@jaycano I've checked out a lot of writing programs and a lot of project management programs/sites. In fact, over the last few weeks, I think I've done more of that than actual writing! LOL.
Ideally, I'd love a place for my entire team to see the entire process and all the tasks that need to be done, and be able to assign the tasks and tag certain team members to let them know their part is ready, or to include in creative discussions.
I have three permanent editors on my team who work with me on my books, and I'd love for them to be able to watch from outline to finished work. That when each process is finished, a snapshot could be made to show what it looked like at the end of each stage. To track its overall progress.
It also makes it easier to check out the notes and ideas we've thrown around, or to double check details in a bio or a character sheet, if it's all in the same place. I hate that everyone is basically using three different programs: the project management site, my writing sites to see the notes and elements of the story so they can make sure I don't accidently say my blonde character is a brunette, and then Word to do the actual editing. Especially the last, because then it means I have to use Word from that point forward!
If I could combine this, the other site like it, Quip, and The Novel Factory then I'd have a perfect writing program... hahahaha. Not that I'm asking for much... XD
But no, I know there's a lot of "I wish" this and that, and "I'd like" this or that. But really, what you guys are doing is amazing. While I can visualize and see that "perfect" program in my head, I'd never have any idea on how to create it. So hats off to everyone behind the scenes who is actually making this happen and working towards building a program that suits everyone's needs!
I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!
P.S. Feel free to keep the teasers coming!! ;)
