StoryArena Helps Writers Test Ideas

penpaperlife304

StoryArena is a new site to help writers test their story ideas within a growing community of readers.

The site works on credits, rewarding readers for providing feedback to writers. If you don’t want to read other writers’ work, you can pay for credits to get your ideas reviewed. The developer explained:

Try different variations of your story to see which perform best. Find out what people think, and how it makes them feel. Earn achievements. Climb the leaderboard. You retain all rights and ownership to the work you publish. You have full control over your work at any time. Each submission is limited to 1600 characters, approximately 200-300 words, depending on your writing style.
