Taleforge: Your writing exercise

Taleforge is an app created to help authors practice their creative writing skill. It gives you a starting prompt and a word target, then goes on to pose additional challenges for you to incorporate in your story.

The app is created by Martin Hooijmans from The Story Shack, an illustrated flash fiction journal and home to hundreds of random name generators.
