Recommendation: Save the Cat! Story Structure Software 3.0

Blake Snyder Enterprises has announced the release of Save the Cat! Story Structure Software 3.0. I haven’t tried this software yet… but it looks really cool. As someone who struggles with structure (and a big fan of Snyder’s 15 beats) I’m thoroughly excited to download this product and plot out my next script.

The software has an innovative Board for visualizing your entire script in an easily viewable way right on your computer screen. It also has tools for beating out your script, developing your logline, and framing your structure according to one of Snyder’s 10 genres.

You can learn more about Save the Cat! Story Structure Software 3.0 here. It costs $99.95 and has Windows, Mac, iPhone and iPad versions.

And please — If you’ve tried previous versions of the software or have already purchased this release, let us know how you like it!

Quote of the Day: Stephen King

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot… Reading is the creative center of a writer’s life… You cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you.
