[vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]What is an interactive story? Interactive stories are like regular stories but a lot more powerful and fun. Interactive stories let the readers make the choices about a character and what should happen next in the story.
For example you are reading a story about a young wolf born in Yellowstone National Park. One day when the mother wolf is out hunting, the young wolf hears a strange sound outside his den. Should the young pup go outside and find the reason behind the voice or should he stay put.
If it was a normal story, you – the reader, wouldn’t have a say in what the pup should do. But in interactive stories readers can decide what a character, like this young pup, should do. And of course the story is going to be different depending on what choices the characters make.[/text_output][text_output][/text_output][text_output]It is a lot of fun to read interactive stories but if you are the writer of an interactive stories, things can get tricky. What with all those branched scenarios and keeping track of how the story will unfold after each decision can make a mess of things.
Luckily there are tools that make this task easy. Inklewriter is one of them.[/text_output][text_output][/text_output][blockquote type=”center” cite=”” id=”” class=”” style=””]
The way our stories work is simple: the reader is given the text of a story in a small chunks, and after each, they get to make a decision about what happens next. That could be what a character says, or does – but it could also be a deeper choice, like why a character has done what they’ve done, or how they feel about something else in the story. Every decision the reader makes is remembered and has the potential to influence things later on – depending on how the author wants to tell their tale.
[/blockquote][text_output]Inklewriter has an easy to use interface. You can watch their tutorial on how to write interactive stories. You can even read many examples even from the classics like Frankenstein or The adventure of the Musgrave Ritual. Once you get the hang of how things work in an interactive story you can go ahead and write your own. No set-up, no programming, no drawing diagrams.
You can even re write another story,allowing the reader to discover different aspects of the world, follow up hints and allusions in the text, and maybe even take some narrative paths that the writer may have considered.
After you are done writing you can share your story. Each story is given its unique web page so sharing a story is really easy. You can even get your story converted to Kindle.
Best of all it is FREE. So just jump in and start creating.[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_btn title=”Launch Site” style=”flat” color=”black” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.inklestudios.com%2Finklewriter%2F|title:Inklewriter|target:%20_blank” button_block=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
