"Use this tool to help come up with creative writing topics. Click the buttons for setting, character and conflict suggestions. If you don’t like the suggestions, click again. Maybe you’ll use the idea or maybe it will stir up an original idea."

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s insight:

What a fun tool! This would make a great team building activity. Similar to 5 Card Flickr concept.  Here's an example of what my first selection drew:

  • setting = an airplane
  • character = corrupt politician
  • conflict = your character is terrified of shoes

Introducing the Find Your Story Facebook App | Expedia App

Introducing Expedia's Find Your Story Facebook app. Simply upload the photos from your trip and share your journey with friends. Get started at www.findyours.com (takes you to Facebook).

 

http://www.fastcocreate.com/1682365/expedia-encourages-you-to-find-your-story-with-new-app

Now, Expedia has handed the "Find Yours" storytelling over to its customers with an interactive Facebook app that allows users to make their own transformational videos. The app accesses users’ pictures from Facebook or Instagram and uses Google Maps to create a slide show video of their travel photos. People are prompted to answer questions such as “what are you looking for” and choose locations, photos, filters, and music in order to create their own shareable short film.

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s insight:

Free.  But you must have a Facebook account.  I created one based on my trip to Africa a few years back. https://www.findyours.com/gallery/4323 ;

Eye phone is an exercise around building a story by taking photos that:

- Helps practice keen observation.

- To make you think about what you are seeing and why you are choosing to capture that “visual thought”.

- Helps develop visual story-telling skills.

Two Pens's curator insight, December 22, 2012 2:06 PM

Love this idea of training yourself to think visually, especially if you're not into photography or drawing.

Workshop Map | Story Elves

Workshop Map | Story Elves | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

This online workshop is for storytellers of every sort:  ones who might have a bit of trouble getting started, ones who are a little stuck in the middle, and those who are simply in search of a new idea.

 

Story Elves work in four distinct ways:  writing a story, editing the words, illustrating the story and designing the look of each page.  By undertaking these four types of work, a story becomes a polished book.

 

We offer tips of these four kinds, in the event that you might like to create books of your own.  Don’t forget that you can collaborate with another artist, as we ourselves do.

 

You may desire to work on one thing at a time:  writing, editing or illustrating or design.  Therefore, we stack our tips in separate rooms, to make each aspect of story work more clear.

Dio: The Creators Of Second Life Launch A Platform For Storytelling | Fast Co.Design

Dio: The Creators Of Second Life Launch A Platform For Storytelling | Fast Co.Design | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

|It’s easy to share photos (Flickr, Instagram, Facebook). It’s easy to visit places (Google Street View). It’s easy to tell stories (every blogging platform on earth). So what if you want to give someone a tour of your home town?

 

Dio is a new site by Linden Lab, who you know best for Second Life. It’s essentially a photo-sharing site with a twist: Rather than simply navigating by thumbnails or next buttons, Dio allows you to link images through a larger, branching narrative. The result? You don’t just have a set of photos; you have an interactive place or story."

 

www.dio.com

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s insight:

Free. Dio is currently in beta.  I wanted to see what one of the stories looked like but the only way to view was to login with Facebook or request an invite. I think that will hurt them - if you want people to know what you offer, you need to let them see without commiting to the service.

 

I didn't find it really intuitive to keep the story moving along at first, but once I started to figure it, it kept my attention even if it's a bit clunky.  I like that you can pick the way you want to explore the story.
