Welcome to Fablehenge

Fablehenge helps keep track of all your story components, both while outlining and when discovery writing. Unlike a traditional word processor it allows you to track your characters, settings, and plot elements, and how they relate to each other and to the scenes in your story.

This guide will help you get the most of Fablehenge. You can access the app at any time by visiting

You can use Fablehenge without logging in, but only authenticated users are able to take advantage of our sync, backup, and feedback sharing features. So we recommend registering and signing up first. If you'd rather play around with Fablehenge before signing up, you can skip to the next section.

Otherwise, stay here and let's get you authenticated! Start by clicking the "Log In" button in the left sidebar:

e-mail form

You should receive an e-mail with a passcode within a minute. If you don't see it, check your spam or junk folder. The e-mail will come from "Fablehenge", and have the subject "Login - Fablehenge".

Enter the passcode at the prompt and click Submit if it doesn't automatically submit.

If your device supports it, you can set up a passkey. Passkeys are a newer technology that provide enhanced security through public key cryptography, and biometric verification.

Passkey prompt

Click "skip" if your device doesn't support passkeys. You will be prompted for an e-mail passcode each time you log in instead. You can add and edit passkeys from the settings page at any time.

The Log In button will be replaced with some information about your account, tier, and connection status, as well as a log out button.
