Story writing is like a muscle that needs to be exercised. The best way to exercise is when it's fun and so should story writing be.
These story spinners make coming up with story ideas easy and fun and something you can on you own or with your friends.
The game consists of 6 boards with spinning arrows. You spin the arrow to choose where the story is set, who the character is, when it take place, characteristics, something that has happened and why a character has done something. You can use all 6 boards or just a few.
We've used these during some of our writing workshops and had a great time trying to come up with stories with what has been chosen. You could also challenge yourself to come up with a short story everyday using just 3 of the boards to write in your journal or with friends pass them around and see who can come up with the funniest story. You can end up with some really funny combinations such as a timid witch who goes to the beach at Christmas.
They are also great when you are a bit stuck when writing a story and you want to add another character for instance, just spin the arrow and try to work what it is chosen into the story.
The boards are a good size and come in a sturdy cardboard box.
They are £14.39 and available here
