Chandra, the founder of Granthika, decided to make a comprehensive tool to organize all the world-building data in books. This tool ensures that as you write, you will be able to easily create and see connections and change anything that doesn’t fit into the overarching narrative.
Every element tracked
Take a chance to get the newest writing tool on the market with Granthika. It has plenty of useful features for writers, but it falls short in some important areas.
Keeping everything organized in your book and then finding the information when you need it can be challenging. Granthika aims to include that into one place where you can write your book and see the connections all at the same time. You get a two week trial, but after that, you’ll need to grab a subscription.
There are various features available, but the main one is the direct referencing of all the information to the characters or locations they are attached to in the world. The other ones include a synchronized chronology, and manuscript restructuring tools which allow you to move parts of your book around easily.
Unfortunately, it is a new software, and though there is great potential, it is lacking. Unlike Word or Grammarly which provide grammatical corrections, it does not. Granthika is still missing extensive characterization or worldbuilding features found in World Anvil. Lastly, it has several bugs that slow work down significantly.
Where can you run this program?
You can run this program on Microsoft Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Is there a better alternative?
No, there are no better alternatives. World Anvil contains the worldbuilding elements without the integration of the actual book. Word and Evernote cannot make a book that synchronizes with all of the elements necessary, though they feature grammar and spelling tools that writers may prefer.
Granthika has a unique space within the market. With the promise of further updates, the already innovative features for writers, the few detracting elements shouldn’t discourage anyone from giving it a shot.
Should you download it?
Yes, you should give it a go with the trial to see if it is for you.
