About the Scene One Book Writing App
Greetings fellow writers!
My name's Brad Dehnert, and I'm the lead developer of Scene One and Story Path.
I'm a writer and web developer from Australia who's lived in a few fancy places around the world but has now settled in Vancouver, Canada . Before I dove into the world of story-telling apps, I worked as a developer in the worlds of finance, online and youth marketing, journalism, and too many freelance jobs to remember!
When I can tear myself away from typing code, I type up words that sometimes resemble science fiction stories. These tend to lean towards Thrillers and Military Sci-Fi, and I have three and a half novels sitting in a drawer waiting for me to get back to them. Lately I've also been dabbling in short stories to help explore the wider worlds I've created in my novels.
Over the years, I've tried dozens of writing apps in a journey to find the one that works best for me. But nothing was ever quite right. There were features I liked, but they often enforced workflows that - to put it politely - didn't work for me at all. Not to mention bugs that took years to fix (if they ever were), or software that was completely ignored for my choice of platform (Windows). Plus, there were all the tools I needed and wanted but which no-one else had built.
That's what led me to creating Scene One
I've taken my years of experience as a professional software engineer and created the writing app I've always wanted, and one that works in a logical way for all writers. It's agnostic to how you like to organise your manuscripts and structure your writing, so you can use it the way you want to use it; not the way someone else thinks you should be writing.
I'm also able to quickly add new tools and features as their need arises. (A perfect example of this is the Revision Board which I needed to easily see which scenes needed the most attention.)
I hope you enjoy writing with Scene One as much as I do! If you haven't yet created your account, you can sign up here!
