Easy import and export

If you’ve already started writing, no worries! It’s easy to import your Word Doc files into Bookflow…and even simpler to export your manuscript or outline.

Goal setting

Setting a goal can be a motivating step in your writing journey. Once you set a word-count goal, you’ll be able to track your progress in your project.

Pacing analysis

Bookflow’s project dashboard shows the length of each scene you write. At a glance, you’ll see if one of your scenes is too long or too short.

Reorder and edit

Bookflow’s outline features make it easy to analyze and edit your work. Simply drag and drop the scenes to reorder your manuscript.
