Reviews from writers who Dabble

I wanted to thank you again for providing the interface and functionality I wanted. Scrivener was too complex and syncing was fraught with peril. Novlr lost my stories.

— Lorene

I’m getting addicted to using Dabble. Thanks!!

— Natasha

I have long loved Scrivener. Compared to Word or Google Docs, it’s so much easier to create and reference characters, outlines, and worldbuilding in a dedicated novel writing software. Dabble is so much better than Scrivener. Scrivener has everything. It really does. But it is confusing, and clunky. Dabble has everything I need for creating and writing my stories (fantasy novels, which need a LOT of notes), without anything I don’t. It’s simplistic in the best way, and it’s gorgeous to boot. The plot grid may have blown my mind. I have never been so excited about outlining in my life. All in all, I love Dabble and I hope it sticks around for a looooong time, because I never want to write with anything else!

I have been very much enjoying the experience. The NaNoWriMo integration is amazing.

— Danielle

I downloaded the trial offer and quickly decided to use the monthly paid subscription service. Dabble is a very powerful writing tool. As with any software program, there is a learning curve. The programmers at Dabble have done everything possible to make that learning curve as short as possible. The interface is quite intuitive. That combined with the unparalleled support caused me to know this was the tool for me. And that was after evaluating several others. Get it. Use it. Enjoy an enriched personal life with a journal, or explore the path of getting your book published. Either way, you will be the better for using Dabble.

— Latara

The fact that Dabble has a web interface and online sync was the clincher for me.

— Caden

I am really enjoying the program so much. I love that I can work in the webapp even if I’m not online.

— Sander

I really like the simplicity of the structure of this programme. And I’m clearly not a programme person. I’ve taught Writing and it just matches how my brain works.

— Christine

So far it has been wonderful! It motivates me to take things one step at a time with creating my first novel!

— Mariah

I Love LOVE LOVE this program. I tried autocrit and iliys and this one just works for me. For the first time I finished a book and I am soooo soooo happy!

— Anna

Dabble remains my new favorite thing. I spent last night trying out every browser-based novel-writing tool in existence. And I’m back here with Dabble this morning. 🙂

I just want you to know how awesome I think Dabble is. This is a really worthwhile app for any writer and while it is geared towards the novel would be useful for any long form writing. This is a fantastic product.
