Word Tamer

By Judy Waite
This site is looking for storytellers who want to make stars of their stories. Wordtamer is a website where you tame words and train stories.

Explore the fun fair. When you roll over the signs, they will glitter as you glide past. Choose one, click on it, and let it take you to your first challenge. Play around with ideas. Get inspiration about plot, characters, themes as you write your stories.

Capture fresh new writing possibilities. All your ideas can be saved, printed & developed off-line.

Join the new generation of story tellers.

"OK, I admit it. I put off getting active on My eCoach for quite some time. I was busy with daily routines, state reporting needs, student information systems and staffing needs. NOW it is time to spend quality time re-energizing myself and my staff with the fabulous and infinite resources on this site. I will encourage the staff at our school site to spend 30 minutes a day getting acquainted, responding to blogs and growing for the sake of our students!"
