The good thing about the app is it forces the writer to break the book down to the essentials. It won't let the writer drift away from what's important.

What's a Connection?

Connections describe the relationships between Story Elements that remain consistent as the story progresses. Describe familial relationships, how the setting influences a character's mental state, or even how a motif feeds into a theme. You can connect characters to characters, events to arcs, themes to characters, or any combination you want.
