Start your own hero's journey
Achieve your dreams of writing a novel.
From learning to doing, Hiveword has you covered.
Since 2011, Hiveword has helped writers organize their novels and get better at their craft. Instantly search 40,000+ articles on writing with the Writer's Knowledge Base. Track your characters, scenes, and more with Hiveword's powerful novel organizer. Finally, polish your work with Knockout Novel. Use only the parts you need but everything is seamlessly integrated for a consistent user experience.
Hiveword's free novel organizer is its flagship product. It's easy to use but sophisticated enough to grow with your organizational needs. Hiveword covers the basics with scenes, characters, settings, items, and plotlines but really shines with innovative features like custom fields in the premium Hiveword Plus version.
Knockout Novel helps you polish your novel's plot and structure. Knockout Novel content is provided by acclaimed writing coach and author James Scott Bell. This self-paced module works within the novel organizer and is like having an expert novelist looking over your shoulder and gently guiding you to a better book.
The Writer's Knowledge Base (WKB) is THE search engine for writers. With curated content by author Elizabeth Spann Craig, the WKB can help you learn about the craft of writing from all of its perspectives: craft to business aspects and much more. With 40,000+ articles you might forget to eat lunch!
All of the tools are integrated within a free Hiveword novel organizer account. Some tools, such as the Writer's Knowledge Base (WKB), are available without an account but provide more functionality with one. For example, the WKB can be personalized. There's nothing to download because it's all online.
