Who are we?

Founder James Calderon is an aspiring author just like you. He’s read all the books and written countless words that amounted to stories with incredible possibilities but no real support to achieve their full potential.

He saw a need in the writing community to not just receive subjective opinions about writing but objective information and measurements applied to the process. Tools and information to create a real sense of progress for even the most exploratory writers that would ease writerly anxiety.

That’s why here at Craft of Writing, we don’t tell you what to write, but rather show you how to organize everything so you can have confidence and control over your story.

If you want to plan out all the critical details ahead of time, you can.

If you want to discover all the details as you go, you can do that too.
