IMPISH WRITER

Running Ahead

What you can expect next

Being a writer, I've felt the pain of releasing a "finished" copy of my book to the world. The good thing about being a programmer is that I don't have to ever finish. I get to add more. I get to make it better and better for all time.

I am always trying to make this application more, because I use it every day. I hope you use it every day. If it is a pleasure, and it does the things you need, then you'll keep comming back.

Planning is good! (Unless you're some insane pantser)
Here's my plan for the next 6 to 12 months.

Saving Your Words

Upcomming Features

Google Docs Sync

The application will send a copy of the project to google docs. It's already in the cloud, but sometimes people want many copies, and google docs is a nice target.
Release ETA:
Dec 2019

Search And Replace

Allow the author to find and replace text (like character names) in chapters and across the whole project.
Release ETA:
Dec 2019

Version History & Restore

The application is already keeping a history of changes, but the User Interface to help you restore isn't built yet.
Release ETA:
Jan 2020

Mobile App

Though the app works as a web page, it would be cool if there was something in the app store(s).
Release ETA:
Feb 2020
History

Already Here

Some of the cool things that are finished.

It's important to note the things we've accomplished. Take stock and remember all the hard work that has already taken place.

Here are some of the features that I loved adding to the program.

Get Excited!

Features You Can Use Today

Goals And Stats

Lets me see how much I've written on a project. Lets me set daily goals and total word goals. Have a fancy graph.
Released:
Sept 2019

Email Backups

Every time you stop writing, the application takes note and schedules an export of your manuscript. It will send a Word Docx to your email address roughly 3 hours after you stop. I added this, because even though I know the database is backed up. I also know most authors want a copy locally (or at least in a different system.)
If you start up in the 3 hours, it will reset the clock.
Released:
Nov 2019

Word/Doc Export

My editor really wants to get the book in a nicly formatted Word Doc. The application takes all the chapters and produces just such a doc.
Released:
Sept 2019

Epub Export

As an Indi I wanted a way to product something I could send right into amazon. There are a pile of app out there that help you format your book once it's done, but I wanted a one stop shop, so it was added to this app.
Released:
Aug 2019

Planning / Research / Characters

The application has a place for reasearch and character maps. It also lets me plan and reogranize my ideas, before I start writing. Then I get to turn those ideas into chapters.
