I imagine it's a confusing business
trying to keep track of character's traits while writing a novel or
piece of fiction. Your students, and the writers among you educators,
may find Storybook to be the organizational answer you've been searching for. Best of all: Storybook is 100% free.
Below is a little about the program from the creators:
Storybook is a free (open source) novel-writing tool for
creative writers, novelists and authors which will help you to keep an
overview of multiple plot-lines while writing books, novels or
other written works.
Storybook assists you in structuring your book
all information about your characters and locations in one place. Then,
use the included Storybook features for managing chapters, scenes,
characters and locations. A simple interface is provided to enable you
to assign your defined characters and locations to each scene and to
keep an overview of your work with user-friendly chart tools.
