Next Chapters Helps Creators Imagine Fantastic Worlds and Stories

For Creators

It doesn't matter where you are stuck.
We can help you break through and finish your novel.

Founded with the purpose of helping aspiring novelists write their stories, Next Chapters makes it easy to work out the individual elements of your current writing project by piecing it together chapter by chapter.

Create solo.  Make progress together.

Whatever fantasy world you imagine – its characters, its landscape, its economy, its perils, its monsters, its dieties – is entirely up to you. However making it concrete for the reader is essential.

Find inspiration as you outline your stories, profile compelling characters, and plot story arcs and individual scenes. Reach your writing goals with motivation from peer critiques and guidance on story craft from our Next Chapters community. 

Brainstorm great story ideas and create full story outlines in no time.

Starting your story: Use fun and structured writing tools to flesh out your story.  Create characters, brainstorm settings, and plan rising and falling action. Finish with a comprehensive outline of your story.

Developing your ideas: Have an idea for a story? A draft in progress? Next steps are sometimes hard to work out. Get professional feedback for improvement and accountability to stay motivated and finish your story.

Next Chapters offers tools, inspiration, and a supportive community for aspiring novelists and creatives. We continuously host creative challenges for those who need some extra motivation where participants race to complete a chapter of writing in one of our new community novels.  Take some time to read over some of our great books already in progress on Next Chapters.  And if any sound interesting to you, come on over and add your own next chapter to the book already in progress.

Beyond the Barrier

Having finally reached the stars, humanity finds that we are fenced in by an unknown technology. At 22 light-years across, the area cordoned off by the mysterious Pylons is hardly small, though humanity loves to push boundaries. Enter the Dust Bus, a prospector ship cruising between stations when an inert, seemingly deactivated Pylon is discovered. What happens next throws all of human space into a panic and sends ripples across a galactic civilization spanning millions of years and near as many worlds.

Alienated

A mysterious man called Nate Schick runs for POTUS, backed by dark money nobody can trace and a vast network. Where did he come from, and what does he want? With America on the brink of a civil war and culture descending into complete insanity, Shick looks like he could be the answer to everyone’s prayers. But he has his own agenda, and his home planet has a completely different plan for what he’ll do once he’s in the Oval Office.
