Welcome to Subtxt—the world’s only writing app that combines the chaotic serendipity of artificial intelligence with a predictive narrative framework.
In short, Subtxt helps you write GREAT meaningful stories.
If you saw The Matrix you know that the system controlling the human batteries looked a little something like this:
Well, the same sort of embedded code exists in the stories we write.
You likely felt this yourself at one point or another (otherwise, you wouldn't be here), but I'm pretty sure you didn't realize that the code for the subtext of a story actually looks something like this:
The above code is a scene from The Shawshank Redemption. You know, the phenomenal Stephen King adaptation starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins and directed by Frank Darabont.
You recognize it, right?
Of course, you don't. That's where Subtxt fits in.
Subtxt is like nothing you've ever seen before when it comes to building a great story. The framework offers writers a God's-eye view of their story, not an Audience/character point-of-view they're used to in other paradigms (Hero's Journey, Save the Cat!, etc.). As such, you won't find anything like mystery or surprises in Subtxt--if you did, you would really just be fooling yourself...(as the "God" of a story would know everything there is to know about the story).
As far as red-herrings/wrong-turns/whammies go, those are concepts worked out during the weaving of a story's thematic elements (when you actually write the thing). Hidden reveals have no place in Subtxt as--by definition--they are things you reveal to the Audience, not the Author.
It can get some getting used to for those who have been indoctrinated in these other systems, but trust us: the time spent is well worth it. You'll start to unravel your own blind spots, and fine-tune and "upgrade" your natural storytelling abilities.
The hardest part about starting a new story or fixing a broken one is knowing where to begin. You end up wasting a lot of time trying to figure out how to get that story in your head down on paper. The writing process becomes an endless guessing game of writing and re-writing, and writing and re-writing again.
With Subtxt’s powerful features, you get the structure of your story down first (hence the name of our company, Narrative First, Inc.). By focusing your story on what you want to say, rather than some random predetermined mythical journey or beat sheet, you build a story from intent.
Your heart knows what it wants to say—you just don’t know how to translate your passion and inspiration into a story that works.
Subtxt helps you make that transition—and it helps you do it fast. The faster you finish this story, the faster you can start the next, and the more experience you gain along the way. The more experience, the better the writer you become which translates into even more stories.
That’s why we often refer to Subtxt as a productivity tool for storytellers.
Writing is a journey. With Subtxt, you can be sure you’re headed in the right direction and that you won't fall victim to that dreaded vampire: writer's block.
