A new twist on a tactile tool to randomly combine a plot, a subject and a setting or style,
has three spinning wheels featuring plot/conflict, theme/setting and subject/location. By manipulating the wheels -- or do a random spin and let fate take over -- you generate combinations that make fantastic creative prompts for writing, sketching or any creative activity. And you have the
freedom to edit the wheels to fit your process
: from simply tweaking the built in lists to creating entirely new scenarios from scratch
The Character Builder wheel
creates combinations of archetypes attributes and backgrounds, and t
he World Builder wheel
combines theme, mood and place to create one-of-a-kind settings. More wheels are on the way, and you can customize copies of the built in wheels, or create your own from scratch.
is a creative tool to prompt ideas for plot, character, and setting. Their idea generator can be used effectively for both written and oral storytelling. This app can be used with a wide variety of age groups ranging from preschoolers to teenagers. The user interface is simple enough for ages 3+ to use without any additional instruction. The use of the app does not require reading, so it is an ideal tool for using in a preschool story circle (see lesson plans at APP site) as well as a general writing prompt for all ages without reading or native language barriers.
Storymaking begins by spinning the virtual wheel for an image that
stimulates narrating a portion of the story
allows up to 4 players to collaboratively evolve their skills and imagination with impromptu storytelling. Each image offers up to 30 seconds of narration with opportunities to re-record. Each story has up to 12 pages of animated storytelling that can be shared. You will be prompted with a choice of sharing an iBook version of the story or sharing online.
