Elevate your storytelling

Getting Started

An Introduction to One Stop For Writers

Good news—One Stop is unbelievably easy to understand and navigate. We’ve tried to make everything very intuitive, so you should have no trouble finding your way around the library. In fact, we encourage you to embrace the adventurer’s spirit and start by exploring the menu bar.

As you might expect, all of your personal account information can be found in your Account tab, including your subscription preferences. Make sure to keep your email address up-to-date here so you’ll always receive important messages regarding your account. 

Our powerhouse description database can be found in the THESAURUS menu and must be seen to be believed. Registered users can enjoy a sampling of our entries, whereas subscribers have full access—including the ability to customize entries by adding notes to them and saving your description ideas for later. 

Here at One Stop, you can create all kinds of story and scene structure maps, timelines, notes, character profiles, and other helpful resources. As a registered user, you can learn more about what we offer by visiting the Features and Tools page or using the links found in The Stacks menu. One resource we highly recommend is the Storyteller's Roadmap, which takes you step-by-step through the process of writing a story from start to finish. 

Subscribers can take these robust tools for a spin via the My Workspace tab, where your personal creative desk at One Stop can be found. By clicking “new,” you can create and save a host of items to your workspace, including project folders to organize brainstorming and planning materials by story. 

If you need help, reach out to your One Stop librarians via the Connect menu.
