I will probably add more to this later.
There are lots of ways we tell stories. I know there are others who enjoy doing it through words and I love creative writing so I have lots of ideas I want to discuss and share.
Here are some resources, I guess that I feel I can’t help sharing
The Dictionary.com app had a feature where you could ‘star’ words and keep them in a list of favourites. I used to keep a list of words that I thought were interesting, or brought an idea for a story, for inspiration
(unfortunately the app just crashes upon opening now so I can’t do that anymore now, but I recently started this again)
I also rediscovered a page I bookmarked for inspiration – 100 Beautiful and Ugly Words
pictures and experiences might inspire you
there are more in the resources
Twine is fantastic and simple to use for starting on choose-your-own adventure stories.
###NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)
Storybird is a writing community (which I like using, very kid-friendly and supportive and moderated) and I can’t help posting a sample of the tips/resources they have on their blog:
Aside from their blog posts, the community is something you might like to check out too — there is a gallery of art to inspire stories and all stories are moderated.
And also I think that writing is something organic You will find a lot from simple searching, but most of all probably I think from just having fun yourself.
Storytelling is vast… You may even see your own life as a story. You can definitely apply these ideas in so many places (I think it is a delight ) e.g. for here on the forum, if I post character-development resources, you could use them in a game, and definitely can use plot stuff in Hopscotch! And also for when you feel like you get creative blocks.
Just a small note for this topic, I am more interested in working on developing our own original work/ideas plus stuff that is kid-friendly I have searched up other topics but I’m brimming with resources/ideas I wanted to discuss so this was a bit different to what I’d seen.
