We have heard many stories from our Grand papa and mamma, now new bird in our sky will help to boost our imagination. Our chance to tell a story – Qwikstory.com. Launched on 15th May, 2012 Qwikstory.com , Gives you chance to be creative in 1,000 characters.
Qwikstory offers its members the choice of starting or continuing a Qwikstory. The first user begins by writing his own story about whatever topic he choose, after that another user continues with the tale, taking the story into any direction – the possibilities are endless.
“Here’s the catch – once you start a story, you have only 1,000 characters to tell your part of the story and you can’t continue the story until at least one person has added to your Qwikstory” said the site’s owner, who made the announcement.
The original thread creator is open to be as imaginative as possible and has access to deny any additional sections that he doesn’t like but he can’t continue with his own tale until someone else has added in another section. In short, it’s our old day storytelling, but with a digital social networking twist.
Quikstory gives you many categories to write on. Such as:
- Action/ Adventure
- Science fiction/ fantasy
- Suspense/ thriller
An interesting feature of the Qwikstory.com site is its search feature that give access to a database that enables members to locate:
- Qwikstory Topic: Gives you many topics to search your interest.
- Top Qwikstories: List of Qwickstories which is contributed by many users.
- Qwikstory Users: Look at the list. May you find your friends.
- Newest Qwikstories: New fishes in the sea.
- Hot Qwikstories: List of hot Qwikstories as of now. So users can easily view which ones are getting the most traffic and drawing in the most readers.
Qwikstory also has the facility for members to send out invitations to friends and reading other persons’ Qwikstories.
“Simply put Qwikstory.com is site that facilitates collaborative online story writing experience,” the site owner said.
Creator B.E. McFadden states that “Qwikstory is meant to foster a sense of teamwork and personal thought.”
McFadden says he grew restless with the atmosphere of traditional social networking that encouraged the sharing of “useless information” which didn’t require a great deal of communication, reading or writing skills.
“I wanted to come up with a concept that combines the good aspects of Facebook and Twitter while also trying to give people the opportunity to interact with their friends in a creative way,” McFadden says.
While the site has only just been developed, there is already talk of a new feature that will aim to collect the entire story after it is completed and create it into a printable or e-book format available for purchase.
