The Future of Collaborative Fiction

StoryMash, the future of collaborative fiction. A creative writing community for authors, amateur writers, readers and anyone interested in collaborative fiction and collaborative creative writing.


Authors and writers hone your creative writing skills. Collaborate on new fiction stories, or branch an existing fiction story in a different direction by writing the next chapter or even a chapter into its middle!

Authors, earn money for every chapter you write and self-publish on StoryMash. StoryMash rewards your creative writing talents by sharing at least 50% of the advertisement revenue.

Readers participate in the collaborate writing community. Vote for your favorite chapters and influence which plots get written next. Provide your feedback, praise, and criticism to authors about their creative writing in discussions attached to every chapter.

Readers, find fiction stories that interest you. After you read a chapter, choose how you want the plot to continue by selecting a branch from among multiple "next" chapters.

While reading one of our great fiction stories, if the story doesn't continue the way you want or have a great idea on what should happen next and catch the collaborate writing bug, register to write a follow up chapter!

Featured Chapter


You need two blankets, a pillow (or two if needed), pants, boots, a button up shirt, safety pins, and something to use as a head. (more on heads later).


Roll blankets to form arms and legs. Fold rolled leg blanket in half, stuff each leg into the pant legs. Safety pin legs to pillow bottom.


Next put opened shirt on a bed, put pillow on top with legs at bottom, stuff the arm blanket into the arms of the shirt, pin arms to the top of the pillow and button up the shirt. Fasten shirt to pants either tucked or not. You can hide the pins with a belt if you wish.


Now stuff leg endings into boots and all you will need is a head.


I used a fabric stuffed pumpkin into a pillow case, then put straight pins through plastic bugs to form nose and mouth, then I pined on eyes I had drawn and cut out with straight pins. It came out really cute. You could even use a jack-o-lantern if you place the dummy and head on a couch just right. Just don't use an open flame, just in case the dummy get's shifted and the flame finds the clothing. Or once I used a Styrofoam wig form with a wig. Now you might find a fake head or skull at a Halloween supply store the would work. Most of all have fun with it.
