Build Better Stories With Typing Chimp Software

All our software is available for Windows and Mac.
Get fast support if you have questions.

Buy What You Need

We offer three separate products - Character, Story, and World - so you can purchase just the help you need without paying for a large application with features you don't need.

Buy Once

No subscriptions, no in-app purchases, no "pro" version. When you buy one of our applications you own it for life. There is no further cost. And, by the way, no internet connection is required to use any of our products.

Scrivener Integration

Add in support. All our software allows you to export your characters, story structure, or world descriptions directly to your Scrivener project.

Typing Chimp Character

The application's character generator mixes choices you make in the interface with the Enneagram Personality Sytem to create an instant and unique character sketch. You then use built-in tools and your writing skills to polish up a complete and detailed character profile.

Once complete, you can print, save, or export your character profile to Scrivener. Or just keep the Character application open and refer back to your character profile as you write your story.

Typing Chimp Story

Build your story from scratch or use the built-in story generator to quickly create up to a billion different stories in full story stucture (based on analysis of hundreds of successful and popular stories). Organize and re-organize your story in a story tree--drag and drop story elements around to find the perfect structure.

Then print, save, or export your story structure to Scrivener to write your story. Or just keep Typing Chimp Story open and refer back as you write your story in any application.

Typing Chimp World

Create a complex story world for your stories with the first world building application. Start answering questions and writing details as you go. Then generate a world description ready for you to use your writing skills to flesh out. Add as many different planets as you want.

Once your universe and planets are fully developed you can print, save, or export them all to Scrivener. Or just keep the application open while you write your story in another application.
