portrayl: is there a story inside you?

Two new and interesting online tools that I found listed on techcrunch: Portrayl and Ficlets. Both allow you to create a collaborative story.

Portrayl , according ot their website “is a place where writers showcase their work. You can start a story and add a chapter at a time. When you decide you’re finished, you can create a pdf ebook and also rss feeds of your story. Here’s the cool part – other people can add chapters to your story – but your chapters stay intact. When someone adds to your story it branches off into a new direction.


Ficlets: according to their site “a ficlet is a short story that enables you to collaborate with the world. Once you’ve written and shared your ficlet, any other user can pick up the narrative thread by adding a prequel or sequel. In this manner, you may know where the story begins, but you’ll never guess where (or even if!) it ends.”


Cool huh?
