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.

"I love My eCoach because of the ease of use and the multiple things you can do with the components. As the district mentor, I utilize the Survey tool on a regular basis to create professional development surveys to help our district better provide the PD our staff feels they are in need and to evaluate the workshops we provide. The fact that we can share resources has assisted me in my teaching assignment both in the regular classroom and now in the Library Media Center.

When I was completing my certification as a Missouri eMints teacher I utilized My eCoach to create those digital items and projects needed for coursework. It was easy to create, store and provide to the evaluation team. Barbara was always available as a sounding board on these projects and helped me make them even better. She even assisted on the editing portion.

I love the resource of My eCoach! It has saved me many exhausting hours when creating lessons for my students or assisting proteges! "
