...And she will tell stories where ever she goes.

Who doesn't like to jump into an imaginary world every once in a while? We do it all the time with video games, movies, music and books. In days gone by, story telling around a diner table, campfire or at a social event used to be a common occurrence. With so much visual stimulation bombarding us all the time, we as a culture have forgotten how much fun creating our own imaginary worlds can be.
Nothing is impossible in an imaginary world. Flowers can talk, people can have special abilities and traveling to another universe is just a blink away. I started this blog to share interactive stories with others and to awaken the imagination in all of us. Together lets create something fun and exciting and for even just a few moments lets escape to a story world.

Continue the Story

Continue the story is a fun, imagination filled activity. The point of continue the story is to read the the story starter I provide and then add up to a paragraph of your own words. The next person continues to add to what is already written until we have a good length story that is created by several authors with different imaginations.  Let the story wheels turn and together let's continue the story. Remember that this page is designed for middle school and high school students as well as adults so please make sure submissions are appropriate :)

The water is up to my chin now. I need to get my hands free or I'm going to drown. "Help!" I scream

the words. Just like the thousand times before, there is no answer. I wriggle my wrists back and forth

against the rope. Did the rope loosen a little or is it my imagination? ... (And now it's your turn to write the next bit)


  1. Thankfully I have a small knife dangling from the lanyard around my neck, but I have to figure out how to get a hold of it by just using my mouth. I take a deep breath and bow my head, sticking my tongue out to grab the lanyard.

    I keep treading water as I'm doing this. I'm getting tired and there are so many thoughts and fears going through my head. "How will Mama cope with the grief if she finds out that I'm dead?" "I don't want to die!" "Someone save me!" The last thought comes out as a scream.

    I return to fishing for the lanyard. I manage to grab it with my mouth and slowly inch the knife towards my mouth with my shoulder.

  2. I can feel the water inching slowly towards my mouth, the freezing water splashed into my nose as I continued to pull the knife closer with my mind and my mouth. "Come on, a little closer" I beckoned, trying not to panic. As a child my brother, Wade, would always get me into difficult and sometimes scary predicuments, I always had thought he hated me. But now, in my current bind that i somehow got myself into, I realized he was only protecting me. With his goofy smile at the front of my mind, I focus all my strength to keep my head above the dark surface.

  3. Hey...you never finished the story. Don't leave us hanging!
