OVER 153,647,205 WORDS WRITTEN IN DABBLE

The simple, easy-to-use tool, packed with helpful features that allows beginning novelists or published authors create amazing stories. 

Designed & Developed by Infinity Media

Write your novel.

It's all about simplicity & organization

If you're sick of using sticky notes, plotting it out on a piece of paper, using elementary word processors then you're going to love Dabble.  Dabble's was created for two reasons - Simplicity and organization.  There are other tools that are either way too complicated and almost require a course to teach you how to use them...or too elementary where they lack basic tools and organization.  That's where Dabble shines!   

Write detailed notes on each plot point in your plot lines.

See the big picture.

Set up the events in each subplot to happen at the right time in your story.

Shape your story with Dabble’s unique plotting tool. Plot like J.K. Rowling. Dabble provides a plot grid, plot lines (subplots), and plot points (the events in your subplots) to supercharge your plotting.

Plot your story.

Dive into each subplot.

Write wherever you are.

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 or write offline at the cabin over the weekend.

Automatically sync to the cloud.

Sync your novel up to the cloud and between computers. Dabble keeps a full copy on each computer and one in the cloud. These copies sync with each other when they are online.

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.

Take days off.

Dabble will auto-calculate your daily word count goal, based on how many writing days are left before your goal deadline.

Work toward daily goals.

Dabble helps you set and keep goals.

Track your progress.

Adjust your 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.

Auto-formatting allows you to focus on writing words instead of formatting chapter titles.

Auto-focus-mode fades out everything but the page and text as you type to help you stay in the zone.

Divide your manuscript into parts, chapters, and scenes, navigate your novel with a click, and reorder your scenes with drag and drop.

Introducing Plots

Organize your story.

The short answer - it creates a better product for you.  You get a product AND a service. 

Subscription pricing allows us to provide built-in syncing, release new features regularly, and provide great support. Other companies can take weeks to reply to your questions, new features only come every few years with the new version, and you have to manage sync yourself which may result in corrupted files and data loss.

Examples of the benefits of the subscription model include new features. This last year we released project-wide find & replace, built-in grammar and spell checking powered by ProWritingAid, and an updated integration with NaNoWriMo's new website for auto-wordcount submission. Soon we will be releasing a mobile-friendly version of Dabble, versioning (to allow you to go back through your project history to any given moment since its creation), co-authoring (so you can write a book with another author without sync issues), and images in your story notes. We will continue listening to you and improving Dabble.

Early on we decided we wanted to make Dabble the best product available, and we couldn't do that with a 1-time purchase software. A 1-time purchase puts a company’s focus on new customers and the next version of the product. A subscription puts our focus on our current customers and improving the experience for you every day, month, and year.

By subscribing to Dabble, you get a great product and service now, and you are investing in its future.
