
While keeping things as simple as they can be, Dabble still manages to provide so much more.
Highlight, comment, add sticky notes, label scenes, and use the built-in grammar/style checker or the contextual thesaurus. They’re there when you need them, out of the way when you don’t. And, a one-click export to industry standard manuscript format.
Write your book with a friend or colleague. Use all the tools Dabble has to offer, together.
Add a photo to a character profile, attach a book cover image, or insert an image to the start of a chapter. Works offline as well as online.
Continue receiving updates as Dabble is improved and enhanced. We promise, we will work to keep it simple.
