It's hard to believe, but most bad stories start out as really, really great ideas! Everyone's always had the story that they've always wanted to write, trapped in their heads -- but what most of us don't realize is that after you get going, there are a lot of details that need to be fleshed out. And when you're at your wit's end, struggling to come up with a middle and an end that are just as compelling as the great idea that started it all, you start cutting corners. Before you know it, you've got yourself a bad story.

If only you had used Contour!

Contour, the proven story development system created by Emmy Award-nominated Jeffrey Alan Schechter, is designed to take your idea and turn it into a solid outline - the same kind of character-based structure used by many of the biggest blockbuster movies! With Contour, you're presented with an intuitive fill-in-the-blanks approach that's the perfect way to mine your original idea for more depth, more substance, and more detail.

Think of Contour as your writing partner, a tutor of sorts. Using Contour, you'll see how a main character's journey takes the form of archetypal themes -- the same themes that you see used in some of the top films in history! You'll even be able to see the scripts of several blockbuster movies broken down by the Contour system, so you can see how the story development process works to create a successful story!

This promotion includes the following:
Contour for Windows ($25.96)
Contour for Mac ($25.96)

Mariner Software Hi-
I suspect you ordered after the deadline when the discount drops to 35%. Perhaps BitsDuJour could chime in on this?

The user guide hasn't been updated in some time and will be when we release Contour 2. Version 1 is 32 bit, Version 2 will be 64 bit. Both, in theory, should work on XP.

You can look at the features we added to Contour 2 for Mac for a better idea of what we will be adding on the Win side.


As far as extending a free upgrade offer to 2.0, we can go ahead and do that. I suspect it will be released within the 90 day window anyway but if it isn't, it's probably not going to be too far behind.
