John Kolson’s Writeado: A New Online Writing Tool
3/24/2012 10:29:15 PM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

A new, fun, interactive way to keep you writing!
Instead of a personal month-end blog from me, today I’d like to share something that my writing friend John Kolson has created that published pros and aspiring authors alike could find very helpful in getting the writing done!

A new writing social network has arrived. Writeado is an online tool for writers that allow users to track their goals and also rewards them for accomplishments. The main goal behind Writeado is to keep writers motivated, and to make new people interested in writing. It works by keeping track of word counts, and also tracks what type of genre a user writes about. As it keeps track, it rewards the user by upgrading their avatar based on what they write about, and how much they write. It’s a blend of an online game and a social network. Also important is tracking, which shows users graphs about how much they write, how many goals they have met, and how they have done for the day, month, or year.

Writeado was created by John Kolsun, a writer who explains why he wanted to start the project in four main ways. Number one is to give writing the support and enthusiasm that is seen in the month of November for National Novel Writing Month all year long. This will introduce many new people to writing. Number two is for Writeado to be a centralized site for writers of all forms. All genres are welcome to join. Next is motivation for writers, who will be able to keep track of their goals or be able to choose prompts to complete. The final reason is for promotion. All users will be able to post their work and spread the word about their writing. Also, there will be a special promoted author section.

That is the main focus of Writeado, but there are many other features that are in the works, such as: word count battles (Chose a friend or a foe, and go toe to toe in a word count battle), quality writing battles (Chose a friend or a foe, and also there will be judges picked. They will chose the winner based on quality of writing), guilds (create groups of writers within the system), and also specialized campaigns (writing goals based on an ongoing storyline, fitting in with a theme that is site wide).

Writeado is currently in development and needs support from crowd funding. Please help Writeado by visiting this website (http://www.indiegogo.com/writeado), and also spreading the word.

So my writerly friends, if you’d like to learn more or you’d like to support John’s endeavor, please contact Mr. Kolson at:
