InkleWriter - Interactive Writing and Adaptive Reading

InkleWriter is a website that helps writers tell interactive stories while also providing opportunities for adaptive reading.  The software aims to give readers a choice as they read to what happens next.  As a writer, you develop those choices and the software makes it easy for you to continue the writing.  I like this idea because it creates an engaging avenue for readers to the text they are reading.  After writing a story, users can actually have it converted to an eBook for Kindle.

As you write your story, InkleWriter branches out the story with choices and then helps link the stories back together.  It keeps track of the paths you have finished and which paths still need to be written.  No diagrams or programming, just free writing and once done, the stories can be shared with anyone.
