You’ll spend hundreds of hours – scratch that – hundreds of days writing your novel. So, our goal was to build a platform that feels good to write into. With our beta, we’re pleased to say, we think we’ve done that.
We went through a bit of an epiphany with the beta a month or so ago. We were more or less ready to get it out to you. We’d been trying it, and it did everything we wanted it to do – but it just wasn’t quite good enough – it didn’t feel right. So we went back to the drawing board, sat down with our designer and looked at how we could make it richer, make it feel like we knew Novlr should feel. It was a painful choice, but we’re so glad we did because we’re really proud of how Novlr now feels.
By design, it isn’t overloaded with features. We were aiming for simplicity and a good writing experience. Now we will turn our attention to adding the features you most need before we reach full release (much more to come on this).
We hope you like it. We hope it feels like a place you could write your novel.
PS: I know this isn’t a novel – but I wrote it in Novlr – and it felt good.
